Last Cigarette (Houston, TX)
The Last Cigarette was formed in November 2010, just a month after Josh Armstrong moved from Amarillo, TX to Houston to play in his best friend, Nathan Taylor’s band, Speedqueen. With original drummer, Randy Hill, the band saw early moderate success. However, Randy exited the band and was replaced with Peter Bas (Commie Hilfiger, Los de Verdad) in April 2011. Chris Nundini (Commie Hilfiger) later filled Nathan’s shoes in December of 2011.
The Last Cigarette has since developed into a solid and intuitive entity. With occasional special guest appearances by pedal steel player Will Van Horn (Robert Ellis, I am Mesmer), their signature sound blends the boundaries between gritty rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and authentic Texas country with a punk rock attitude.
