Cover of Poison’s “Talk Dirty To Me” from Suckerpunch featuring two Junkyard band members
Suckerpunch featuring Junkyard guitarist Tim Mosherand drummer Patrick Muzingo just posted a link on Facebook to their cover of Poison‘s Talk Dirty To Me” which appears to be the band’s “tribute to the bad hair days.”
The band’s “Story” on its Facebook page indicates (with slight edits):
“Suckerpunch was formed by Tim Mosher (Broken Glass & Junkyard) and Mike Dimkich (Steve Jones Band, The Cult & Bad Religion) in 1994. The pair later recruited Pat Muzingo (Junkyard, Decry & Speedbuggy) and Gary Ivin (Glimmer & London Quireboys) on drums and bass respectively before adding the final piece of the puzzle Paul Worden (Swinging Thing) on vocals.
After recording a series of demos with producer Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball & Cheap Trick) the band was signed to 510/ MCA records in 1996. The self titled debut was released the same year and was produced by Stoker (Specials & Dance Hall Crashers). The band toured the US in support of the record, opening for the the likes of Cheap Trick, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Youth Brigade, Neurotic Outsiders and Blink 182.
The initial run for Suckerpunch might have been a short one but the impact of the record has endured and overtime has earned a cult following among punk/rock fans.
In 2017, Cleopatra Records re-released the bands record (along with bonus tracks) and at long last a reunion show has been booked! Stay Tuned….”
