The Generics was hatched and let loose to infect the world about 10 months ago . Due to boredom in their habitat of Orange County and a few failed attempts at becoming mad scientists with evil plots to take over the world , they decided to form a rock band originally going by the name Mosquito ,changing the name to The Generics after finding another band called that as well as Sonic Youths and Smells Like Records own Steve Shelley had a supergroup called that and challenged them to a wrestling match for using the name.Just Kidding .
The Generics is made up of 3 18 year old teenagers .Nigel plays guitar and does a lot of screaming .Sashelle plays bass and breaks lots of strings. Kim plays drums and is a karate expert.
Nigel sings funny , dark , loud , fast, and romantic songs about religion, love, angst, politics, tonka toys, lifes troubles and personal experiences.
Onstage he is like a mad Fabio from Orange County that lost his car keys and needs to use the restroom.
While the rhythm section of Kim and Sashelle looks like porcelain dolls that came to life to make havoc and create mischief.
If you took the White Stripes, The Kills, Smashing Pumpkins, Mudhoney,Nirvana,
and Wire and mixed with ice in a blender, you wouldn’t have a great mixed drink
but instead The Generics sound on the rocks.
The Generics are constantly writing new material and changing their sounds.
A few influences besides the ones mentioned are The Cramps, Circle Jerks, Crime, Don Ho, Hazil Adkins , The Fall , Soundgarden , Pavement, Xtc , ABC, Black Sabbath , Radiohead , Germs, Menudo , Chavez, Pearl Jam and too many to mention. They sound nothing like their influences .
Their first show was on KXLU FM in Los Angeles last March. Since then , they have played at Hogue Barmichaels , AAA Elecktra , and opened up for William Tell of Something Corporate at the Galaxy and other venues in Orange County .
When not making plans to take over the air-waves , The Generics enjoys camping, shopping for vintage gear, buying records at Vinyl Solution in Huntington Beach and eating Mexican food at Fiesta Grill Mexican in Huntington Beach. They also love pizza !
They recorded a demo on a very limited budget of $50 and it will have to do for now until K-Tel or another good label offers them creative control and a beauty spa membership.
Soon you will find comic books, playing cards, sweat socks ,wristbands ,shirts,headbands,and Frisbees with the Mosquito logo on it for sale.
PS looking for fire-eaters ,sword swollowers ,midgets,jugglers,lego architects , magicians, and freaks for stage shows.
