Nirvana's favorite band celebrates 40 years at PTR for their European tour!
No need for a biography, they influenced the greatest:
Arguably one of the most influential artists of the past 40 years, the Melvins have never ceased to be the heaviest band of all time. From the day I put the needle on their 1987 debut album, 'Gluey Porch Treatments', I've been inspired by their signature, offbeat vibe, just like countless other bands who consider them kings. of the North West music scene. – Dave Grohl
The Melvins changed music forever. They are the true initiators of grunge. They are unstoppable. – Adam Jones, Tool.
Taipei Houston is a duo from the Bay Area in Northern California. Comprised of brothers Myles (drums, guitar) and Layne Ulrich (lead vocals, bass), who play drums and bass respectively, the band was born out of the two brothers' return to their childhood home during the pandemic. They then moved to Los Angeles, and once they were able to perform on stage again, they began performing concerts all over Southern California.
On their forthcoming EP, Once Bit Never Bored, Taipei Houston viscerally draws on the best elements of the past 30 years of rock 'n' roll, layering the frenzy of garage rock with the fuzzy overdrive of grunge, and the unrelenting instrumental range. effort of psych rock. The band's megawatt, smooth songs instantly evoke other iconic duos, such as The Kills, Death From Above 1979 and, of course, The White Stripes.
The band says of the project: “For us, Taipei Houston is about going against the grain in all areas. We live in a time when the challenges are extremely difficult and confusing. Technology is taking over the world more and more, politics has become so polarized that we are headed for climate disaster. This music was born and nurtured by the buzzing, contemporary digital anxiety we all feel, and how we can try to escape those feelings, even for a second.
