History / About


Working on a few new albums and artwork for each. Backwards R is also working hard with Mouth Rat for a 2012 release.


Started off a slow year and progressed towards more electronics in the mix. Jammed a few tracks with Brent on bass. Had a few more vocalists try out, but nothing stuck. Released a select few tracks at the end of the year, with two in the works for 2012.


Well, Backwards R met Keeb (Vocals) and Str8Jacket (Bass). They clicked like a computer mouse!!! Jamming now with Mike on Guitar, it is getting insane!! Released one album "Black Hole Experiments" with a few guest musicians. Backwards R also drummed for local Tampa Death Metal: Generichrist for a few months late this year.


Backwards R started recording a 2nd POE album and POE punk cover album for a late 2009 or 2010 release. Stay tuned....


In 2008 Backwards R releases an online only demo titled "Pre-Launch" including 11 tracks and an unlisted hidden cover song of Nirvana's "In Bloom". Mike started jamming guitar with Backwards R on drums until they started playing the punk band Mouth Rat.


Sometime in 2007 Backwards R got another Yamaha set and started simulating the drums tracks created on the Mac. In late 2007 Backwards R started jamming and writing with Kyle on guitar. Moving into 2008, a new demo is in the works and the search for the perfect members for the rest of the band continues.


Writing for years can widen your outlook on music. With many demos recorded using a B.C Rich Rave and a Apple MacBook, things were progressing well.
