It has been a long and winding road for local psychobilly outfit the Hellbound Saints. How do I know? I happened to have a pleasant and delightful phone call with bassist Brad T. We hemmed and hawed, relived old tales and basically shot the shit as we shared our secrets... and our lives.
The Hellbound Saints formed two years ago when Brad moved from the Carolinas to Utah, where he met fellow psychobilly enthusiast Kirby Anderson. They soon found out that they had similar musical tastes: the Cramps, the Meteors and the Misfits, among others. "Living in Utah County you don't run into many people who are into psychobilly...especially people willing to start a band with." After establishing a mutual love of music, they decided, to work on a musical project together. All they needed now, however, was a drummer – and in walks Ethan Anderson (no relation) who solidified the line-up.
After four weeks of sweat, guts and glory (i.e. practice), the intrepid trio went live. Now, after one year together, two demos recorded by Mikey from the Juke Joint 45s and opening for such bands as Mad Sin from Germany in Las Vegas, the band is ready to blossom into a new beast: drummer Ethan Anderson is leaving the band after Localized, his last show with the Saints. "The amazing thing about the Mad Sin show was that not only was it well attended, full of energy, and quite a rush to play with them, the guys from Mad Sin were really nice, swell guys–not to mention that this was the first or second time Mad Sin had been to the states."
When asked about the split, Brad commented by saying that "the split was amicable and that Ethan has left to pursue music in a more punk vein, à la the Clash. Ethan is really into music that is more punk that psychobilly."
But fear not, because a good time will be had at the Hellbound Saints' last show with their original drummer! Blood will be spat, dancing will be had, and the Saints will put the "psyensational" back in psychobilly.
