Peelander-Z
Peelander-Z
PEELANDER-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in NYC, was originally formed in 1998 by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red, and Peelander-Blue, after meeting in New York City (although they'll tell you they're all from the Z area on the planet Peelander). Peelander-Green was welcomed in July 2008 after Blue left the band.

Peelander–Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour and has also been featured on TV programs such as VH1's "Best Week Ever" and Comedy Central's "Upright Citizens Brigade" among others. The band has also been covered by SPIN, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, NPR and The Onion among many others.

At its live shows, Peelander–Z guarantees intense audience participation and a chance to exercise. You'll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese anime, though they describe their outfits as their skin. You'll also see The Red Squid, human bowling and all around insanity. A Peelander–Z performance is a rare occasion for the entire family to rock out and have a great time.

The Youthful Nothings
The Youthful Nothings
Once upon a time there was Jack. Jack was a scientist and because of his unique ways of experimentation, was completely disregarded by his all of his colleagues. All Jack wanted to do was play drums in a punk rock band but no one would jam with him due to his horrible reputation in his field.
Fed up with humanity, Jack genetically altered the grungiest and grooviest animals: a rat and panda, into musically trained kind of guys.

It kinda went like this:
"Weed, music, and everything free. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little band. But Jack the Scientist accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction -- Chemical X.
Thus, The Youthful Nothings were born! Using their ultra-music powers, Tommy Rat, Groovy Panda, and Jack the Scientist have dedicated their lives to fighting crime and the forces of evil!"

The Youthful Nothings toured the country but because of Jack's bad reputation, and the fact that most venues thought they were joking and told them to fuck off, they had to play house shows most of their tour. TYN garnered an underground fan base very quickly due to their unique band members and was able to tour underground, do-it-yourself styled venues year round whenever they pleased. To make money, Jack would invent things and sell them in the black market. This form of employment supplied the band with enough money to buy new equipment and tour whenever they pleased.

One day, while conducting a secret experiment to find out what really happened to the dinosaurs, Jack discovered the secret to why they really died: an alien was running from intergalactic space police when it collided with a giant asteroid, sending the asteroid and the spaceship hurdling towards earth at an unstoppable speed. The alien's spaceship hit the surface first, burring this alien in hundreds of miles inside the earth. The asteroid hit moments later, with such an impact that it killed the dinosaurs. The alien was frozen in time and buried beneath the rubble of its collision.
