Being a college student continues to consume the vast majority of Lightnin’s time and attention. This Holiday season we have the opportunity to squeeze a few gigs in… First, Thanksgiving weekend we’ll be at the Redwood on Saturday, November 29:
And right before Xmas, we’ll be up in the Bay Area for a pair of gigs! Merchant’s Saloon in Oakland on Friday, December 19 and then Bender’s in San Francisco on Saturday December 20:
La Cita 10-17 w/ The Golden Rulers!
Down N Out 10-30 w/ Los Creepers and Plexikill
Lightnin’ promised you this was coming for quite a while now…. Here it is, $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol. II) for your listening and downloading pleasure. Featuring special guests Bill Bateman, Sexual Chocolate, Greg Kuehn, John Lord, Nick Oliveri, and the inimitable Sean Wheeler! This album was recorded by Ian Down and Chris Hernandez at SKR Studios and is the follow-up to last year’s LP $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol I). Anthony Sonetti, Wolf Woodcock, Lil Donkey Clayton K., Whiskey Will Lefevre turn in some fine performances on this record as well. Now that it’s done, Lightnin’ can get to work on the next thing…
The night we get back from Fresno, we’ll head straight to the bar! We’ll be playing three sets starting at The Office in Burbank this Saturday, 8/16 at 10 PM:
Stay tuned for details on our release party for $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol. II)!
It’s been nearly 2 years, now we’re excited as fuck to return to Audie’s Olympic in Fresno to support the Mentors on Friday, August 15!
The next night, Sat 8/16 we’ll be jamming from 10 pm – 1 am at The Office in Burbank. More details coming soon…

We’ve been working hard finishing up the next record, the follow up to last year’s $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol. I). This record treads new ground for Lightnin’ Woodcock & the Bad Muthafuckers, featuring less sexually explicit material (sorry, you dirty motherfuckers) while exploring Lightnin’s mission to win my soul back from the devil.
There are only two songs in this volume dealing with sexual themes, and Lightnin’ wants to share one of them with you right now. Lightnin’ is honored to have “Dirty” Nick Oliveri perform the lead vocal on this tune! In turn, Nick let me play a guitar solo on his upcoming LP “Leave Me Alone” which is coming soon on Schnitzel Records. Lucky Lightnin’…
From the forthcoming LP $atan’s Work is Never Done (Vol. II) coming soon on SkR Records!
Get it: In The Butt (Feat. Nick Oliveri)
Sun Trash is on the horizon once again! Next Thursday thru Saturday, we’re performing at:
5/8 Cafe NELA in Cypress Park ($7 cover)
5/9 Slidebar in Fullerton (FREE!)
5/10 Schmidy’s Tavern in Palm Desert (FREE!)
Jonny Whiteside wrote this spiffy preview:
Sun Trash, the toxic, all-star rock & roll confection from stalwart underworld demons Sean Wheeler, Sexual Chocolate (aka Damian Edwards) and Lightnin’ Woodcock, first erupted briefly in the late 2000s but has again recently burst from remission, like some ghastly virus. Break out the ear protection, kiddies, because, thanks to the addition of exQueens of the Stone Age Nick Oliveri and the legendary, 70-something psych-biker-outlaw overlord Simon Stokes, the combo is now inflicting significantly more damage. Born way, way out in the parched, low-desert sands, theirs is an irresistibly dark and disordered sound, fraught with gallows humor and a wild, offbeat brand of heavy-gauge Gila monster chomp and rumbling tumbleweed grooves.

Same line-up as last year’s performances! Sean Wheeler, Nick Oliveri, Simon Stokes, Sexual Chocolate, Anthony Sonetti, Wolf Woodcock and Lightnin’ Woodcock. If you missed us last year, don’t fuck up again this time!
