Based in Washington, DC, Apollo 66 plays original, yet primitive garage punk trash rock 'n' roll made to help you forget about the coming apocalypse, and stomp your feet, clap your hands, and shout "Wooo!" Apollo 66 takes its name and inspiration from the images and themes of the space race and westward expansion, both of which capture the innate curiosity of human beings, the desire to compete and dominate and the infinite sadness wrapped up in the realization of said desires. They also lend themselves to some pretty cool visuals.
Brought together through the random happenstance of geography, a love of skateboarding, art and all things Fugazi, Apollo 66’ music fits somewhere in the space-time-continuum of the Sonics, the Cramps, Gun Club, Misfits, Dick Dale and Link Wray and all the great music that came before and after it (although with considerably less talent and professionalism, but with just enough enthusiasm to make it work).
