Nasalrod

INTERVIEW with MIKE WATT

PORTLAND MERCURY

"Nasalrod’s live performances exceed expectations, with vocalist Chairman embodying an unhinged hybrid of David Yow, Keith Morris, and Mike Patton, rarely standing still and typically hovering about four feet off the ground. The dynamic, rhythmic interplay between bassist Mandy Morgan, drummer Spit Stix (formerly of LA punk legends Fear), and guitarist Mustin Douch is easily one of the most formidable aural attacks in the city."

OREGON ARTSWATCH

"Every time we hear them play live they steal the whole damn show."

RAZORCAKE (RECORD REVIEW)

"Honestly, these cats have a sound all their own."

WILLAMETTE WEEK (RECORD REVIEW)

"Nasalrod’s new album is a fun, furious blast" 

PDX POP NOW! Festival

"Embodying the progressive, anything-goes punk rock ethos of mid-’80s bands like All, Black Flag and even Living Colour, Portland’s Nasalrod is probably the closest thing you’ll get to a bona fide first-wave art-punk revival. Their vocalist, known as Chairman, is easily the most entertaining frontman in the city."

Salem Weekly

"Mandy Morgan holds it down on a bass guitar as big as she is. Don’t let her sweet smile fool you, she’s a monster on that bass."

THE DELI MAGAZINE

"One of the most energetic acts in town."

PORTLAND MERCURY (RECORD REVIEW)

"Completely obliterates any preconceived notions about the boundaries of genre and traditional songwriting."

Weekly Volcano (Olympia, WA)

"The one thing that you need to know is that they're a lot of goddamn fun...impossibly energetic music."

The Inlander

"Nasalrod is heavy, no question about that, but that weight is offered up with a pound of fun."

VORTEX MUSIC MAGAZINE

"looks beyond the stylistic roots of punk rock while still managing to provide the sense of adventure and essential spirit that the genre originated from."

Live Music Seattle

"This band does not believe in boring; their set was dynamic, energetic, and always engaging..."

Portland Mercury (profile article)

"They're a band of musical masterminds that can't be caught..."

Willamette Week (profile article)

"Truly, Nasalrod is a group of four convivial nutcases..."
