Spawned from the aftermath of radioactive motor oil being spilled on a Robert Johnson record, Jaw Knee Vee (aka Johnny Vichich) is the definition of a one-man-band. Self described as “deep-fried trash blues,” Vichich creates a chaotic, yet hip-shaking, blend of blues and punk that pulls the audience in for a fully immersive experience. His band mates consist of duct-taped microphones, a distorted slide-guitar and a kick drum attached to various things you’d find in a garage — and that’s all he needs to get people dancing as he howls out his reverbed vocals. With three self-released albums out, this is Jaw Knee Vee’s first official Homegrown appearance.
