The much maligned and misunderstood Pachinko, just want you to know that all the rumors about them pummeling and beating up people everywhere they go are just dirty rotten lies! In fact, Pachinko are just regular 'ol guys from the Midwest. Madison, Wisconsin to be more precise. It is true that Brian, Pachinko's strapping lead singer, put a notoriously evil club promoter in the hospital (elevating him to hometown hero status!).

Pachinko have appeared on numerous seven inches on Rhetoric, Bovine and Skin Graft Records. But in the six years Pachinko have been plugging away, no one has been able to agree on their sound. "The indie rock aficionados say we're a "noise band," while most hipsters into the distorto-noise thing try to write us off as a punk band and most punk rock factions don't know what the hell to make of us," says Brian. When we at Alternative Tentacles heard their dirgy ditties, we swooned and asked them to do a seven inch right away! The end result was the Diablo en Senorita Pachinko 7" which more than sufficiently showcases their "wielding rock like it was a weapon" - talents. This was but a taste of what was to come. Their debut full length, Behind the Green Pachinko, is an eardrum-pummeling onslaught the likes of which any genre has never heard! Pachinko have been playing out with the likes of Zeni Geva and Tribe 8, and are awaiting the opportunity to damage more eardrums on tour again.

In 2000 they released their Splendor In The Ass II; Electric Boogaloo and toured Europe!

If you want to know what a thousand disgruntled U.S. postal employees sound like with guitars strapped to their tummies, don't miss Pachinko!

POWERWAGON began loud and ugly in the then funk obsessed town of Madison, WI. back in 1991 with Jeff (GREEN RIVER) on guitar and vocals, Patrick Lenling on drums, and a stinky Pollock named Dennis (Pennis) Wasielewski on bass. We modeled ourselves after MUDHONEY and NIRVANA and played a few new band nites and parties. This was short lived as Pat moved back home. Later a friend, Greg Hein (a Pharmacy major), joined after a half dozen shots of jager. We then proceded (with the help of other bands like Camel Toe and Pachinko) to seek out and destroy all funk heads and hangs (including O'cayz Corral) with our brand of loud, drunken, fuzzed-out jams. We put out a 7"on a local punk/noise label, Bovine Records, in '93 and followed with a full-length CD-LOWERLIFE FORMS- on the short lived O'cayz label, PINECONE, in '95. The next year saw a split 7" release with Iowa's EXIT, also on PINECONE. This would be the final release of PW's classic lineup as Dennis relocates to Austin,Tx. to finish his degree in mathmatics. River was recruited to play 2nd guitar for Michael Gerald's Party Machine aka KILLDOZER until the band played it's final shows called the "Fuck You We Quit" tour. Powerwagon would continue on as River moved to Milwaukee to join Heiner (a Milw. native) and returning alumni, Lenling, on bass duties, releasing another 7" on their own,Tri-Lateral/Foxy label in 2000.
