Acey Slade, Vocals and Guitar Steve Haley, Guitar Roger 'Rags' Segal, Bass Jonny Chops, Drums Punk rock will never die and New York City's Trashlight Vision hit the point home -- combining the dirt, attitude and workhorse ethic that is the essence of true hardcore rock 'n' roll. Both uncompromising and in-your-face, Trashlight Vision have injected a much needed dose of originality into the rock world, and the outcome has to be heard (and seen) to be believed. The band was formed in 2004 by Acey Slade (who also played with the infamous Dope and Murderdolls), and rather than waiting for the dollar signs of the corporate music industry to come to them, Trashlight Vision opted for the spirit of independence to build the band into the beast it has now become. To give full focus to his new project, Slade moved back to Philadelphia for a time to join up with his old friend Roger “Rags” Segal. Segal had been working with drummer Len Thomas, whom he brought into the fold, and the band was rounded out by Steve Haley on guitar. With the line-up complete, Trashlight Vision moved into their rehearsal spot, fondly known as the “Trashcan.” They quit their jobs, and took their possessions to the pawn shop, ready to subsist on Ramen Noodles, Old Crow and coffee. Here, the band lived, rehearsed, and silk-screened their own T-shirts and patches. They released two independent EP’s that quickly sold out, which prompted them to record their debut album, “Alibis & Ammunition.” The album features 12 tracks of turbo charged rock 'n' roll. Capturing the spirit of the Ramones, the grime of Lars Frederiksen And The Bastards, and the danger of Guns N' Roses, Trashlight Vision aren't copyists, but they are most definitely creating their own spin on rock 'n' roll. “Alibis & Ammunition” features foot-kicking, stomp-along anthems like “Screw Worm Baby” and “Horns And Halos,” the slick “Black Apples,” the dark-yet-punchy “Faceplant Pavement,” and the sing-along first single, “Allergic To You.” Throwing in a blinding rendition of The Ramones’ classic “My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes To Bitburg)”, “Alibis” is packed to the hilt with edgy songs that embed themselves in your brain long after they’ve spun in your stereo. Prior to signing with indie label Rock Ridge Music, Trashlight Vision had already completed three UK tours with no label support. Still firmly entrenched in the DIY mentality, they can be found screen-printing their own merch, and flyering their own shows. The band has played on three continents (Asia, Europe, and North America), and has shared stages with everyone from the Backyard Babies to The Buzzcocks. Dubbed “rude, reckless and loud… tattered eyeliner rock ‘n’ roll” by Metal Edge Magazine, Trashlight Vision has also had the Village Voice call their sound "raw, dirty and uncompromising; a lethal, intoxicating blow of crunch and color, leading the next wave of rock with a blistering yell." The Philadelphia City Paper praised their live show, saying: “After watching them rip and rock through an hour’s set… I was spent. Better than meth-sex.” And Rodney Anonymous of the Dead Milkmen said: "If the Dead Boys grew up around the corner from Three Mile Island, they would be Trashlight Vision."
