TIMELINE

Crazy Townbutton.gif (123 bytes) Crazy Town is based in Los Angeles, California and fronted by members Shifty Shellshock (aka Seth Brooks Binzer) and Bret "Epic" Mazur. Shellshock and Mazur grew up influenced by all sorts of music including hip-hip, punk, and alternative rock, and realized they could make a go at it of their own when they met. They worked together as the "Brimstone Sluggers" in the 90s before going off on their own and then returning together to form Crazy Town. Soon the band was created and included Doug "Faydoedelay" Miller on bass, Rust Epique and Antonio Lorrenzo "Trouble" Valli on guitar, Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein on turntables and James "JBJ" Bradley, Jr., on drums. Mazur also worked as a producer for such acts as Bell Biv Devoe and MC Lyte.
