From the muddy banks of the Carquinez Straits comes a secret society of rockers ready to party your pants off. With California’s East Bay Area being their beloved home, the Mystic Knights Of The Cobra seem like they have been playing music since the beginning of time, but in all actuality have been playing locally and down to Southern California since 2006. In what has been a flurry of action, they have played with the likes of Guttermouth, Ginger Coyote & The White Trash Debutantes, Naked Lady Wrestlers, Maldroid, The Zoopy Show, Prima Donna, The Look and Pocos Perro Locos. Mixing punk, hard rock and old school with the occasional rap/break-beat or booty bass line, the Cobra’s are hard to put in a in any musical box. Swerving and searing around crisp guitars and vivid drums, vocalists Baby and Lady Cobra don’t take no lip as they conjure up stylings reminiscent of Tilt and The Runnaway’s. Also known for a bit of a vaudeville stage-show, a magic act or full costumed extravaganza are not unexpected.
The Cobra’s were asked by the Green Day side-project band, Foxboro Hot Tubs to come along for a series of shows up and down the California coast ending their mini-tour at Los Angeles’ famed Roxy. Says Green Day’s Billy Joe in AP magazine online 12/12/08 – “… the tub’s played with, Mystic Knights Of The Cobra, That’s just this freak show of a band that’s from my hometown, [Rodeo, California]. That was really inspiring, to see a band doing stuff that’s far more creative than anything I’ve seen in a really long time, and they’re from this shit town that I’m from. It was just really fun to watch.”-Billy Joe Armstrong-
Locally the Cobra’s have played and pleased audiences at the Bottom of the Hill, The Parkside, The Uptown and many more. 2009 sees the release of their full-length LP. The Cobra’s have just finished recording at Pittsburg’s Nu-Tone Studios. Don’t run and hide. It’s only badass rock n Roll. You know you like it. Stand and face the undeniable. The year of the Cobra is upon us. There is no end.
