Bloodshot Bill started playing in his hometown of Montreal, around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he has had over 30 releases throughout Europe, the USA and Canada - all places he has toured over the years. He was banned from entering the States for 5 years (2006-2011) and made his first "comeback" show in America at the Norton Records 25th Anniversary Weekend, performing alongside such legendary acts as Andre Williams, The Sonics & The South Bay Surfers. His hair is slicked with his own brand of grease, "Nice 'n' Greasy", and plays his guitar through his custom made Richtone Amp. He's been in lotsa bands you've never heard of (Hubcaps, Guilloteens, Bootlegs). Won FME's Coup De Coeur prize in 2007. Released records with Mark "BBQ" Sultan as The Ding- Dongs. Has been in several films & documentaries. Collaborates with King Khan as Tandoori Knights. Has been the spokesmen for a hamburger, The Degeue ("disgusting burger" translated). Usually travels alone as a one man band.http://www.facebook.com/Paintfumes?ref=tshttp://slovenly.bandcamp.com/album/paint-fumes-egyptian-rats-ep
Slovenly Recordings is putting some massive balls back into the garage-punk vinyl circuit with this screaming 7" blaster from Charlotte, NC's PAINT FUMES! The three Johnny Thunders/ Oblivians channeling blasts on this debut 45 are cut from the same loin cloth as the legendary roster of '90s Crypt / In The Red Records ilk that gave us our biggest erection sets since the so-called death of punk! Take a whiff of "Egyptian Rat," b/w "Waste of Time" and "Panic Attack" - these cuts (exclusive to this single) bring the supreme scuzz, and enough wail and feedback to hold you over until you can huff their "Uck Life" (sic[k]) long player in Spring 2012!
