I Rock Cleveland: Archie and the Bunkers
Even with all of the millions of dollars spent by tech companies across the globe on music discovery, old-fashioned, word-of-mouth recommendations can still propel bands in the underground. Case in point, Cleveland’s upstart, garage rock duo, Archie and The Bunkers. For the past year, those in the know have been prodding 216 scenesters to see this band. You have to see this band. Brothers Emmett (drums/vocals) and Cullen O’Connor (keys/vocals) aren’t old enough to drive their own tour van, and still, own the rawest rock sound in town. Imagine how a young Jack White howled in the White Stripes. Go even further back to the ’70s punk rock explosion when loud and fast became a way of life. These brothers earned their reputation and that word of mouth spread all the way to England, where Dirty Water records will be releasing their new LP.
