Party Battleship
Party Battleship
Party Battleship is 100 years old.

Collectively, that is.
The seasoned foursome’s combined playing and recording experiences do add up to that. We have all been at it since our teens or twenties, and are now all in our forties. We’d like to think we are the coolest middle-aged band in Charlotte.

Together, we make a sound devoted to elements of rock, new wave, punk, and post-punk, big on guitars, melody, and harmony. Experience here translates into force: our songs describe the coordinates of idiosyncratic lives and emotional perspectives, nested within a powerful, 100% rock-and-roll framework.

Here’s more info on each of us:

Donnie Merritt is a talented musician and visual artist, in addition to playing drums and percussion and singing in PB. He has been in Lodestar, Mighty Pro-jet. Tyre Fyre, and recently Mark Crozer and the Rels.

John Morris is a Charlotte staple, a renowned arranger, and a veteran of the 90’s rock bands Come on Thunderchild, Electrolux, the cover band Nitehawk, the venerable Snagglepuss (how he met Shalini) and his own band Tyre Fyre, who released “Let it Burn” in 2004. He is a singer, songwriter, arranger, driving force, and multi-instrumentalist in PB.

Shalini Morris started playing out in 1987 with Kissyfish, peers of the Onion founders in Madison WI. She has appeared as a guest musician on Game Theory and Loud Family releases, and played in incarnations of Mitch Easter’s various bands (2002 – 2010). She had her own band Vinyl Devotion from 1994-1999, releasing an EP and LP on Widely Distributed Recs and Parasol, respectively. She went on to form the “Shalini” combo with full length releases on the Parasol, Dalloway, and Paisley Pop records labels. She plays guitar in PB and is the primary songwriter. This is her eighth commercial release.

Adam Roth has played in: Bellglide, recording and playing extensively, and also Catch Fire, and recently Mark Crozer and the Rels. He plays bass and sings in PB.

Look for Party Battleship’s debut full-length, “Cake + Flames”, available on BandCamp and disc March 10th, 2017.
The-Eyebrows
The-Eyebrows
The-Eyebrows got their name from a Frank Zappa quote where the subversive genius was describing what separates some songs from the rest: “The computer can’t tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what’s missing is the eyebrows.”

The-Eyebrows’ songs are far from Zappa’s work, and reside more along the lines of quirky rock being compared to Talking Heads, Foxy Shazam, The B-52s, Pylon, REM and Devo, and at other times living in the atmosphere one would expect from The Cramps.

The band consists of long-time pals Jay Garrigan (vocals, guitar) and Shawn Lynch (“drummist”, vocals) along with cohorts Molly Poe (synths) and Jon Lock (bass). Jay and Shawn are also members of Temperance League (keys/bass and guitar, respectively), and have been playing together since 2000 with their bands Poprocket and Garrigan. Jay met Jon Lock (also of The Bleeps) in 2015 as they were asked to be house musicians for a local benefit gig, and clicked soon after Jon realized “Jay’s songs don’t suck.” Jay also recruited their favorite bartender Molly Poe to play keys… or maybe Molly recruited Jay.

The-Eyebrows have finished tracking their first record, and are currently mixing with legendary REM producer Mitch Easter at his Fidelitorium sound studio. Two tracks have been mastered by Greg Calbi out of Sterling Sound in NYC, and these two songs are currently being prepared for the band’s first 7” release while Jay and Mitch are mixing songs for their upcoming full-length album.
