Eat the Turnbuckle: Maybe THIS Is the World's Most Insane Live Band

Page 2 of 2

So who are these guys really? According to their Facebook page, their lineup, which takes an equally irreverent attitude toward their names, is rounded out by Chris Fear and Jag on vocals, Chubbrock and El Shlak-O on guitars, Captain Hook on bass, and Beerdust and "The Nature Boy" Antman on drums.

They also apparently feature a "locker room" wrestling crew for the staged matches during their shows, including Jobber Gene as their opponent to beat up, Mattitude as their referee and Soap as a cameraman.

So far the closest Eat the Turnbuckle seems to have come to Houston is an SXSW run in 2012, but it seems likely they'll make their way back to Texas eventually. Thanks to our readers putting us onto them, it seems likely Rocks Off will have to cover whatever Eat the Turnbuckle do when they get here, as it's sure to be one of the most bizarre live experiences in music today.
