Artist Info

The Stains

The StainsPowered by Audioscrobbler™1)The Stains (Now called "Glass Towers") are an introspective psychedelic garage rock band from Alstonville (near Byron Bay)situated on the North Coast of New South Wales. The Band consists of Ben Hannam (Guitar and Vocals), Sam Speck (Guitar), Cameron Holdstock (Bass) and Daniel Muszynski (Drums).

2)A fictional band from the 1981 cult classic film “Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains”. The Stains consisted of Diane Lane, Laura Dern, and Marin Kanter.

3)The Stains were also an underground band started in 1976 by Jesus Fixx (aka Jesus Amezquita) and Robert Becerra. The band went through many personnel changes and two noteworthy genre changes during its existence. The Stains began as a heavy metal band, then shifted to jazzcore, then regressed to fast and furious rock'n'roll with improvised passages à la Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream or The Who, inspired by members' first encounter with a Ramones album. Robert Becerra was heavily influenced by Carlos Montoya, Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, and Andrés Segovia.

The Stains had their start in Boyle Heights. They were soon hated by many in East Los Angeles for their nihilist attitude, but became very popular among street punks in South Bay and Hollywood. Later in their career, they gained some notoriety in Latin America and Europe. Theirs was a violent and unpredictable stage show with excellent musicianship.

Their off-stage behavior was infamous, as the would show up at Brat, Los Illegals gigs, or other shows, and break them up with their Stormtroopers and Stainettes. They flaunted Nazi symbols, even performing as the "Young Nazis" in quasi-paramilitary gear. Other times they would dress like Pachucos, or Revolution-era Mexican bandit costumes, like Pancho Villa. Jesus Fixx even would even go as far as dressing as a Federal officer or Nazi officer, and was almost killed on First and Soto Streets in East Los Angeles

They recorded one EP album on SST Records, The Stains, which is now out of print. One song, "Pretty Girls", appeared on the compilation cassette The Future Looks Bright alongside tracks by Black Flag, The Minutemen, T.S.O.L., and other mainstays of the Los Angeles punk scene. The record was released at least two years after The Future Looks Bright had been released; band members later accused SST of not paying them royalties on the album. In the late 90's a short but brief line up for the group included Mike Vallejo (circle one), Jesse Fixx (founding member Stains), Rudy Navarro (founding member), and John Alvarado (Founding Member of Fish Head).

4)The Stains were a punk band from Portland, Maine. They released a four song 7" in 1980 (including covers of Sex Pistols & Damned songs) and an album in 1989 (of 1980-83 recordings) on their own Gutterworst Records label.

5)The Stains is band from Osijek, Croatia, started playing in april 2008.
