as the illegitimate brats of the Ramones, the Loudmouths were born into
the punk rock world with a predestined disposition for blowin' eardrums
with their three-chord rock'n'roll at a chainsaw volume. These three delinquents
literally grew up at the front of shows while collecting punk rock, metal,
garage, rockabilly, surf and good old rock'n'roll vinyl along the way.
It was out of pure devotion to rock'n'roll, the lust for a good time,
and the desire to do-it-yourself that the Loudmouths formed and the rest
is punk rock history.

Ex-members of the old Seattle/S.F. punk rock band the LEWD, Bob Clic (guitar) and Sats (vocals), teamed up with The Loudmouths during summer '99 to play LEWD songs. There were only two shows. The first show was on August 21, 1999 at El Rio in San Francisco and was a drunk punk rock night to remember! The second and last show was in September 1999 at the Cocodrie Club in San Francisco. Because they had so much fun and the response was so great, Bob Clic and Sats decided to reform the Lewd with new permanent members (us Loudmouths just didn't have the time for anything more than the two shows.) which now includes Bob's son Steve on 2nd guitar! They've released a 7" on 702 Records (two old Lewd songs, plus a cover of the Loudmouth's "Rough House"). Lewdmouths pix below by icky, click to enlarge. (Best viewed in Explorer.)
