Artist Profile: Skulrot — Punk Rock, Rhythm and Grunge from the San Fernando Valley


Skulrot is San Fernando Valley Punk, an effervescent trio with a diverse catalog of original music. The bags of bones known as Skulrot include John “Red Ruff” Reddick (Guitar/ Vox), Paul Winter DesCombes,(Percussion) and Sanford (Bass/Vox). From graveyards to pubs, and beyond they rock out with an array of original music and cache of covers by the likes of The Ramones, the Misfits, the Exploited, Mud Honey and more.

The single Operationswas recorded at Mystical Arts Recording Studios in Chatsworth, and around California’s San Fernando Valley. Reddick cited, that he wanted the video to have a vintage feel to it. From the studio to the stage, the trio have played at venues throughout the SFV, including Petie’s Place, Webber’s, Scotland Yard Pub, The Crest, and Mental Mondays at the former House of Brews in the city of San Fernando.
