About the Bands:
Blowtorch is the creation of musician Bill Mullins (guitar, vocal harmonies) and artist Clark Russell (lead vocals). Justice Or Else features Mullins (from Pittsburgh and D.C.) playing all instruments, includes recorded samples by Russell (St. Louis). Burlington-based Blowtorch, a four-piece set, is fortified by (Philadelphia-area) brothers Justin Crowther (drums) and Noah Crowther (bass).
Full Walrus‘ music combines elements from a variety of strong influences such as Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Animal Collective, My Bloody Valentine and a number of other bands that are good!
