|Archie and The Bunkers are an American rock’n’roll duo formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 2013. The group consists of brothers Emmett (drums/vocals) and Cullen O’Connor (organ/vocals). The pair began recording music in their basement as young teenagers self-producing their first 2 EPs (Comrade X in 2013, and Trade Winds in 2014.) The band's raw garage-punk sound draws heavily from their melding of divergent musical styles. Influences range from jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, and Richard “Groove” Holmes, to punk icons Dead Boys, The Stooges, The Screamers, and more.
The first full-length album. Its 12 songs were recorded at the famed Ghetto Recorders in Detroit. Legendary producer/engineer Jim Diamond captured that unique Archie sound that’s been dubbed ‘HI-FI Organ Punk’, a sound that Emmett describes as, “rock’n’roll that’s been peeled back to its raw foundation”.
