Accidental Tribe is ragtag outfit of misfits and miscreants that found themselves at shady late night bars listening to everything from Agnostic Front to Sun Ra, to Nirvana, to Hendrix, and loving every second. Those influences are evident in their music.
In 1990, Accidental Tribe released a 7” of punk rock blues fury titled, “AURUM” on Noiseville Records. The Line-up was:
Beat A.Tribe Arevalo - Vocals/Bass
Peter Harrison McWhinney – Guitar
Dino Sex – Drums (Drummer for GG Allin & The Murder Junkies)
Shortly after the release of Aurum, childhood friend Moe Cash joins the band and takes over on bass, while Beat joins Pete on guitar. Rockabilly Phil Hummer also joins the band. In 1993, Accidental Tribe releases “JAZGODROK”, also on Noiseville Records.
In 1996, the band scaled back down to a trio, with the line-up of:
Beat A.Tribe Arevalo - Vocals/Guitar
Moe Cash - Bass
Dino Sex – Drums
A couple of years later, the Accidental Tribe decided to take a few years off for personal reasons. During that time, Dino Sex went on to be The Murder Junkies full time drummer.
In 2004, Beat and Moe hit the studio and started working on the Tribes final recordings.
In 2009, the Accidental Tribe released the “Draggin Flu” 7”, distributed by Cockroach Media.
Soon after the release of the Draggin Flu’ 7", Accidental Tribe recruits D-Boogey WonderLand on Drums, and the Tribe hits the recording studio to work on new material. Halfway thru production, Peter Harrison McWhinney rejoins the band.
In 2010, Accidental Tribe releases the “Resolution” CD, distributed by Cockroach Media.
Accidental Tribe is currently recording a new CD, with the return of Dino Sex on drums.
