Rivethead was the first “real” band I was in (I was in some goofy high school bands earlier on). We formed in late 1999, released a 7″ record called City Sound Number Five (named after the practice space room the songs were written in) in 2000, released a 10″ record called The Cheap Wine of Youth in 2004, and broke up in 2005, with a few tours in the middle of all that. It was fun.

None of the records are in print right now, but I think that might change in the months to come (I’ll update this page if it does). For now, you can listen to the song 48 Doublestack (from The Cheap Wine of Youth) below, and check out an additional song at the Myspace link.

In case you were wondering, the name is a reference to the Ben Hamper book, not a person who listens to industrial music. We had no idea the latter thing even existed until years into the band, at which point it elicited a collective shrug.

This isn’t updated or anything anymore, but as mentioned above you can hear a song on it.
