Area 51 welcomes...
We are are in the process of making one hell of a 12 song record!
Area 51 has just finished a two song seven inch for legendary Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome. The band also features Chris Alaniz on drums and Jason Kottwitz on guitar from Austin's most outrageous punk band The Bulemics. Both of whom played with Sylvain Sylvain of The New York Dolls during his residency at Hotel Vegas in Austin TX.
Cheetah recorded the last unrecorded Dead Boys song "So Sad" and a brand new one for his upcoming 7" release that will be in tandem with the re-release the of The Dead Boys "Young, Loud and Snotty" record on its 40th anniversary.
Area 51 is also working with long time friend and ex-member of the iconic Chicago band MINISTRY , HB. Matthew and Howie are in the process of recording a full length record with Alex Seppasi and Justin Alvis's (formerly of Austin band "Aviateur" new project.
Howie Beno (better known as HB) is a an engineer/mixer/songwriter/producer and programmer. Most recently you will see his name on the credits for the new Blondie single, as well as the new Depeche Mode. His credits go all the way back to The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Skate Nigs.
