The Bloody Turncoat's Bio -
The Bloody Turncoats are an agglomeration of stupidity, ineptitude, and a severe aversion to manual labor. So, as common sense dictates, they decided that music was their natural outlet. Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, a hotbed of punkless bands, The Bloody Turncoats set out to create a new kind of punk rock music.
The Bloody Turncoats consist of Karl Miller, Dean Johnson, Morgan Philbrook, and Mike Rasque. Karl, a native of the Upper Pennisula of MI (pause for chuckle), plays the guitar rather poorly. They'd throw him out of the band but he writes most of the songs so they're stuck with him. Dean Johnson is their drummer (seeing as how I am Dean Johnson I will only write glowing things about me. All of which are true). He is the most wonderful drummer in the world with a sense of percussive genius and impeccable groove. Morgan Philbrook is the bassist. He plays both the upright and electric bass guitar. He looks stunning in a pair of neatly pressed slacks and fancies himself a smooth pimp with "much love" for the ladies. Rasque, the front man, spouts lyrics with angelic tones. He also smells of Stetson and is surprisingly couth.
Dean and Karl have been musically concocting for about six years and have recorded three albums together, Deathbed Repentance, Saboteurs, and The Bloody Turncoats Admire Your Skull. Rasque and Morgan came on board more recently. They recently finished their latest EP, Mouthful of Pennies, and will be heading back to the studio later in '08 to record a few more tracks. They remain, inexplicably, unsigned.
Is that bio enough for you?
