Hot Damn Scandal
Hot Damn Scandal started as an attempt to create a more tolerable ratio of drum circles to folk music at the Rainbow Gathering in Wyoming during the summer of 2008. Armed with the rather embarrassing moniker “Gypsy Shit” Stinky Pete Irving and the band’s co-founder Jesse Carlson played a few tunes with a few other musicians, and split ways. Two months later, on August 30th, Jesse showed up with a van full of musicians and abducted Pete for his 19th birthday. After roaming the Northeastern United States for a few more months the band settled on the current name, shifted around the musical line-up a few times, and set out to the south to eventually record an album. Since those early days of sleeping under bridges and in vans, drinking too much (just enough?), and finding a way into every dingy bar in the country the band has gone through quite a lot. Pete has been the only constant member so far (and even that’s debatable), joined for a while by his then wife Charlie Baby, sometimes taking up short residence in places like (but not limited to) Massachusets, Alabama, Georgia, Maine, and California. He’s since found his way to Bellingham Washington, and met up with Harper Stone, Chandra Johnson, Jimmy Austin, Sarah Covert-Bowlds, and Mickey Stylin. The band has evolved from heartfelt words, big dreams, and bad habits to a couple-few bonuine, genafide mujicians proudly calling Cascadia their home.
