KINGS OF NUTHIN', THE
: Old Habits Die Hard (Black)
3000 miles away from home, bus broken down, 1 stolen piano, 3 saxaphones that want to kill each other and a $10.00 black suit. One of those moments in life where you start to think, "How the hell did I get here, and what the hell am I doing?"
Completely out of tune,Eight men strong and broken down not far from your hometown, they call themselves THE KINGS OF NUTHIN`. In the summer of 1999 "The Boston Blackouts" officially adopted their new name THE KINGS OF NUTHIN` and began playing outside of Massachusetts. Their history is as ludicrous as it gets, 8 punks trying to re-create an authentic rock and roll sound, failing to do so, and inventing a very unique new sound.
Rare in the music scene today to see or hear of such a story of complete "fuck-ups" who some how managed to "get their shit together" and become the reigning force THE KINGS OF NUTHIN` are today.
Stereo-type them as what you want, but there are few other bands that come close to what THE KINGS OF NUTHIN` have been through or the sound that they create. To this day the KINGS have toured many different countries playing all different types of shows and places.
From all-age punk matinees to late night drunken rockabilly shows, National hot rod venues to tattoo conventions, from DIY basement shows to sharing the stage with National Acts such as the Dropkick Murphys, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, U.S. Bombs, Demented Are Go, the Robins and the Extraordinaires.
Banned from many clubs around the country for the audience they attract, as well as their out of control live act (on and off the stage) and stolen or destroyed more vehicles, pianos, reputations than they might care to admit.
Why any of the members ever ended up sticking around is a mystery and why the band never fell apart again is unknown.
Through hard times, homelessness, constant equipment failure, many line-up changes and death, THE KINGS OF NUTHIN` continue to crank out their unique style of music and continue to win over new fans around the world.
