Neon Crocodiles....Show # 314

The Crocodiles, who are from San Diego, California formed in 2008. The band which can be best described as a Noise Pop and Indie Rock band, draws influences from bands such as Jesus and The Mary Chain, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Spacemen 3. The bands members Brandon Welchez (programming/vocals) and Charles Rowel (guitar/syntheziser) were put together from two separate Noise Punk bands called The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower and Some Girls. The band gained a good amount of exposure when they released a split 7 inch single with the band No Age. Their song featured on this 2008 single was called "Neon Jesus". The band describe thier music and artistic merits by their own credo, guitars, loud, feedback, bliss. In April of 2009, The Crocodiles released their first album, which was entited Summer of Hate on Fat Possum Records.

The Crocodiles have been acknowledged as being an excellent live band and have released several split 7 inch singles and singles of their own since the release of Summer of Hate. Recently they have released a single for the song "Sleep Forever" which is a song from their next upcoming album which will be titled Sleep Forever. The album is set to be released in September 2010.
