The Punk Group
Portland band The Punk Group are a fucking crack up. They are kind of a lo-fi, stripped down version of Devo or the Epoxies, playing '80s new wave mixed with punk. Only the band is just two guys, so the music is all keyboards and drum machine, so it leans more on the new wave side of things. Throw in silly and hilarious lyrics and a bunch of costume changes live and you've got one entertaining concept band. The band has put out oodles of music and appeared in The Expoxies' "Synthesized" video, check out The Punk Group website to hear them. This photo I took at El Corazon on January 14, 2006 when the band played a Rat City Rollergirls party.
