If rock n’ roll is looked at as a young man’s game, then believers in that theory have never encountered West Memphis Suicide. Featuring Chris Raposo (vocals, guitar), Barry Martin (guitar), Paul Oliver (bass) and Chris Spiers (drums), WMS may all be in their 30’s now, but understand that while they may be competing against the younger, spiky-haired, pretentiously promoted record company acts of today, they have two things many of those bands lack – honesty and experience.
Born in 2007 out of the ashes of previous rock acts Tudisco and The Hang,and Brother My Enemy, this Cambridge, Ontario quartet of tattooed, hard-blues playin’, amplifier assassins are taking these years of musical experiences, and packaging it all together to give listeners a band that they can feel connected to. To make this happen, WMS take pride in giving audiences a thoroughly bashing, in-your-face, live set of tracks that take on a Grady-meets-Pantera vibe, all the while not being afraid to cheers beers with listeners once the final note is played.
