Ty CobbTattooed thrashers Cody Paulson, Ben Butter, Jay Benson and Mike Ferrin have played the past five Homegrowns in other regional metal groups like Bear Garden, Lament of Aporia, Voyages, Books on Tape, Wyatt Famous, the Moon is Down and so on. Joined together under the name of baseball’s famous anti-hero, the band Ty Cobb extols the virtues of beer, bud, whiskey and maybe a skate park with some Slurpees. The release of the forthcoming album Gang Violence has been postponed due to some hang-ups, but is still a work in progress.
