Band Bio

Listen, if you dare, to a story so bizarre that it has been known to make women faint and grown men shriek in terror. Out of a time-rotted tomb crawls an unspeakable horror, the Tremors, "the Scourge of the South". The dark and twisted tale of the Tremors begins in 1957, when AWOL marine and cough syrup addict, Stretch Armstrong(drums), met escaped mental patient, Jimmy Tremor (guitar, vocals) and former alligator wrestler, Slim Perkins(bass), at "The Happy Gizzard" a tar-paper shack that served as the local honky-tonk for the citizens of Sibly, NC. The trio was often seen blasting out the new Sun records of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins on the club's jukebox. By 1958, the boys had their own band and toured extensively on the "Chitlin' Circuit" of the deep south. Then came the fateful night in Birmingham, AL when the band was paid entirely in booze, resulting in the alcohol poisoning deaths of all three members. When the bodies were shipped back to Sibly, the townspeople refused to let the Tremors be buried in the sacred ground of the church cemetary. As the stand-off between the next of kin and the townspeople ensued, the corpses began to mummify(probably due to their over-zealous consumption of "Pappy's corn juice" as Jimmy puts it) and the Tremors were soon back in show business touring with "Col. Bolt Upright's Cavalcade of Freaks and Oddities" out of Sherivport, LA. "The Zombie Hillbilly Band", as they were billed, was a strong draw(better than they ever did when they were alive) until the 1970's, when freak shows went out of public favor. In 1981, the band was "abducted"(for a sum of $50) from Col. Upright by extraterrestials, from the planet Zorcon, who had recently received broadcast transmission of new singing sensation, Elvis Presley, and had set out across the universe to bring back a rock'n'roll specimen. Telepathically sensing the vibrations of the "big beat" from Stretch's left hand, the aliens re-animated the boys, feeling that the "mummy" angle gave the band a much needed gimmick. Once again the dixie -fried deviants were drawing crowds at their new home in the Zorconian Museum of Natural History. The Tremors were number one on the inter-planetary charts and there was even talk of a feature film. They had the galaxy in the palms of their hands and then disaster struck. Broadcast transmissions of the Beatles on the "Ed Sullivan Show" reached Zorcon and the Tremors were returned to earth and exchanged for a band with a more "mop-top" appeal. Since their return in 2003, the trio has released their earth-bound debut "the Scourge of the South", the "Uranium Rock EP"(in "Glow-in-the-Dark" cd & vinyl formats) and "Invasion of the Saucermen"(with 3-D "Tremorvision" graphics) on Brain Drain Records and moved to the thriving metropolis of Greensboro, NC, "where they have them newfangled movin' picture shows" says Stretch. They also frequent the city's many tattoo parlors, where, as Slim says "the needle reminds us of the pain of the living." . Jimmy sums up the feeling of the band, "I'm sure glad they didn't bury us."
