Profile exists under Original Rabbit Foot Spasm Band
What follows is a year by year outline of the history of the band - it goes on a bit, but quite a lot went on! There are many more tales to tell over and above this summary of events, and many people who really deserve a mention - there were five of us in the band but we could never have achieved half of what we did without so many fantastic friends and associates, and corny though it is, without all the thousands of fans who, let's face it, were the reason we were able to avoid getting grown up jobs for so long :) We intend to add some links and more content to this section in future...
An amalgam of LA’s finest punk bands and seasoned bluegrass musicians, Old Man Markley is creating music that defies boundaries and transcends genres. Founded in 2007 in the sunny San Fernando Valley, OMM cut its teeth playing countless jams of bluegrass standards and covers of distinctly un-bluegrass songs done bluegrass style. Soon, out of the chaos grew original material that combined everything the band loved about all the different styles of music the members grew up playing and writing. The band played its first official show in 2008 at a small bar called the Old Towne Pub in Pasadena.
Whacky, zany, crazy, mad, fun, and enjoyable are all adjectives which could be applied to this foursome of highly accomplished musicians. Their comical musical style is "anything goes" and spans a number of styles including skiffle, country, rock 'n roll and German Oompah.

FISTS have been writing and recording in various bedrooms and rehearsal spaces across Nottingham since 2006. Their noisy, joyful, occasionally ramshackle and always ferociously energetic live gigs display the FISTS sound in all its crisp, fresh, beautifully bruised glory. Sweet vocal harmonies, rich raw power; original, electrifying indie rock. FISTS have been picking up fans wherever they play thanks to a sound that intrigues, excites and never stops evolving and sprouting new life. The band has a tantalising and beguiling set of influences.
