Hobosexual, Thunders of Wrath - Vinyl Release with Dirty Rugs

  • Fawcett Hall at Alma Mater 1322 Fawcett Avenue Tacoma, WA, 98402 United States (map)


Blues, stoner, garage duo from Seattle, WA.

Asked by writer Trent Moorman to describe Hobosexual’s sound, guitarist Ben Harwood summed it up as “Bearded glory… I also love the idea of the 1980s. Not necessarily the actual decade or reality of the 1980s, but more the one-liners, like when Schwarzenegger throws a steam pipe through the chest of his assailant at the end of Commando and says, ‘Let off some steam.’ That whole rhetoric, over-the-top Reaganomic banter will never be seen or heard again.”

Thunders Of Wrath

Described as "old school rules with a new-fangled yet reverent rock swagger". Others have said "refreshingly classic". To put it simply, we make rock, it's who we are what we love and what we do.

School chums Mason Flippin and Cooper Farris form the rhythm core, meeting in junior high and growing up together as musicians. Guitarist Joe Papen joins in January 2012. Tom Vekakis joins on vocals in August 2012. Jake Fouts joins on keyboards in July 2014. Ages 24-27, all born and raised in the Tacoma/Puyallup area.

We strive for a sound that is timeless, yet always in the moment... all-killer, no-filler. ROCK GROOVES.
