Since their inception in 2012, the Spurs have kept a relentless schedule of recording, playing locally, and touring. After nearly 500 live appearances in almost a dozen countries, and with a slew of albums and singles to their name, Jenny Don’t and The Spurs are just getting warmed up.

The Spurs were founded one cold, winter’s evening by Jenny and Kelly. Jenny had been fronting her own band, DON’T, for some time, as well as playing the occasional solo acoustic set here and there. Kelly, who had been in a slew of Portland punk bands since the 80’s, and who had spent the previous several years balancing a grueling touring schedule playing drums with the garage rock trio PIERCED ARROWS and bass with Portland punk-rock destroyers P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., and wanted to switch gears a bit. After the concept of forming a raw, real, and back-to-the-roots country band had taken hold, it wasn’t long before the couple was rehearsing a seminal set of standards by such influential early country crooners and outlaws like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ernest Tubb, and Hank Sr., as well as a sprinkling of originals. It was only a few weeks later that Kelly’s bandmates Fred and Toody Cole got wind of the developing musical project that was taking form in Jenny and Kelly’s kitchen and decided to call their bluff by giving them an unsolicited support slot on an upcoming show featuring the Cole’s own solo two-piece act. Not having anticipated such a high-profile live appearance as a first live outing, and feeling like the guitar-and-bass-only lineup that the band had started life as was lacking something on the rhythm end of things, they decided to ask their friend Sam Henry to join them on drums. Sam, who in addition to being Jenny’s bandmate in DON’T and sometimes solo-set-collaborator, had already had a long, well-respected career as one of Portland’s best drummers, having played with such first-generation punk bands as the Wipers, The Rats and Napalm Beach. After a couple of weeks of practice, the debut live appearance of the band went off without a hitch and the core lineup of Jenny Don’t and The Spurs was born. The trio of Jenny, Kelly, and Sam existed in this form for the first year-an-a-half or so of the band’s existence, playing whatever local venue would take them – bars, clubs, porches, basements, backyards, and even a bookstore. This worked well for a while, and occasionally the Spurs would enlist talent from a pool of several friends to sit in on lead guitar or lap steel. The addition of a second guitar rounded out the sound of the band to the point where Jenny and Co. decided to make it a permanent part of the band’s lineup. After a couple of false starts and a bit of difficulty finding a fourth member who could commit to the Spur’s sometimes grueling touring schedule, the incredible Christopher March became a member of the family in early 2017. Christopher brought with him a wealth of talent and live gig experience, having spent years playing on the Northwest Country, Rockabilly, and Honky-Tonk circuit.

This lineup – Jenny, Kelly, Christopher, and Sam – formed the core of the group for several great years, solidifying the band’s sound and enabling them to tour extensively until January of 2022.  It was at this point, while on their winter West coast tour in California, that Sam began experiencing abdominal pains.  His discomfort increased to the point where the band had to cancel the last date of the tour in order to get Sam to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with late-stage cancer.  This was devastating news for Sam, the band, and all of the people around the world that loved him, and when, only weeks later, Sam passed away after a brief battle with the disease, everyone was stunned. As saddened and lost as the remaining members of the band were, there was really no question as to whether the band would continue.  Sam was truly dedicated to his art until the very end, and there was no way that he would have wanted the band to dissolve.  He had dedicated his life to his music and the last ten years of his life to Jenny Don’t and The Spurs, and the surviving members of the band decided without reservation to keep Sam’s legacy alive by continuing to play.  The search for a new drummer turned up a lot of candidates, but it was veteran Portland musician Dean Miles who made the cut.  We’re happy to have him as the newest family member, and we know that Sam would be proud to know that a guy as cool as Dean is sitting behind the kit.

Now, with a revamped lineup, as well as a decade of live appearances under their tooled-leather Western belts, the Spurs aren’t slowing down a bit. The Spurs are a musical force to be reckoned with, and the intensity and energy of their live set is a must-see for anyone who enjoys spirited garage-infused country music played with sincerity and raw conviction.

Twin Tribes are a darkwave post-punk band from Brownsville, Texas. They formed the band in the summer of 2017 and have released 2 studio albums to date.

Creem Magazine Feature Story – June 2022

John Peel reportedly coined the term “darkwave” during his radio show while describing the sound of Dutch band Clan of Xymox. There is no actual record of this – I asked the band’s frontman Ronny Moorings if he recalled when the term originated, and he didn’t know either. No matter the origin, the term “darkwave” as a description of dark post-punk music—or dare I say “goth” – is more popular than ever. Mexican-American band Twin Tribes is certainly one of the best darkwave bands worldwide right now. Frontman Luis Navarro is said by some to resemble Michael from the South Park but come on guys, don’t be a poser! it’s just the hair.

With their new brand of modern darkwave, Twin Tribes have brought things full circle, even influencing Clan of Xymox’s sound on the band’s past few albums. Their single “Fantasmas” from their second studio album Ceremony went viral, with over a million listens on YouTube, nearly a year before the band was able to film their diabolically macabre haunted house music video for the song.

The Queers are a punk rock band who’ve been delivering fast, loud, snotty music since the early 1980s, playing the role of beer-sodden teenagers even as they’ve grown into middle age. Their tunes are recognizable for their no-frills pogo punk and purposely puerile lyrics that flaunt bad taste at every turn, sometimes bordering on sexism and homophobia. The Queers first locked down their trademark style with 1993’s Love Songs for the Retarded, they hit peak velocity on 1996’s Don’t Back Down and 2002’s Pleasant Screams, and showed off their influences on 2021’s all-covers set Reverberation.

Formed in 1982, this Portsmouth, New Hampshire group ambled its way through the 1980s, recording a few singles and compilation tracks along the way, most of which were collected on ‘s A Day Late and a Dollar Short. Before recording their first full-length studio album, Grow Up, the Queers finally settled on a permanent lineup consisting of singer/guitarist Joe King/Queer, drummer Hugh O’Neill, and bassist B-Face. Grow Up was released on a small English label called , which promptly went belly up after only 1,000 copies were pressed. frontman got label owner Larry Livermore to sign the Queers, and in 1993 released the -produced Love Songs for the Retarded. Love Songs was followed by a yearly salvo of bubblegum punk, from 1994’s Beat Off to 1996’s magnum opus Don’t Back Down, the best late-’70s-era album never recorded.

After a long bout with brain cancer, O’Neill died on January 21, 1999; Later Days and Better Lays, issued that spring, assembled unreleased Queers material recorded during his tenure with the band. B-Face next left the band, and after signing with , the Queers went through various lineups as King remained the only constant. Released in 2000, Beyond the Valley… marked the first studio album since O’Neill’s death and, somewhat fittingly, was a relatively darker album than the rest of the band’s prior catalog. A string of releases followed in the early 2000s, including the Today EP, Live in West Hollywood, and Pleasant Screams. A split with appeared in 2003, and the classics collection Summer Hits, Vol. 1 was issued the next fall. Recorded live during a two-day stint at Bernie’s Distillery in Columbus, Ohio, the Queers next released the aptly titled album Weekend at Bernie’s in May 2006. The record featured King joined by ‘ Philip Hill on bass and Dave Trevino on drums.

That same year, began reissuing several of the band’s classic albums (remixed and remastered), starting with 1993’s Love Songs for the Retarded. In February 2007, and also via , the Queers released Munki Brain, their first album of new material since 2002, while they commemorated their 25th year of immaturity with the DVD The Queers Are Here, which was chock-full of live footage, interviews, and music videos. The reissues continued into 2007. In 2010, the Queers issued their 11th LP, Back to the Basement. The next year they released a split 7″ with Killtime titled Alive (), followed by 2013’s Ole Maestro, a 38-song live set recorded in Madrid, Spain, in 2009. In 2015, the trio released a limited-edition re-recorded version of Beyond the Valley… entitled Beyond the Valley Revisited. Another split 7″ — The Queers Regret Making a Record with Bassamp and Dano — arrived in 2017. 2021 brought not one but two new albums from the Queers — a typically snotty set of originals, The Queers Save the World, and their first full LP of covers, Reverberation, where they put their stamp on tunes by , , , , , and, of course, the Queers.~ Kembrew McLeod & Mark Deming
