FLATBED have been wiping Nanaimo, BC, off the face of the map for about 15 years now. They’re the bastard brainchild of a guy named Mike Thibodeau who plays a two-stringed bass, comes up with the song titles, and is the only permanent member. Past members have included guitarists Andrew MacGregor (The Bark Haze, Gown), Ken Holiday (The Crusties, Void Fill) and Jakob Rehlinger (Void Fill, Semen Priest, etc) but you don’t join FLATBED for the long haul, you join to spill bile all over the stage for 15 minutes and get the hell out, leaving behind blown eardrums and stunned faces. There’s new guys on guitar now, they’re called Shrum and Jub. On drums Lindsay (Bash Brothers, Hag Face) is the fourth lady to beat the hell out of the skins for FLATBED. Drug Mom is their sixth release.
