Howard and the Nosebleeds (Houston, TX)
“Oh holy reverberating riffs of fire, oh symphonic demon noise of zen, shroud our souls eternally with your bombastic caterwauling. They came! we screamed! they are Howard and the Nosebleeds! Their melt-your-face-off jamathons for the eon are the perfect antidote for these Orwellian times, and that Pink Floyd cover they’ve been including is a perfect barnburner. “Always by your side! Always by your side! That cat’s something I can’t explain!” You’d better start believing in the Second Coming of Rock N Roll. They smell like punk pandemonium & feel like black magic blues. Say a prayer for whoever dares to stand in their way and lose.” – Poet and photographer and friend Brian Kenhide
