The Split Squad, Stupidity + Guests

Time for the summer gig of 2018. This time we hit PSB in Stockholm together with “The Super Group of Garage Rock”..The Split Squad.
For those of you who doesn´t know about them, here is more info..:

Clem Burke: Arguably one of the greatest living rock and roll drummers on the planet, Dr. Burke (Google that…it’s cool) boasts a resume that starts at CBGB’s in the 70’s and ends at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As a founding member of Blondie and a highly sought-after session musician, Clem has experienced nearly every aspect of the music business, but still has more passion to “climb in the van and take it to the fans” than most musicians half his age. 

Keith Streng: Known far and wide as a founding member of one of rock and roll’s greatest (and longest running) institutions, The Fleshtones, guitarist Streng sets a standard for passion and dedication that few are able to follow. 40 years on (and counting), The Fleshtones remain one of rock’s greatest “sure things”: never a bad show; never an off night. 

Eddie Munoz: Most famously known as the flash guitarist from LA’s legendary Plimsouls, Eddie has more recently been spotted in Magic Christian (alongside Flamin’ Groovies legend Cyril Jordan) and PA’s power pop stalwarts Parallax Project. Eddie’s “chaos theory” approach to rock and roll guitar is unique and immediately recognizable, yet squarely rooted in the timeless swagger of The Stones and The Yardbirds. 

Michael Giblin: Bassist/singer Giblin is the mad scientist behind The Split Squad, having assembled the project after his current band, Parallax Project, had crossed paths with all of the others on various tours and recording projects. Known in underground pop circles as a member of the much loved 90’s power pop trio Cherry Twister. 

Giblin has spent many years toiling away in the bowels of the music biz as a session bassist, band leader, producer, and generally good guy. Most recently, Michael has been playing bass alongside Scott McCaughey & Peter Buck in their long running music collective, The Minus 5.

Josh Kantor: Keyboardist Josh Kantor brings the wildest diversity to the mix. As a member of Boston’s Jim’s Big Ego, and the critically acclaimed supergroup The Baseball Project (featuring members of The Dream Syndicate and R.E.M.) 

Josh has rubbed elbows with a number of rock luminaries, but he still manages to find time to excel at his day job, which just happens to be as the organist for The Boston Red Sox. Yes, THOSE Boston Red Sox. As such, Josh possesses a skill level and musical vocabulary that few can match. 

The group came together in Boston in the summer of 2012 to record an album, which ended up being a raucous and hilarious good time. Produced by Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows), the album features guest appearances by McCaughey, fellow rock & Roll Hall of Famer Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four), and Mike Gent (The Figgs). Since then, the band has toured intermittently across the US, Canada, and Europe, including numerous appearances at SXSW, as well as the Andoaingo Rock Jaialdia festival in Spain, and the Fete de la Musique in Paris. Look for a new release coming in 2018 Ladies and gentlemen The Split Squad!!
So this is a gig you really don´t want to miss.
Be there and Rock On..
