Authority Zero is a punk rock band from Mesa, Arizona. The band's style is rooted in reggae and skate punk, with Bad Religion, Pennywise, and Sublime cited as heavy influences. There is an obvious Spanish/Portuguese influence in the band's music as well. Authority Zero was started in 1994 and consisted of two guitarists Bill Marcks, Jerry Douglas (also performing vocals) and drummer J.W. Gordon, all from Westwood High School. This trio put a few songs together without lyrics or basslines until the summer of 1995. When that summer rolled around, Douglas was expecting the yearly visit of his friend Jason DeVore, from Wyoming. Douglas introduced his long-time friend to Marcks who jokingly asked if he wanted to be their singer. Soon after, it became more than just a joke.


The Knights have been hard at work in the windowless lair known as "The Soundlab" creating a hefty batch of songs, fine tuning them, jamming them out and fine tuning them some more. After much fuss and plenty of rocking out, they are finally puting the pedal to the metal. Their no frills, skate punk influenced sound guarantees to get you moving and your feet tapping.
This band has only one rule: giv'er as hard as you can because you don't get a second chance to make up for the ones you've already blown. With a high energy live show and sing along vocal hooks, get ready to "Finish Last" and love every second of it!


Slush was formed in 1992 in New Liskeard after Adam Leggett and Jamie Weatherbie decided to stop playing in a cheesy rock band and decided to start our own band . We managed to convince our other buddy Martin Woodyatt to join the band and we were a certified 3 piece band with Jamie on Drums , Adam on Vocals and guitar and Martin on lead guitar , after a few failed band names like ( False wooden legs or the raging tornadoes ) we decided Slush was the right fit for our band as we loved Slush riding on our snowboards in northern Ontario
