Vicky Speedboat, the two-piece punk rock outfit from Philadelphia, is the drunken creative brainchild of Sean Huber (Modern Baseball, Steady Hands) and Will Lindsay (W. C. Lindsay, Steady Hands). Their songs are allegories of the road, tales of restlessness and staying on the run. Bathed in feedback, contrasts of intoxicating glee and gut wrenching loss span their debut EP Two Years No Basement. The EP was written across the map and recorded in 2015 at Kennedy Studios in Burlington, MA by Steve Aliperta and Chris LaRoque (The Color and Sound).
The band’s sound, reminiscent of a bygone era, is defined by their high-energy aggressivepunk instrumentation mixed seamlessly with their character driven lyricism. Lindsay provides loud, harshly distorted but melodic guitars, fitting seamlessly with the bombastic and aggressive drumming of Huber. Both members act as vocalists and story-tellers.

Vicky Speedboat play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Tue 2nd May 2017, with support from Fullshore, All The Rest and Insomniacs. Tickets available here.
