The Ghosts of Texas were formed in 2006 by JonBoy and Curt in a bar in Denton, TX. They were tired of all the bulls*** country music and lamented that no one, save a few intrepid artists (like Wayne “The Train” Hancock), were out there playing real country music. They set about that day trying to right the wrongs that had been done with slap bass, hard luck songs and whiskey. They commissioned th…e services of long time friend and general badass, Andrew, to come on board as a multi-instrumentalist and the band was formed. A couple years of training and playing in Denton and the boys felt it was time to move to a bigger pond. They loaded up their things and moved down to muy fabuloso Austin, TX. Shortly after, they enlisted Eedann to round out the three part harmonies and sing duets, and then the conquest began….

The Revival was born early 2010 with a goal to express themselves in an independent but rooted way. Their classic rock and folk influences, combined with an interesting modern twist, makes an unforgettable sound that stamps itself in the head of the listener. A warm acoustic rhythm guitar, a piercing electric lead, and a solid rhythm section makes this soulful four piece an experience everyone can enjoy.

MARTY VOLUME- Guitar
JOHNNY O. NEGATIVE- Bass
JOEY THE KID- Drums
Unlike most band stories, the story of the LOWER CLASS BRATS did not start out “innocently enough”. It was more like a full-blown attack on their local music scene. The war started in January 1995 in Austin, Texas when the BRATS set out to destroy all of the emo, college and garage bands that had some how taken over their city. Many years, countless beers and drug additctions later, the boys are s…till waging war. Not just in their hometown though, with the help of fans world wide they’ve set out to take over the planet. In the time that the LOWER CLASS BRATS have been pounding out their own brand of Rock N’ Roll Street Noize they have released a fuck-load of CD’s, LP’s, 12″‘s, and 7″‘s. Including appearances on several compilations, live DVD’s and soundtracks in two different films (nudge, nudge- wink, wink). In the past decade the BRATS have toured the globe. Mexico, Germany, North America, Canada, England, Japan, France and many, many other countries have witnessed the boys in action. And the LOWER CLASS BRATS don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. From their first gig over fourteen years ago, to this day- L.C.B. always steals the show.

They have been quoted as being proud to be fat, drunk, and stupid.
