TurboShandy: Conjured from the mind of a disgruntled songwriter from Northern Ireland with no band in late 2011, TurboShandy is a one-man powerpop project inspired by alcohol, sugar, and girls. The music takes its cue from bands like Ramones, the Wildhearts, 90s/00s pop punk, post punk, and pretty much anything with big hooks they think cool. Their first mini-album, 'No Wonder No One Talks To Her' was released in August 2012 and a follow up is currently being recorded.

The Boffo Yux Dudes: Laughably ignorant schlubbs who have been doing this for a long time, We're very dangerous, in that our music gets stuck in your head and you can't get it out short of a crowbar. The Dudes reformed in 2009, creating music new music for the confused masses. Allan Morgan and Tom Giarrosso head this version of BYD with rabid optimism that they'll be remembered for more than just all those replays on Dr. Demento. We also do impressions of small barnyard animals and shadow puppets with our fingers.

Sid Brown: Sid dabbles in songwriting from time to time playing mostly guitar and fiddle. As of late he has kept to himself strumming in a quiet corner of North Carolina, keeping hidden so as to not melt the skulls of the innocent with his sick melodies. It is also rumored he hates the sound of his own voice. The highlight of his career was playing fiddle in a very cool cover band with Kevin Savino-Riker years ago.

Ominous Ride: Ominous Ride is the product of dangerously precarious self-exploration and a slew of nefarious chemicals. Never letting the inevitability of mediocrity get in the way, O.R. has built a reputation for melting minds and skewering hearts. As one fan put it, "I wish I had been conceived to this music..."

Ross Durand: Ross writes songs. He plays guitar and sings so that he can deliver his songs. He hopes his songs can make people think, laugh, and/or not feel alone in the world. Concerning Spintunes - there is a popular definition of insanity that says it is the state of doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. Apparently Ross is insane.

Brian Gray: If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and so die. That strain again! it had a dying fall: O! it came o’er my ear like the sweet sound that breathes upon a bank of violets, stealing and giving odour.
