Up today in our feature of Introducing a band you probably aren’t familiar with yet but should be we bring you all the way from Portland US of A….Guerrilla Teens. Read the feature and it’ll become apparent why you seriously need to check these out.
“This year, as a researcher for the Oregon Center for Musical Anthropology, I have been monitoring the activities of the “Guerrilla Teens”, a group of aggressive feral orphans living in the shadows of our state’s largest city, Portland. Upon release from an area juvenile detention facility (due to overcrowding during the pandemic) the youngsters set up camp under the Ross Island bridge. They were first noticed when a passerby heard the strumming of a rudimentary guitar coming from a lean-to near the river’s edge. Apparently subsisting on a diet of nothing more than twigs and berries, the Teens managed to build makeshift musical gear using only raccoon traps and discarded Rainier beer cans. Over the last three months, I’ve not managed to approach the Teens close enough to attempt communication for fear of being mauled (or worse) but I’ve been able to observe some of their bizarre habits. It quickly became obvious to me that they have created their own primitive religion and have entered into some sort of “blood-pact” which centers on the worship of high energy Rock and Roll.
