THE PIGGIES • SUPER SCENICS
There’s a shortage of no-frills rock'n'roll these days, but Blockhouses are keeping the flame alive. The New York City trio recreate the time-honored tradition of classic rock'n'roll — following the thread that connects the early rock'n'roll of Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry to the seminal ‘70s punk of the Ramones to the garage-pop renaissance of today. It’s all about great songs with catchy choruses, lyrics that people relate to, and live punk-rock energy. The band came together in 2013 after singer-guitarist Guy Lyons — a pivotal member of the Figgs back when the hooky, brash power-pop band was on Capitol Records — pledged a return to rock'n'roll. Looking to carry the torch for bare-knuckle, sing-along rock, he joined forces with bassist Christopher Peifer (the Kowalskis) and drummer Bill Wolf (Wolfhaven), and Blockhouses were born.
