Viki Vortex and the Cumshots was formed in 2008 in Girona, Spain by Steve from 70’s punk band, The Spurts and Viki Vortex.
Their debut gig was in the summer of 2008 in Spain with a local drummer. Later they kidnapped Theo from psychobilly band, The Long Tall Texans to join the crew, thus completing the lineup:
Viki Vortex – lead vocals and bass
Steve Manuell – guitar and backing vocals
Theo Theodotou – drums and sarcastic comments
The Cumshots mix the influences of 70’s punk, 50’s rockabilly and any other trashy music they love – basically fast, stroppy and loud.
Their first track, Crazy Bloody Fool, was released on Brown Bag Propaganda’s Radio Riot II in October 2009.
November 2009 they recorded their first ep in Brighton, UK, and in January 2010 Viki Vortex and the Cumshots unleashed their debut self-titled EP on the world. Containing 4 tracks, the album was available on a now sold out CD, but still available digitally.
In December 2011, Viki Vortex and the Cumshots hit the studio again to record another ep – My Plastic Friend – now available on iTunes, Amazon or CD (sold out).
May 2013 saw the release by STP Records of their first full length CD – Bittersweet Twisted Treats – a limited edition run which has now sold out online.
Early 2014, Viki Vortex and the Cumshots released Countdown to a Breakdown on cassette format (with download codes for mp3s). The cassette features the title track and two more new songs along with 4 tracks from the sold out Bittersweet Twisted Treats CD.
January 2014, they released Splat which sold out quickly but is still available digitally.
In 2017, An Altered State of Mine was released at Rebellion Festival 2017.
Currently, Viki Vortex and the Cumshots are shooting for gigs in the UK, Europe and what-have-you.
