MUSIC SCENE: Feb. 25, 2011
Through lineup changes, political controversy and being banned by the United State’s northern neighbor, one thing remains the same: Guttermouth is still punk.
Guttermouth with guests Bold Type and Revive Reagan will make some noise beginning at 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at Rocky Mountain Pub, 539 Colorado Ave.
Formed in the 1980s, the Huntington Beach, Calif., band could care less about the PC police. “(Mark) Adkins has been rebelling against whatever rules or standards government, society or ‘the scene’ have set, since the inception of the band,” according to a biography from Volcom Entertainment.
It was an public indecency incident in Saskatoon that resulted in Guttermouth being band in Canada for a couple years.
The banner across the band’s website (http://www.xxx-guttermouth-xxx.com) declares that “10 albums later Guttermouth is still punking.”
The band’s 10th album “Shave the Planet,” was released in 2006 on Volcom, which describes the release as “a return to their roots, a la Musical Monkey and Teri Yakimoto, spewing social satire, equal opportunity insults, and medicated delusional rants.”
Guttermouth embarked on its Winter Tour 2011 earlier this month, playing venues in Colorado and Salt Lake City.
Tickets for Saturday’s show are $15.
Call 245-0995 or go to the band’s website for information.
