is a Rock n' Roll duo from Rockford, IL, which features multi-instrumentalist and Producer, Micky Torpedo, on Bass VI and Vocals, and wild man, Skitch Patterson (aka David Doyle, aka Doyle E. Coyote!) on drums.
Though they've been longtime friends, the two had never collaborated musically, but Micky had always appreciated and admired Skitch's approach to the drums. After traveling the world a few times over, Skitch eventually returned to his hometown of Rockford, and Micky started writing songs around Skitch's drumming style. The two began jamming in 2019, and slowly they created, and refined, this collection of tunes over the next year and a half.
After only a handful of live performances, the pandemic threw a grenade
into reality. Fast forward a few months, after having some time to digest
this new existence, the band reconvened. They had a few socially distant
recording sessions in the summer of 2020 at Underground Squirrel Studio
in Rockford, IL, eventually completing the album the following winter.
This self titled debut is a rowdy, grungy, angsty, and at times, beautifully
landscaped collection of unique tunes, that make a great musical snapshot
of this shared moment in time. The album features guest appearances by
Phil Torpedo (noise guitar) and Amanee Avery (saxophone). It's available
Squirrel Studio online store. Otherwise, it can be found on most streaming
