If you like you music sleazy and punk rock, catchy choruses and memorable riffs Dragstrip Guns are the band for you! Dragstrip Guns only formed in April last year but are fast becoming known for their energetic live shows. Andy Knott (The Gasoline Queens, Psychobabylon) has been playing drums in original bands since 1986 on the South East and London circuit. Bobby, Andy’s former bandmate in Psychobabylon, has made the step up from rhythm guitar and backing vocals to lead vocals in Dragstrip. He shares both lead vocals and songwriting duties with Stesh, a stalwart of the north east punk circuit since late 90s, formerly of the Drama Club Rejects, who also featured ex Wildheart Stidi and Nick Parsons, formerly of The Almighty. Mark Whitaker (Woke Up Dead) on bass, another regular on the Yorkshire punk circuit, completes the line up. The band are heading into the studio to record their first EP in December, which will be available on Bandcamp and all streaming platforms in the very near future!
