Band Question - Band Members:
The Children of Warhol are less an actual musical band and more of an artistic concept. Nevertheless the practical application of the Nomad's theories are embodied by the blood & guts of Rob Kuch who plays guitar, Abner Sankofa who tears up the bass, and Giggles X who brings it all home on the drums. Their original songs accompany the Nomad Junkie's poetic ruminations on the gentrification and destruction of New York City & its diverse, spunky, working class culture.
Band Question - Sounds like:
Us.
Band Question - Musical Influences:
nspired by the Dead Kennedys, Death, Bad Brains, Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Damned, Living Colour, the plays of Eric Bogosian, and Laurie Anderson's 1983 album "Big Science
Band Question - Record label:
DIY, Self-Distro
