AUXES is the brainchild of Dave Laney, a founding member of the bands MILEMARKER and CHALLENGER. Initially conceived as a solo project, the first AUXES LP, Sunshine (Lovitt Records, 2007), was a one-man show, with Dave handling all instruments and even engineering the recording sessions himself. When it came time to translate AUXES into the live domain, he enlisted help from friends Ben Davis (MILEMARKER, SLEEPYTIME TRIO), Mike Triplett (FIN FANG FOOM), John Crouch (CALTROP), and Jay-buss Bowman (RIGHTS RESERVED, EAGLE BRAVO). Eventually, the live band grew into an ever-shifting entity of musical collaborators, taking on a life and unique momentum of its own. AUXES' second LP, Ichkannnichtmehr (Gunner Records, 2010) represented a shift in approach and in the life of its principal protagonist. In mid 2009, Dave Laney made the move overseas and is now residing in his newly adopted hometown of Hamburg, Germany. In 2012 the band’s third full-length, More! More! More!, was released on Gunner Records as a 13-song album, and on Lovitt Records as a 4-song 7" called Mehr! Mehr! Mehr!, which includes a download of all 13 songs. Musically, the new songs have a stripped-down, aggressive punk rock sound—fitting for a city where cop cars are routinely set on fire. Citing rough comparisons to WIPERS, HOT SNAKES, AGENT ORANGE, and pre-Rollins-era BLACK FLAG, the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Have a listen and decide for yourself!
