Baxter Stockman was founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2006. The aim was to form a band making harsh and strong rock-music. Over the years this collaboration of three young men has molded itself into a tight unit. Flesh has become stringy. Baxter Stockman sounds like a band, not like three musicians who just happened to wander in the same room at the same time. Previously the group has released two cd ep:s and a 7íí single. March 2013 will see the release of the debut album Punter.
Baxter Stockman attacks with a mundane rage, toppling over itís prey. RAPEMAN at their meanest, SWANS having cramps, G.G. ALLINís forgotten graveÖ The drums are the size of a high-rise stone building. The guitar and the bass screech uncomfortably. Melodies are often based on just a couple of notes, but create a sonic world taking listener far beyond just that. The Vocals range from declaratory murmurs to harrowing cries. Punter includes a collaboration with UMPIO, mr. Pentti Dassum with his junkelectronix. This is not art for artís sake, this is simply rockíníroll as envisioned by Baxter Stockman.
Punter takes itís place in the continuum of abrasive music, starting from the destruction and rebuilding of punk rock, progressing toward american noise-rock and finally ending up in the finnish underground. While Baxter Stockman respects itís predecessors, it takes a thorny path of itís own.
