My name is Andy the Doorbum. I have been making music for over 10 years as well as making visual art, writing zines, working at the World Famous Milestone Club for six years, touring extensively, making my own merchandise, and preparing for the apocalypse. I’ve recorded four EPs and four full-lengths that have never seen the light of day and have released three splits, one EP, a cassette tape, and three full length albums. I’ve also contributed to several compilations including Another Merrie Kinnikinnik, the Shuffle Magazine Valentine’s Comp, and Piedmont Hellstompers. I’ve taken part in some art showings, the release of and contribution to numerous written publications (poetry and prose), and a handful of video projects along the way, as well. I’ve been touring consistently for five years with this project throughout the East Coast and Midwest regions of the U.S. and did a small European tour in May of 2008. My show history has consisted of playing anywhere possible, from dance recitals to library openings, barns, baby showers, basements, skate parks, and Italian Heritage Festivals. From events as small as house shows, to a World Music Festival attended by 3000+ people (performing as a member of Etran Finatwa from Nigeria). I’ve toured with and also been a member of Cryptorchid Chipmunk, The Emotron, PPR, 2013 Wolves, Morbid Toothbrush, FleshHouse, IYF PoRK, Pangolin Wasser, and Appalucia (and I recently collaborated on a recording with Mack Johansson (from Sweden) of the group Hyacinth House). Alongside these endeavors I’ve been actively recording my own projects, as well as several other bands, and I’ve done it all with the help of a few good friends and very little money. I can also start a fire using nothing but sticks and some string.. ….Thank you all from the bottom of my doorbum heart for the support that you have given me!
