About The Schizophonics:
Over the last few years, THE SCHIZOPHONICS have built up a formidable reputation around the world as an explosive live act. Tapping into the same unstoppable combination of rock 'n' roll energy and showmanship that fueled THE MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, their wild live show is heavily influenced by artists like JAMES BROWN, IGGY POP, JIMI HENDRIX, LITTLE RICHARD, and THE SONICS. Singer/guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers formed the band in San Diego in 2009 and have worked tirelessly since then, playing hundreds of shows around the globe and winning 7 San Diego music awards. In 2013 they were recruited as the backing/opening band for EL VEZ, which helped the band make a name for itself in Europe. Since then, they've played in fourteen countries, and supported tours by like-minded acts like ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT, LITTLE BARRIE, and THE WOGGLES and have opened for the DAMNED, HIVES and CAGE THE ELEPHANT. Shindig magazine described their live show "Like watching some insane hybrid of WAYNE KRAMER, JAMES BROWN, and the Tazmanian Devil". “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim Mays, who has run the Casbah in San Diego for 30 years and has seen literally thousands of live bands come through his doors. “The Schizophonics bring the goods every time they play,” he enthuses.
The band is more than just an outstanding live act, they’re also committed to writing great, memorable songs. After releasing 2 singles and an EP over the last few years on Munster, Ugly Things, and Pig Baby Records, they put out their first full-length album in July 2017 titled Land Of The Living on the label Sympathy For The Record Industry with famed record man Long Gone John. In January of 2019 they started work on their 2nd LP recruiting Dave Gardner (Hot Snakes, RFTC) mixing engineer Stephen Kaye ( JD McPherson, Mike Krol) and Pierre De Reeder (Rilo Kiley) to put their live, raw sound to tape. The album titled People in the Sky will be released on October 31st, 2019 on Pig Baby Records.
“Fast-paced punk and psychedelia culminate together to create what we call ‘Chives.’ Face-melting yet danceable tunes that bring any crowd to the soles of their shoes” -Maxwell Denari
“After four years of 7-inch vinyl and cassette releases, the arrival of the first full-length Chives LP is a major event for dedicated fans and an exciting introduction for new listeners. Led by singer-songwriter-guitarist Ryan Perkins, the Indianapolis group is an intense but fun combination of punk-rock roots, psychedelic vibes, and a twisting, turning, angular punch that reminds me of Zappa, Beefheart, Sparks, the Residents, Snakefinger, Devo, and--well, I think you get the picture! The title track has a great “majestic” heavy-metal feel, but sabotages any generic possibilities with eccentric vocalizing and changes that feel like they come from Indiana avant-gurus MX-80 Sound, not Metallica. Dig “Opus & Absentia,” which seems to alternately reference Thin Lizzy, the Sweet, and Sparks--or something?--killer outta-kilter stuff! “Pistol” has a similar off-center heavy swagger--check them double leads! There are also some Chives favorites revived and re-arranged a bit: “Family Pearls,” “Payasso,” “Porcelain.” This is an amazing debut from a major talent who deserves to be known far outside Indiana and the Midwest!” --Eddie Flowers, Vulcher magazine
