Senior Citizens & an Evil Teen – 9353

9353-bandpic-00

No it’s not The 4 Freshmen, not some 50’s Doo-wop group… it’s Washington D.C.’s 9353 hamming it up… Psychotic psychedelic rockers… art damaged punk rockers… progressive rockers? Any or all of the preceding? I’ll let you be the judge.

Formed in 1982 – 1983 the band broke up by 1986, leaving behind two LPs, 1983’s “To Whom it May Consume“; re-released on the “Overdoses At Your Mother’s House” CD in 1993, with bonus tracks and 1986’s “We Are Absolutely Sure There Is No God“, re-released on the “Make Your Last Days Loud Days” CD in 1993, with bonus tracks.

A 1993 LP “UFOs sideswiped our reform school bus, that’s why we’re early, mom, they didn’t want us to tell” contains extra tracks from the two 1993 cd releases.

While their recorded output maybe slight what the group (Band members: (Left to Right) Vance Bocknis: Bass, Vocals, Jason Carmer: Guitar, Synthesizer, Dan Joseph: Drums and ‘stuff’ and Bruce Merkle: Vocals and Lyrics) did leave us can only be called “unique “… to say the least.

  1. Is there any way you could repost the 9353? Especially Make Your Last Days Loud Days? that would be amazing. Thanks.

  2. I’ve re-posted this by request last week. Check my latest post entiltled Re-post #3. As far a shot shot D.C. guitarists I’ll take your word on it regarding the abilities of both Jason C. and Lou Gigger.

  3. Vance is still alive! He’s back playing with 9353 and they just played at the 9:30 last night. Send me some contact information and I’ll forward it to Vance.

  4. Thank you! But Vance and I hooked up over the phone a couple of month’s ago…He told me that 9353 was getting back together. At the time, he didn’t have email…if he has one now, please forward mine. How deep south will they perform??? I live in Alabama.

  5. 9353 played live in DC 4 times in 2007-2008! 3 of which were 9:30 club headlining gigs! Vance even played 3 of them! Sounded perfect as the live recordings prove. And 5 minutes later it was like it never even happened!
