Teenage Bottlerocket

Following the dissolution of Laramie, WY, pop-punks the Lillingtons, vocalist/guitarist Kody Templeman was hardly done with music, moving on to form the similarly minded Teenage Bottlerocket, another group of rambunctious, Ramones and Screeching Weasel-loving punks.

Templeman was joined by guitarist Joel Pattinson and identical twin brothers Ray (vocals/bass) and Brandon Carlisle (drums). Recording over at Fort Collins' the Blasting Room, the guys released their debut full-length, Total, in March 2005 through San Francisco-based Red Scare (the same label that later issued some Lillingtons records). The super-charged album was enthusiastically embraced by fans, and a bunch of touring followed, both home and abroad, including dates with the Groovie Ghoulies and summer 2006 shows with the Epoxies. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi
