BIO  
 

Simple:

Acid FM is a Stoner, Hard Rock band hailing from the Charlotte, NC area. The group consists of Sparky Simmons - Vocals / Guitar, Mark Lefler - Drums, and Doc Obergefell - Bass. Overall, Acid FM’s sound is a nice blend of grooved-up Space Rock with Psychedelic and 70’s Fuzz overtones, along with other non-mainstream elements. Some call it "Experi-metal", Fuzz Rock, Desert Fuzz, or Post Grunge. Others call it, "just good hard rock”. Either way, Acid FM is everything you want and nothing that's out there. We are the best sonic-induced trip you will ever take.

Acid FM is a Stoner, Hard Rock band hailing from the Charlotte, NC area. The group consists of Sparky Simmons - Vocals / Guitar, Mark Lefler - Drums, and Doc Obergefell - Bass. Overall, Acid FM’s sound is nice blend of grooved-up Space Rock with Psychedelic and 70’s Fuzz overtones, along with other non-mainstream elements. The music consists of many different layers to incorporate a feel of something, "different," but at the same time maintaining a solid, Psychedelic, Hard Rock Vibe. At times Acid FM's song-writing is "straight down the middle," with vocally driven songs, and at other times, the proverbial 11 minute songs that are more musically driven, with 4 minute guitar solos & ambient synthesizers that will take your mind to a new place. Acid FM always delivers an intense and undeniable live show that will leave your ears ringing and your mind swimming, wanting more. The band sounds like 3 guys who escaped from a mental ward for the insanely talented. The group always guarantees the best audio production available and Hard Rock with some spacey, ambient flavors. Their influences range from Monster Magnet & The Cult to Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Hawkwind. Acid FM's ideas come from various sources that range from movies to books to art to space to you name it! Some call it "Experi-metal", Fuzz Rock, Desert Fuzz, or Post Grunge. Others call it, "just good hard rock”. Either way, Acid FM is everything you want and nothing that's out there. We are the best sonic-induced trip you will ever take.

2006 -2008 (History of musicians)
:

Throughout the life of Acid FM there have been two consistent members; Sparky Simmons & Doc Obergefell. We have had several drummers and musicians who worked with us for long periods of time, but none of them have stood the test of time. Acid FM's first release "Electroviolent Paradox," we worked with Tony Hatfield & one song with Mike Robinson. Unfortunately, Tony is currently unavailable to perform or rehearse. We worked with Ben Shepherd & Ian Guthrie on drums, for the majority of the recording process on our upcoming release tentatively titled, "Phase II." We have also worked with Sicko Zero on drums & Adam Richardson on bongos, not to mention everyone else. Acid FM is recording and on it's way to forming another Live act and getting back on the stage!

2002 -2006 (Brief History / Genre):

Acid FM was conceived by Sparky Simmons in early 2002, with the intent to write & record hard rock that was a blend of two genre's; Stoner Rock & Psychedelic Rock. Sparky began writing, recording & structuring music alone (the proverbial all-nighter's) until meeting up with Doc in late 2003. Sparky asked Doc if he was interested in this writing and recording project, to ultimately become a live, touring Hard Rock / Space Rock act. A long, tedious schedule was put into place, which has transpired into what we are today. Our influences range from Monster Magnet, Kyuss, Clutch to Pink Floyd & Hawkwind, along with Black Sabbath & The Rolling Stones. Acid FM's ideas & influences come from various sources that range from movies to facts to art to space to you name it! Acid FM is the best sonic-induced trip you will ever take!
