The year was 1979 and Wyldlife, then just shy of 21, were enjoying a post-rehearsal slice of pizza together down in the Lower East Side. A game of Time Warp pinball sounded like the perfect post-lunch treat, but when Russ (drums), Samm (guitar), Spencer (bass) and Dave (vocals) all inserted the quarter at the same time, they were instantly transported to the year 2010!
Arriving in the 21st century was a bit of a shock for the leather jacket-clad garage quartet. But after scoping out the pretty girls and the bitching party scene, they decided to stick around and continue playing the loud, fast and catchy rock and roll sound they were so familiar with.
That same year, they went on to release their first EP, Nicotine, which left audiences hungry for more tunes. After an onslaught of mic swinging, boot stomping live shows around the NYC area, they put out their first self-titled record on both vinyl format and CD (“What the hell’s a digital download?”)
Wyldlife’s sound and performance has been compared to The New York Dolls, The Undertones, The Only Ones, and the Stooges to name a few, and they’re not resting for one second. Audiences can expect a brand new LP from the boys as early as Spring 2013. Until then, they hope you’ll share a beer, clap your hands and live everyday like it’s Saturday night!
