Since 1984, Sonoma County’s groove/thrash/bad-acid/punk/noise/metal/samba trio Victims Family has earned a reputation as one of the most consistently interesting bands in the underground. Musically diverse and lyrically ironic and topical, the group has become known for its prodigious displays: intense, impassioned playing while maintaining a sense of humor.
Always destroying eardrums and expectations, Victims Family toured the world relentlessly, recording 6 LPs and garnering a fanatical cult following throughout the United States and Europe. After breaking up in 1994, Bassist Larry Boothroyd and Guitarist-Vocalist Ralph Spight continued to create music in the bands Saturn’s Flea Collar and Hellworms before re-forming with drummer David Gleza to record 2001’s Apocalicious. After Gleza’s departure in 2004, drummer Tim Solyan returned to reform the classic line-up of the band.
Since then Victims Family has played regularly in Northern California, did two European tours, recorded a 7 “Have a Nice Day” in 2012 and played a number of high profile shows.
2022 finds them completing tracks for an upcoming split LP with Portland’s Nasalrod and beginning to undertake a more active touring schedule going into 2023.
Gibby Haynes is a founder and the lead singer of legendary punk band The Butthole Surfers. He is also a DJ, painter, author of a YA novel, and has appeared in several classic films. Gibby spends his time these days being a baseball dad, when he’s not fronting a band of raucous teenagers.
Paul Green Rock Academy
