Punk rock, at its core, has always been DIY. Certain bands seem to take that notion
a step further. An attitude, mixed with influences as far back as The Clash, as recent
as Hot Water Music, can render an almost immediate picture of what embodies
Super Black Market.
Hailing from the midwest, brothers Joseph and Sonny [Remlinger], since adolescence,
have been harnessing their passion for playing punk rock. As a drummer for BYO
Records band Kosher, Joseph toured at a young age, and adopted a philosophy that
in true punk rock, you should do it right, or go home. Trent White, the lead guitarist of
Kosher, was along side Joseph during the relentless touring with such bands as
Dillinger Four, Against Me!, and Lawrence Arms all over America.
In the meantime, older brother Sonny, formed heavy hitting, Kansas City five-piece
Dynamo. There he perfected his unique brand of punk rock, utilizing more elements of
melody and harmony than in any previous venture. With Des Moines native Benn Bluml,
Sonny and company released two albums with Kansas City-based Third World Records.
Through extenuating circumstances that led to the demise of both Kosher and Dynamo
in late 2004, the brothers [Remlinger] decided to get back to their roots. Joined by Bluml
and White, Joseph and Sonny formed a rock-solid rhythm section to compliment the
driving lead and rhythm guitars. In the ever-changing punk rock scene, Super Black
Market has stayed true to its DIY philosophy, and taken the attitude a step further.
Do it right, or don't do it at all.
