Straight from the city of Cleveland, OH, Archie and The Bunkers consists of brothers Emmett (drums/vocals) and Cullen O'Connor (organ/vocals). The pair began recording music in their basement as young teenagers self-producing their first two EPs (Comrade X in 2013, and Trade Winds in 2014.) The band's raw garage-punk sound draws heavily from their melding of divergent musical styles. Influences range from jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, and Richard "Groove" Holmes, to punk icons Dead Boys, The Stooges, The Screamers, and more. Emmett describes the duo's sound as, "rock 'n 'roll that's been peeled back to it's raw foundation." 2015 marked the release of their first full-length on Dirty Water Records. Since then, the rustbelters have embarked on two European tours, recorded four singles, two EPs, and sophomore LP, Songs From The Lodge featuring "She's A Rockin Machine," "You're My Pacemaker," and more.
