The band's debut album, 'Burn The Beauty Queen', will be released in September, so we thought it would be a good idea to get in there before and find out what all the fuss is about and discover the sounds that shape this wild and colourful four-piece.....

ABmix86We can't think of a better band to feature in Uber Rock's Midnite Mixtape Massacre than those pesky Autopsy Boys! Their new album, 'Return Of The Acid Casualty Auto Humans', featured legendary scream queen, Debbie Rochon, so a thirteen-track mixtape would, surely, be unlucky for everyone except you clued-in readers. The band's Lee Brunskjill wiped the gore off a C90 and pressed record.....

taylormix86Purple are probably the coolest band to hail from the small town of Beaumont, Texas. While their debut album was an ear bomb of infectious punk pop done just right, the sophomore album is a modern slice of sexy, alt. rock with a slick production and more influences than you can shake a stick at. Uber Rock caught up with guitarist/vocalist Taylor Busby to find out about those influences and discover why you should hit the parking lot and ride the 'Mini Van' with the Texas trio.
