Pinhead Gunpowder

Pinhead Gunpowder began in 1990. It is named after a type of green tea. It includes two band members from Green Day, the singer and guitar player Billie Joe and the touring guitarist Jason White. It would be easy to label "Pinhead Gunpowder" as a super group considering that the line up features four players from other well known bands. There's drummer Arron Cometbus formerly of Crimpshrine, Billie Joe of Green Day on guitar/ vocals, Bill from Monsula on bass/ vocals and Mike from Fuel on guitar.

Pinhead Gunpowder began in 1990. It is named after a type of green tea. It includes two band members from Green Day, the singer and guitar player Billie Joe and the touring guitarist Jason White. It would be easy to label "Pinhead Gunpowder" as a super group considering that the line up features four players from other well known bands. There's drummer Arron Cometbus formerly of Crimpshrine, Billie Joe of Green Day on guitar/ vocals, Bill from Monsula on bass/ vocals and Mike from Fuel on guitar. Not that these guys got together for the intentions of making money or to be the ultimate scenester band, but rather to take a break from their main musical projects that occupy most of their time. There's no pressure involved, no regrets, no touring ; Pinhead Gunpowder are to have fun and relive the days of being just a garage band. With down on your luck lyrics on day to day life fueled with fast, vigorous pop-punk, 1991 through 1993 saw a slew of EP's and compilation tracks on various labels. Eventually, Lookout Records would re-release all this material on the "Jump Salty" CD in 1994. Maintaining the integrity of getting together only on an occasional basis, the EP "Carry the Banner" was released the following year only this time with Jason from Chino Horde to replace Mike on guitar duties.

In 1996, this line up would continue with the release of their first official full length entitled "Goodbye Ellston Avenue." Three years later the follow up "Shoot The Moon" was released on Adeline Records. « hide
