Ned Garthe Explosion
Ned Garthe Explosion
10 trillion years ago, when dinosaurs and dragons fought with spells and shit, a band was formed.

From the fiery depths of Mt. Doom the great volcano brought the four men to life. Out of the lava, four dudes naked as hell crawled out into the world. Fire n' shit was all over the place. This super rad wizard with a kick ass beard named all the dudes; Ned, Stuart, Tyler, and Spencer all ancient forgotten names from a forgotten language from a forgotten galaxy. The wizard gave the dudes some killer instruments that sounded crazy good. The four rad bros rocked through the ages.

Once born out of the crystal clear Rocky Mountain water, Colfax Speed Queen quickly dirtied their bones with distortion, tremolo, and plenty of slap back reverb just like their heroes from the 60's and 70's. CSQ is far from a revival band though. They're an original breed of garage, punk, rock, and surf. CSQ is not about going fast. They're about being hopped up and strung out on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Having been a fixture in the Portland music scene for the better part of a decade as front man for both No Tomorrow Boys and The Criminal Guitars, Danny Dodge’s first solo effort, “Baby, Let Me Be Your Mess” is a notable departure from the garage/punk of his former bands. Showcasing jangled power-pop riffs and clever lyrical hooks, Dodge’s new found project will relate more to the likes of The Byrds and Tom Petty than the punk of old. Songs like “You Need a Man, Not a Hurrican’” and “Worry ‘Bout Ya” cut to the heart of fond memories, romanticizing the listener with a 70’s era blast made by a front seat rock radio. The lyrical wordplay in songs like “Yakima Canutt” recall Dylan-esque motifs, smacked with a sense of dark humor Dodge acquired from long nights obsessing inside the American songbook. His obsession with things passed not only shaped him as a songwriter, but as a believer in the immortality of the hook. Enlisting the help of Dodge’s right hand man, Randal Blaschke on guitar, Roselit Bone’s Matt Mayhem and Victor Franco on bass and drums, respectively, Criminal Guitars’ Jacob Decker on organ and Jenny Don’t on backup vocals, Dodge built a powerful backing band to give life to the songs. The result is a 10 song collision of rock and country, diving into the well of Roger Miller and Stones-era Beggar’s Banquet with relative ease. Cut mostly live in a two day window at Portland’s Get Loud with Matt Drenik at the helm, there’s no denying the urgency and spirit of this Los Angeles rock ’n’ roll band.
