Whatz It to Ya?
Lori's Headache was originally formed in 1987 in Poplar Bluff,Mo. Under the name 'Dirty Trix'.....The original members included Chad Montague-Guitar.....Rusty Corzine-Vocals....Richard Shelton-Bass.....and Doug Thornburg-Drums......In 1987 they played around southeast Missouri booking gigs at small bars,clubs & parties....they were even a house band in Qulin,Mo. ^#^for about a couple of months and the only one who was 21 was front man Rusty..... They played cover tunes as well as their own original music...Hell they even jammed at a nursing home and got on KFVS12 NEWS...(think about it, if nobody liked the music....they couldn't hear it anyway...haha).....a local Dexter Mo. ^#^nursing home had what they called a 'Rock Party' the place had an enclosed courtyard but it was full of large Rocks, so they wanted to move the rocks out and plant grass for the residents....A local trucking company donated trucks to move the rocks....local high school kids donated time to help with moving the rocks (with wheel barrels)...and of course 'DIRTY TRIX' donated the music for the entertainment!!!!and some how KFVS news channel 12 found out!!!!!! It was the ultimate 'Rock Party'...... But then as the story goes in 1990 the band broke up and went their seperate ways.....The only 2 members that stayed incontact was old time friends and the 2 chief songwriters of the band (Chad & Rusty) In 1991 Rusty & Chad decided that recording their music on a 'jam box' had gone far enough and it was time to take the recording process to the next level....at that time (1991) the closest recording studio was in kennett mo. ^#^but it was mainly country-and not knowing their ass from a hole in the ground Rusty & Chad took off to kennett and recorded an 8 song cassette....calling it 'Dirty Trix-Down & Dirty' Chad covering the bass lines and their good friend Roger Mattingly played the Drums....The songs included: Rock n' Roll Crazy, I'm with you, What can i say, Fight to survive, Captured, Juvenile jail, Social kill & Back home..... It made the local paper and believe it or not it sold a few copies but......... knowing music now, which they didn't know then..... IT SUCKED!!!!!! In 1992 at a fireworks show in jonesboro,Ark. Rusty met a guy named Bob Ketchum who was video taping the fireworks...he claimed to have a recording studio in Mountain home,Ark and had recorded the band KROKUS, which at that time was pretty popular,he even claimed to have a couple Gold records???.....well..... Rusty, thinking that this bob guy was just blowing smoke up his ass headed back to MO. ^#^and told Chad what he had found out and to go call this guy's bluff, just to see if it was true....and the very next weekend the 2 were off to bob's studio (cedar crest studio)and low and behold BOB WAS TELLING THE FRIGGIN' TRUTH!!!! he had done the pre-production on the krokus album.......'Way COOL'!!!!!! So this spawned the birth of the 2nd DIRTY TRIX recording....plainly called 'DIRTY TRIX'...... The 10 song cassette featured some of the coolest songs the 2 had wrote like .....WHAT CAN I SAY....SHE AIN'T NO GOOD......STONER.....CAPTURED......JUVENILE JAIL......BAD GIRLS......IN MY HEART.....VIRGINITY IS CURABLE.....NAME AIN'T SUZIE.....MR. FANTASY...again Chad covered the bass lines but this time bob (studio engineer) played the drums 500 copies were purchased, not to say they all sold, but somehow they all disappeared quite quickly!!!!! After this period of time Chad moved off to Florida to follow a job and Rusty stayed in Missouri and worked..both still keeping in touch & the music alive Chad played in a few Florida bands like FUSION......TASTE LIKE CHICKEN.....CHEAP 3 PIECE SUIT....etc..etc....and Rusty kept writing songs while driving in his UPS truck...... About the year 2000 after about an 7 year absence Chad moved back and the 2 hooked up again and started making more music...this time recording it on a computer.....but after the computer recordings,4-tracks,8-tracks and so on got old Chad & Rusty decided to go BIG time and in late 2003 they opened up their own recording studio called DROP17STUDIO...check out their website at drop17studio.com By this time Chad had his own hard rockin' band CYNDERBLOK check them out at: Drop17Studio.com/cynderblok About mid 2004 wanting to have something to show the clients, like a finished product or what the studio can do Rusty wanted to produce,record and duplicate a CD.....he brought the idea to Chad and after that came the birth of 'Lori's Headache'....again Chad played guitars....Rusty on vocals....but this time a 'BadAss' named Cory Jackson (drummer for the 'BLOK') played the drums and bass lines......the 9 song CD has some of the wildest....crazy...hard rockin'.....off the wall....strait forward rock n roll to date......it's entilted 'DRIVE IT LIKE YA STOLE IT' & the songs include.....NASTY BIZNESS.....DRIVE IT.....MY ADICTION....WHAT CAN I SAY....CHA CHA CHA....GASOLINE.....YOUR LOVE......TIL I DIE.....CORYSONG......... it even gets played on the local radio station KJEZ 95.5 'The Bone' and believe it or not even some of the old TRIX stuff has appeared on the air!!!!! Oh yeah....the name Lori's Headache came about from Rusty's wife Lori who always got a headache when they would jam out and forget to close the studio door!!!!!........oops......
