A loud and noisy indie rock band, as the term was used back when it had more to do with punk and raw rock and roll and less to do with bland pop, precision, and clean production. We borrow elements from previous Denver-based bands we’ve played in through the years (the Emirs, Acrobat Down, O’er the Ramparts, El Espectro, Blastoff Heads, DeNunzio, Brougham Royale, etc.). Glasses, grey hair, beer and tight pants….well, tight waistbands. What we got truly epitomizes Rock and Roll.
Blood Boilers are performing at Illegal Pete’s South Broadway this Friday, May 9, so we asked them a few questions.
If someone were to buy you a drink at your Illegal Pete’s show, what should that drink be?
Tonic tappers with a beer back.
What is your craziest experience with the band?
Serving a month long fellowship with Sammy Hagar down in Cabo. We thought it was going to be an opportunity to refine our musical craft with one of the all time greats, but it turned into a non-stop blur of tequila, racing lambos, questionable outfits, ringing ears, and heart burn. Somehow when we emerged from the fog, we had a recording of the songs that now comprise our setlist. Thanks Sammy….
Lurve – Bryon Parker and Aaron Betcher
Hate – All members of the fleece vest army that seems to be closing in on us all.
Bad ass – Danny Trejo
What is one song that influences your songwriting?
Taking It To The Streets by the Doobie Brothers
This songs speaks to the every man, which is who we are and what our music embodies.
When you go to Illegal Pete’s, what do you order?
Big Fish Burrito – Magnificent!
