Alexisonfire
Alexisonfire
Alexisonfire is a hardcore punk band from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. The band's name is a sort-of homage to a contortionist stripper named Alexis Fire, who claimed to be the only lactating stripper. Despite popular belief, the band is called "Alexis On Fire" not "Alex Is On Fire". If you have an Alexisonfire tattoo the band permit you to see any of their live shows, anywhere, for free. Jesse Ingelevics is no longer part of the band and has been replaced by Jordan Hastings, former drummer of Jersey.
The Offspring
The Offspring
Bryan "Dexter" Holland : Vocals, guitar
Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman : Guitar, vocals
Gregory "Greg K" Kriesel : Bass, vocals
Pete Parada : Drums
Ron Welty : Drums, vocals (1987-2003)
Adam "Atom" Willard: Drums (2003-2007)

Originally calling themselves Manic Subsidal, the Offspring began performing in 1984, composed of Bryan Holland (vocals, guitar), Greg Kriesel (bass, vocals) and James Frederick Lilja (drums).

James Lilja left the band in 1987 and former Clowns of Death guitarist Kevin Wasserman and Ron Welty joined and they changed their name to The Offspring.

In 2003 Ron Welty left the band, leaving them without a drummer for about half the year (and forcing them to use a session drummer, Josh Freese, for their Splinter album) before Atom Willard joined the group toward the end of 2003.

Willard left the band in 2007 and was replaced by former Face To Face drummer Pete Parada. Josh Freese was, again, hired to record the drum tracks for the Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace album.
The Dirty Nil
The Dirty Nil
The Dirty Nil play rock and roll. Loud, distorted, and out of control, they play like it's a fever they're trying to sweat out. Reveling in the din of distorted guitars, pounding drums, and desperately howled vocals, the Hamilton Ontario three-piece makes music for turntables and hi-fi's - music for dive bars and house parties - for beer drinking and joint smoking - for road trips and barbecues - for fighting and yelling and shouting and singing and screaming and howling - for sweating and bleeding - trying and failing and trying again anyways. Gravel-in-your guts, spit-in-your-eye, staggering, bloodthirsty rock and roll. They have two 7"s available that capture the snarl and destructive noise they create. The Dirty Nil play rock and roll - cause they couldn't do a damn thing else if they tried.
