For those unfamiliar, LOW CULTURE features members of SHANG-A-LANG and MARKED MEN, and could be described as splitting the sonic difference between the 2. Scrappy, melodic, and somtimes jangly garagepunk that is fast, catchy, and high-energy –as-hell, but also maintains a thoughtful vibe throughout. Since releasing their debut LP, "Screens", which quickly sold out and was generally well-received by just about everyone, a lot of has been going on in LOW CULTURE's world. 3/4ths of the band has relocated from Las Cruces, NM to Portland, OR, with the 4/4th soon to follow. They've released 7”s on Dirtnap, Dead Broke, and La-Ti-Da Records. They found a new bass player in Chicago transplant Jay Castaldi (MOTO, Lynyrd’s Innards, more). ½ of the band has helped form killer local hardcore band MACHO BOYS. Singer/Guitarist Chris Mason has released tons of essential records on his great (and easy to confuse with Dirtnap!) Dirt Cult Records label.
