Album Notes
Squid Vicious first surfaced in Austin, Texas, in 1995 and has been creating strange and enticing signals ever since.
The powerful aural waves flow forth from the rhythms of crafty percussionist Adam Smasher Byram and artfully intertwine with the melodic styling of Bass Playin' Ben Howard. The hooks are cast and all of the right spaces filled in fluidly by Ted James, King of the Squid Guitar.

The music is varied and the influences include surf, space rock, punk, and spaghetti western. The listener is propelled from the deep abyss to the infinite and back with stops at any point in between. The mind opens and moods are created.

Squid Vicious surfaces at unpredictable times and is occasionally captured on various recording media, sometimes falling into the hands of music lovers across the seven seas. Watch for their next appearance in your town, and bring your imagination. Squid Vicious will supply the soundtrack.

Currently, Squid Vicious can be heard on various indie compilations as well as a 7" single and their first full length CD At War with the Whale on Austin's Deep Eddy Records.
