BIOGRAPHY:


Dirty Laundry formed on January 2nd, 1993. At that time the band was made up of Kory Ochsner on Drums, Brandon Hound on guitar, Jones on guitar, and Chase Stain on bass. After the first few weeks, Ochsner moved on from the band. Brandon Hound took up drumming and they got lead singer Marcus Looman. Shortly after, Brandon Hound started on guitar again, and they chose Charles Duffy to become their new drummer. Looman then left the band to perform with his main project Regiment.


Stain and Hound became the new lead singers. The four young lads went into the studio and recorded their first E.P. "9 1/2 Months", and released it on Bad Stain Records in 1994. Shortly after, Duffy left Dirty Laundry to pursue his other band "Corrupt Citizen" and Jones left the band for creative differences and later joined "D-I-X". Dirty Laundry got Billy Horner to become their temporary drummer, but his band Subject Mad took up most of his time. Horner introduced B-Hound and Stain to Ryan Hamilton, who became their full time drummer. Dirty Laundry was now a trio and released their second E.P. "All Washed Up" on Bad Stain in 1995, and followed with a live album titled "Jiz Mac Attack in the Butt Crak".


Dirty Laundry began touring through states along the west coast promoting the album during summer break when they didn't need to be attending school. They released their debut full length "Tales from the Laundry Room" on Bad Stain in January of 1996.


After touring for the album, Hound left the band for creative differences, leaving Stain the only original member. Hamilton and Stain recruited a new guitarist, Tokyo Bill. Tokyo Bill, Stain and Hamilton once again started performing statewide and released their album "Songs to Wash Clothes to..." in 1997. The band played out and promoted the album, and Hamilton left the band to pursue college. Bill and Stain had Brandon Hound fill in for Hamilton for a few months, but the band had gone through so many members it seemed more work then fun. They finally ended the band in 1999.


Just a few months after calling it quits, Chase Stain decided to reform Dirty Laundry with an entirely new line up. Stain graduated to lead vocals and guitar. Their new drummer was Joe Detergent, and new bassist was Justin Bleach. Finishing the line up was Johnny Laundromat on lead guitar and backup vocals. Dirty Laundry once again started touring and eventually entered the studio to record a new Christmas album. During the recording process, the bands drug problems increased, and drummer Joe Detergent passed away from a drug overdose while laying down his drum tracks. Shortly after Joe Detergents death, Dirty Laundry released the Christmas themed seven inch record they had been recording for Raunch N’ Roll Records.


Joe Detergent’s passing left the band devastated, and Justin Bleach chose to part ways with the band. Laundromat and Stain joined forces with J-Sin Daily and Tom Lynch, but just a few months later Laundromat parted ways an was replaced with Yort. Lynch was later replaced with drummer Tad Gurthman, and after so many lineup changes, the band changed their name to Yar's Revenge, and Dirty Laundry officially broke up for good.


Dirty Laundry played with some great bands during their career, including Link 80, Total Chaos, Lagwagon, Sublime, Buckwild, 22 Jacks, Against All Authority, Sam the Butcher, Mandingo, The Generiks and Drain Bramaged. In 2005 they won the award for Best Retired Band at the 2005 AZ Ska-Punk Awards. On March 25th, 2006, Dirty Laundry performed a live show in Phoenix, Arizona for the re-release of their 9 1/2 Months EP. It was the first live show that Dirty Laundry had performed in 4 years, and was the last time that Dirty Laundry ever played live.


In 2021, Dirty Laundry released a 3 disc box set titled, “Harmonies from the Hamper”, containing the entire catalog of Dirty Laundry’s music on Bad Stain Records and Media Core Entertainment. In addition to over three hours worth of music, the box set included “Tales from the Laundromat”, the Official Biography of Dirty Laundry, written by Chase Stain, “9 1/2 Years”, a discography of all of the bands releases during their lifespan, “Meet your Laundry Care Professional”, a complete list of al of the different musicians who were members of the band during its history, as well as a band member timeline, lyrics for every song in the Dirty Laundry catalog of music, posters, stickers, and more! The box set is a limited edition release, with a press run of only 2,000 copies, and each box set is individually hand numbered. Even with all the love from their fans, there are currently no plans to reform Dirty Laundry.
