Cleveland’s Archie and the Bunkers are definitely something unique. Unique in a good way, not like how your eighth grade English teacher described your poetry about “living in a purple sea of sorrow.”
Brothers Emmett & Cullen O’Connor draw influence from jazz organ and punk icons like the Dead Boys and Iggy Pop. Their organ & drum style is best described as “hi-fi organ punk.” They’ve played with greats such as the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Iggy Pop himself.
Archie and the Bunkers are gearing up for their sophomore album, “Songs From the Lodge,” which is slated to be released on April 20th via Dirty Water Records. Their record release show will be April 28th in Lakewood, Ohio, at Mahall’s.
