Crackhead Motor Inn
In the spring of 2005, Nicky Dumps and Brian McLaughlin met while working at a hat factory located in Maspeth Queens NY. The two of them would soon discover that they were both working class kids from the neighborhood trying to make ends meat and they shared similar taste in music. The two started jamming in the basement of Nicky Dumps' home. These early jam sessions formed the skeletal structure of what Dump Body has now become. Scrounging up whatever neighborhood musicians they could to join the band, Dump Body started playing local basement shows around the Maspeth area. These shows are what opened the floodgates to a never-ending battle to fulfill the Dump Body legacy. In and out of members, the two decided to book a real show at a local club known as The Redzone. Two days before the show the drummer at the time had quit. High school delinquent and long-time friend of Nicks, Jesse Carfagno, agreed to learn the songs and play the show on drums. Acquaintance at the time and known neighborhood rapper, E-BIZ, was eager to work with Dump Body after catching them at one of the basement parties. He agreed to take the opportunity to rock out for the two days and perform the show as Dump Body'S front man. The four of them found local musician Kiris who fell in love with the grungy sound of Dump Body; and what she would add to it was her colorful melodies and thunder bass to help and complete the project. They played the show in 2 days of time and never looked back. The lineup and the product were finally together! Without hesitation Dump Body played shows constantly. Meeting and networking with various bands and people. They found Charles Cudd of Dead Emotion and recorded "The Basement Demo 06." Over the last 3 years Dump Body has worked tirelessly at molding and defining the gritty, working class sound that provides intimate glimpses into the lives of the band. Now stronger than ever, the band has played shows all over the NYC area including the Knitting Factory, Ace of Clubs, The Continental, Don Hills, Crash Mansion, and many more. Their electrifying live shows combine the passion of rock, the fury of punk and the flow of hip-hop. In the fall of 2007, Billy Graziadie (Biohazard/ Suicide City) was impressed by Dump Body'S sound, he noticed a sparkle within the group and agreed to produce and engineer their E.P entitled "The Crackhead Motor Inn." Dump Body recorded the 6 song album with Billy from December 07 to March 08, to be released on September 6, 2008. Dump Body, a once incomplete basement band of Queens NY, has never looked back and continues to bring their undying passion to every performance; Dump Body is the perfect example of dreams coming true...
