We started in the summer of ‘99 as kind of a side project for all of us. Little did we know that this band would become the main focus and everything else would eventually become the side project to this. We formed the band out of our love for the early 90’s punk scene in Berkeley,CA and the bands that came from that time period. We are also heavily inspired by the music scene hat was and still is flourishing in the swampy region of Gainesville, FL. Bands like Jawbreaker, Samiam, Fifteen, and Radon helped shape what our sound is today. We recently released our first album called “Truth Is A Menace” on No Idea Records and we’ve been touring our asses off like crazy since then, so come out to one of ours shows, say hi, have a drink with us, and hang out.

Now this was a weird one.. when booking Satanic Surfers in November 2005 we tried to hook up a support from the guys in Jets Vs Sharks, they couldn’t do it but mentioned that JvsS guitarist Tim was a massive Satanics fan and had a band called You Me and the Atom Bomb which I knew little about, so I thought I’d better find out about them by offering the show. They came along (made the stagetime by the skin of their teeth - bloody London traffic) and the trio just blew me away. Even though they didn’t sound check and were freaked out from a 4 hour traffic jam they started to play and the songs were some of the best gritty punk rock melodies I had heard this side of The Lawrence Arms/Broadways, Avail and the whole No Idea Records back catalogue. Added to the fact they were some of the friendliest guys I had met - I had a blast - then we had a opening on the show at The Underworld in December and at a day’s notice the guys came up form Portsmouth and played a winner, I think a few more of you noticed them that time… so welcome to Tim, Hud and Dan. You Me and the Atom Bomb recorded their debut album called Shake Up with Peter Miles this spring and you can get your hands on it on June 19th 2006.

in the beginning there were no high ambitions, no dreams of success, not even the idea of having a band just because the girls dig it*. just the desire to rock. just the feeling to “let’s start a band, no matter what ever will be the outcome!”
we were two guys, soon four, later three and then again four. two stayed, two left, two joined. Doesn’t really matter why.
Today there are several people behind the idea of styckwærk. One’s driving, one’s booking, one’s selling some merch, one’s taking care of our internet stuff. no matter how much work either of that takes.
there are of course some bands, that influenced us like Hot Water Music, Muff Potter, Rumbleseat, Trail of Dead
Five years into this adventure, we’re getting an idea of what it means to have a band. We hope to find some more people out there, who like what we are offering them. no matter how many and no matter how long it’ll take us to find them.

*actually that was one of the reasons
