NYC's Brickbats have built their sound on a solid foundation influenced by the early punk/gothic style. The music is held together by the straight-forward drumming of D.W. Friend, the distorted early rock'n'roll influenced bass work of Paul Morden, and the crooning vocal and biting guitar style of Corey Gorey. Despising all the pretensions of their mass-marketed contemporaries, The Brickbats thrift-store horror-rock is makeshift and fun, blood-soaked and sweaty. Their live shows are blasts of gooey Halloween party soundtrack from beyond the grave - drunken and dead-set on having a good time.
