#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“Modern rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t get much trashier, dirtier or more frantic than Charlotte, N.C.’s Paint Fumes. These guys seem to live the results of huffing their name, spewing reckless rowdiness with a dizzying fury from every song. Uck Life is the garage-rock-rooted band’s debut LP, and it’s a balls-to-the-wall explosion of energetic grit and grime. Frontman Elijah von Cramon’s shouts and howls are too fiery to decipher, and paired with the frenetic riffs and drummer Josh Johnson’s relentless fast-paced pounding the sound threatens to blast out your eardrums even at low volume.”

Check out the band on Facebook, and BandCamp. Continuing our travels through the musical landscape of the USA courtesy of the Paste 50 States Project, we head to North Carolina to check out Paint Fumes. You like your RAWK with a dose of ‘nasty, garage, punk mess’? Check these dudes out. I want to thank Elijah Von Cramon (Guitar/Vocals), Brett Whittlesey (Guitars) and Josh Johnson (Drums) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, fellas. Pittsburgh in October? Cool beans. See you soon.
