Stoned Cobra
Stoned Cobra
Rock band from Birmingham, AL.

Stoned Cobra combines influences from 90's desert rock and early 70's metal.

The story of Stoned Cobra is one of confusion, inebriation, denim and leather. To the best of their knowledge, this is how it all happened.

Stoned Cobra was born in Birmingham, AL in 2006 as a side-project for 4 Alabama musicians who at the time came from bands in the speed metal, thrash and post-rock genres. The collaboration began as an idea to lose some of the speed and complexities within current projects and develop a heavier and more simplified sound; essentially combining the tones and power of 90’s “stoner rock” with the riffs and stylings of early 70’s classic metal. What started as something to do over a couple cases of beer, became a primary band and focus.

The original lineup consisted of Krothe (Filleter, Necronomikids) on guitar, Wahl (Promise the Ghost, Riding Giants) on bass, Reed (Alan Ogg, Mordex) on drums and Isley (Hoss, Astral Tramp) on guitar and vocals. In 2010 Wahl would move to second guitar and Isley would take over the bass. In 2015 Birmingham metal veteran, Alan Light (Mephotis, Catchfire), joined the band as bassist and quintessential hype man, allowing Isley to move back to (3rd) guitar. With all consideration of hearing ability aside, the heavy... got heavier.

Over the years Stoned Cobra developed a reputation as one of Birmingham’s heaviest bands with can’t-miss high energy shows. Many a goats have been thrown and heads banged beneath the green aura that lights their stage. They have performed with bands such as Torche, Truckfighters, Akimbo, Weedeater, Nashville Pussy, Artimus Pyledriver, Venomous Maximus, Valient Thorr, Inter Arma, Black Tusk, Coliseum, Man or Astro-Man and more; and under the influence of Good People Brew, Jose Cuervo, Miller High Life, Jack Daniels, and more.

The band has 2 releases to date: A split record with Birmingham metal band, Arclight, titled “Thrones” and a full length titled “High and Mighty”. The 2013
self-released record would sell out in weeks.

Currently the band is writing for a series of EPs (“Armed and Hammered” and “Set in Stoned”) set to be released in late 2015 and 2016.

The Dexateens
The Dexateens
Back from only God knows where comes the triumphant return of the seminal garage, indie, country, punk, yet Alabama rock-n-roll collective, the Dexateens. The torch carriers of ‘Blue Collar Rock’ are proud to announce their first official release in over four years and their sophomore offering on Cornelius Chapel Records, the label started by the band and run by extended band family. The ‘teens are proudly contrived of a cabinet maker, a carpenter (or two at times), multiple restaurant and bar employees, and one full-time Drive-By Trucker. The Dexateens have ‘seen it all like a mountain’ and their tide rolls in with an undertow, validated working class renaissance men, well-versed in culture, art, music and life. Workingman’s blues with an insatiable appetite for high decibels, fuzzy crunch, sweaty soul and a penchant for Deep South traditions as pure and unadulterated as one can muster in 2016.

Teenage Hallelujah captures a rock band approaching a line-up swan song, marking the end to Lee Bains’ tenure on guitar and vocals and making way for longtime pal and co-conspirator Taylor Hollingsworth (Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band, Dead Fingers) and his always finger-picked, custom licks and slides. Brad Armstrong (13ghosts) holds court stage right on his trademark telecasters, bringing as much noise as subtle nuances in one heavily bearded attack. As per usual the boom bap finds Brian Gosdin behind the kit with his gigantic cymbal, impervious back beat, and dead-on DeeDee Ramone-esque ‘1-2-3-4’ count off. The founding members are bassist Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers, Model Citizen) and Elliott McPherson steering the ship in the song writing department as well as lead vocals and guitar. Everyone plays lead guitar at one point or another and sometimes all over each other and that, my friends, is ‘the special sauce’. The new regime anticipates another record release in the near future.
The sought after triple guitar attack is on full display in Teenage Hallelujah, however flags are flown high with boundless gems tickling classic country, loose garage punk, and mainline folk. Captured mostly in McPherson’s barn with the, at times mobile, all the time wunderkind, producer/sound engineer Bronson Tew (Dial Back Sound) at the helm and ultimately producing the record with the band, all songs being penned by McPherson.

The Dexateens have always been a ‘super group’ of sorts, spanning Alabama’s punk and rock scenes and from there the song has remained the same. The live show is finely tuned to that off a howling SR-71 Blackbird set to the soundtrack of dueling stereo’s pumping The Quadrajets and Waylon Jennings in one ornate cacophony. The Dexateens are exactly what rock and roll has been missing for nearly 5 years, back to stake claim on what they helped begin and perhaps break it down only to rebuild it stronger and better than ever to shake off the poseurs and malcontents.

The band plans to tour extensively in support of Teenage Hallelujah, slated for a October 7th release on Cornelius Chapel Records. The Dexateens are back to fill that void a handful of years in the making, gladly taking one city at a time, one venue at a time, one fan at a time. There’s always room for the workin’ man…
