Gotham City Mashers

About Gotham City Mashers: Gotham City Mashers were formed in 2009 in Astoria, Queens by four longtime friends who wanted to make music like the bands they grew up idolizing: loud, loose and fun. "Mashing" is both a term for riding a brakeless track bike on city streets and part of the beer brewing process. Since singer Will Vallar is an avid track cyclist and bassist Tom Guinan is a skilled home brewer, the name seemed natural. Gotham City Mashers sounded like a gang straight out of The Warriors, the band's favorite movie. So the choice of a band logo was obvious. All of the band's artwork is drawn by drummer Tim Guinan. GCM attempts to combine the down-picked guitar and melodies of The Misfits and Ramones, the energy of Op Ivy, the fun of Murphy's Law, and the occasional dropped D riffing of Helmet and Quicksand. Guitarist Joe O'Connell is a drill sergeant for keeping their songs short and focused. All members contribute to writing and arranging the music. The band has wowed crowds at Suburbia Roller Derby, and been gigging regularly in NYC. Their song "Packed" is featured on the official Warriors fan club site. 5 songs are currently in rotation at Hussieskunk Radio. They are working on their first full-length album, due out in early 2011. For more information, music, photos, or interviews contact the band at: gothamcitymashers@gmail.com
