Banditos are reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival and Johnny Cash if they got into a brawl with the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin. Mary Beth Richardson, the only lady gracing Banditos on stage, can easily be seen as their secret weapon. As a whole, however, Banditos is a honky tonk, two steppin’ forcefield that the music industry needs. Staying away from anything electro, indie, or computerized, Banditos goes back to the roots of rock ‘n roll with their roughneck attitudes and raunchy instruments
CLEAR PLASTIC MASKS
Clear Plastic Masks formed in August of 2011 in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn. Long time friends, gigging and recording proceeded naturally leading to three tours in a year through the rust belt down to New Orleans. In December of 2011 and April of 2012 the band stopped to record a 7 inch and later a full album with Andrija Tokic at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN.
Rooted in the blue collar analog tradition of work a day rock n roll, the band strives always to be cracking the proverbial whip.
"It’s almost as though Kings of Leon and Jack White walked into a bar and created Eight Knives. Yes, I’m willing to say it’s THAT good. 8K has found the perfect combination between White’s distinctive, back-to-basics/ too-good-it’ll-never-be-on-the-radio rock and KOL’s also-good-but-radio-ready rock." – GotDott.com
