Underland Express
Underland Express
Retro Rock, Psychedelic, Surf, Garageband, Proto-punk, Rock and Roll from Birmingham AL

Underland Express (Birmingham, Al): a new band with an ancient sound. It began as a collaboration between Jeff Waites (Zarinah and the Zaratans, High Fidelics) and Bobby Shiflett (The Other Day, Alamantra). These two cats originally played with each other in an early 1980s band known locally as Subject II Change but drifted apart. This year (2016) they got back together with some of their other mutual friends to play tribute night shows for Joy Division and David Bowie at Saturn, one of Birmingham's BEST venues. This inspired the two of them to board the "Underland Express" to explore reverb saturated strange and forgotten worlds and to share their mutual love for old psychedelic retro rock, proto punk and garageband music. It's got that rock and roll hoodoo beat that you feel in your pelvis and your feet and you won't go home alone! The shows are going to be a PARTY .
