ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1994... Seattle and Grunge were huge in the music scene, but Seattle band the Berserkers refused to hop aboard the gravy train and instead wowed the crowds in the underground scene with their brand of Motorhead-influenced metallic punk rock. The Berserkers were: Johnny D on vocals, Paul Diamond Blow on guitar, Markass Karkass on bass, Rick Dorgan on the drums. The Berserkers played the Seattle punk rock circuit from 1993 to 1995, briefly reunited in 1998, and played such notable Seattle clubs as the Off Ramp, the Lake Union Pub, the Storeroom Tavern, Moe's Hard Rock Cafe, and the Rock Candy. The Berserkers big "hit" was the song "Whiskey & Leather," a punk rock anthem which became the unofficial "Eastlake Avenue song" and has been covered by numerous Seattle bands throughout the years. "Whiskey & Leather" was originally released as a 7" slab of vinyl in 1994 with "Never To Die" on the B-side. Now, 17 years later, Killing Pig Records is releasing the songs digitally as a digital EP. The other songs on this EP collection were originally released in 1994 as the Berserkers demo cassette tape. All songs were recorded by in 1994 by "Greedy Greg" at the infamous Ranch recording studio which at the time lay beneath the equally infamous Storeroom Tavern.

The Berserkers played their last show in 1998 but Paul Diamond Blow and Markass Karkass joined forces again in 2004 in the punk/glam band SPACE CRETINS. Johnny D. and Karkass played together again in punk band Brewtal Thirst in 2010. Paul Diamond Blow currently performs as a solo artist.

Maximum Rock'n'Roll review (1994)
Hot rodding fat daddies. This here disc is full-on thick neck. Wang dang sweet thunder of rock. Two total headbangers, a taste of MOTORHEAD/DEEP PURPLE with a dash of Fast & Loud thrown in. I loved this classic butcher shop metal tunage.
