Choke City

Starting as a quarantine project, old friends Matt Gordon (Helen of Troy, Kaiju Daisenso, The State Secedes) Lou Koster (Bona Roba) and Mike Ciasullo (52X, The Last Crime), virtually made a 4 song EP rooted in NYC rock n roll/Proto Punk music and it quickly became a serious project. Together they created 4 gritty songs that resonate with old school punks as well as hardcore fans. Mixed and mastered by Don Fury, this EP has a lo fi retro feel for fans of The Stooges, Dead Boys, and The NY Dolls. Tim Wyskida (Khanate, Blind idiot god) sits in on drums (drums were recorded by Martin Bisi) while Julian Vasquez (Stillsuit) does guest vocals on the track Up in Flames.
