The Screws

The Screws are perhaps the punkest of all the Mick Collins projects. While retaining the blues/garage/soul/R&B influences he's known for, the Screws have a harsher and more aggressive sound.
Back in 1997, the Red Aunts (then on Epitaph) went to Detroit to record Ghetto Blaster with Mick Collins as their producer. As a lark, the Aunts decided to have Collins record a duet with vocalist/guitarist Terri Wahl, planting the idea for the Screws into their respective heads. Collins and Wahl called upon Dan Brown and Marty Moore, a pre-fab rhythm section, who they knew from their work with '68 Comeback and Royal Trux. The Screws have remained primarily a side project, although they have toured to places as far away as Japan. In the Red released Hate Filled Classics in 1999 and their follow-up, Shake Your Monkey, in 2001.

The Dead Brothers

The Dead Brothers describe themselves as “Death Swamp Blues”.
The Dead Brothers is more or less what’s left of a symphony orchestra after their car crashed today. Some heavy metal wind instruments (tubas, trombones and bass saxophone) a megaphone and a top hat, a nasty french accordion and some sweet lap steel country. Bringing rock’n’roll back to Europe by exploring the musical roots that led to its birth or what would the european music that led to rock’n’roll, sound like today? They make Satie rhyme with the Birthday Party, and the Saints singing Besame Mucho. They’re a macabre rock’n’roll party and an old fashioned wedding at the same time. Need your sense of humour when they stage gruesome deaths singing Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. The Cramps wrote they liked their rendering of Human Fly. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Tom Waits got their records. Thomas Wydler of the Bad Seeds says their Tod Von Basel penned in the 16th century sounds pretty nasty. Toured tons with Bob Log III and England with T-Model Ford the tale dragger from Greenville, and they know personally the Reverend Beat-man himself. They are fans of the Kift, famous dutch surrealist jazz family. The Dead Brothers sing blues tunes out of ancient Europe (Totentanz) and famous cajun-core french swingh from Bombay. They’ve been called "The Best Funeral Orchestra" along with tubas and electric guitar and the most bizarre act to have appeared in Europe. Felt at home in Russia, but go as much as possible to the swiss mountains. Some say they are paradoxal.
