Phil Silk (Lead vocals, guitar) was born on the planet Rockathong in the Pleides star cluster, and was the first humanoid born holding a guitar and smoking a cigar (How this happened is still a mystery). Phil has fronted and played in numerous bands including Off the Richter, The Guppy Effect, MG's Henchmen, 5 Minute Rule, and B4 The Storm in Madison...as well as B4 the Storm, Elephant starving daisy, and Shut up and Deal in Austin, TX. His favorite color is Red and he enjoys long walks in the junk yard and counting birds in the park. In addition to playing with YOUR MOM, he enjoys doing Barnyard puzzles. He works as an assistant shoelace repairman and also sells his used socks on Ebay. His favorite animals are sharks and unicorns.
Bill Anderson (Keyboard, guitar, vocals) was conceived deep inside a cave in the Hymalaya mountains with with a sense of pitch so good that he came out of the womb crying a perfect A440. In his 20's, after inventing a time machine out of spoons, duct tape and a touch of garlic, he went back in time to deflower Virginia Callahan before Billy Joel even had a chance to proposition her. Now producing some of the finest artisan cheese in the state of Wisconsin under his own brand, Creme de la Coulee Artisan Cheese, Bill spends his free time mastering absurd jazz chordal theory, to come up with the perfect piano fingerings for YOUR MOM. Bill has played in many bands and was most recently in Kelsey Miles band. His favorite color is beige and he loves ponies and teddy bears...and his thumb tack collection.
Rob Junceau III (Upright Bass,Bass, Vocals) can do it all...and YOUR MOM enjoys everything he does...oh yeah. The Rock Gods deemed that he be the one that can play anything on bass and that a fretless bass be his weapon to explode the minds of helpless fans that can't comprehend the genius of his playing and bombastery. You will enjoy the depths of his playing especially at YOUR MOM acoustic duo shows. His voice would make Johnny Cash cry a river of joy. He has played thousands of shows and you may have seen him conquering the low end with bands MSB (the Mighty Short Bus) and Mostly Water.
Brevin Becker (Drums) Brevin Becker comes from the wondrous light above as Jesus's second cousin and has painstakingly sacrificed himself for Your Mom's sins. He is a lumber jack by day and a prophet on the drum kit by night. Brevin painfully handcrafts his own wooden drum sticks and puts an offering of his blood and flesh into each pair. You might recognize him from bands such as Casket Robbery or the Josh Becker Band. Brevin's skillz on the drums were acquired after playing years of real life Wack A Mole in the woods. Some of his favorite non musical activities include building log cabins, taking long walks on water next to the beach, creating funky alternate realities where The Power Rangers rule the world and drinking Dr. Pepper.
Josh Stromer (lead guitar, vocals) played about 10 shows with YOUR MOM and was a big hit. He is currently playing guitar with the popular Madison based band Angels and Outlaws. I recommend catching a show. We wish him the best.
Honorary member “Kid” Chris Ulbrich was born in a prefabricated straw hut somewhere deep in the African bush. Raised to communicate only through “talking drums” with members of surrounding villages, he never actually learned to speak or write beyond what could vaguely be described as a series of guttural grunts and hisses. This makes him the ideal drummer for today’s working bands.Since then he has brought his “drumming as language” style to Madison, WI and various projects throughout the region including funk/reggae band Mr. Burgundy, original bands Free Four and E is for Epic, and the travelling troubadour and purveyor of pop perfectionism, Tim Stop. Using these collective experiences from his past and present, he seeks to pummel the skins harder than any other drummer in history as an honorary member of YOUR MOM. His current band Shotgun Jane plays all over southern Wisconsin - YOUR MOM recommends you check them out!
OUR FRIENDS AND HONORARY MEMBERS (all played at least 5 shows w us)
Honorary member Mark "The D." Fairchild hails from the small village of P-Vegas and has spent his entire life mastering the craft of smacking goat-skins with sticks made from baby-seal bones. In his free time he can be found impersonating Jocelyn Wildenstein at local comedy clubs or skinning dipping exclusively in his neighbor's above-ground pool. Winner of the No Bell Taco Peace Prize in 2013, Mark touts is accolade proudly around his neck at all times and will contemptuously display it upon request. He has previously and occasionally graced the acts of Thirsty Jones, Devil's Fen, and Derp with his majestic beard and untamed mane. He soon plans to achieve his life-long goal of completing the Loco Challenge, which involves eating four Locos Tacos from Taco Bell while simultaneously drinking four Four Lokos, only time will tell if such a feat is possible. Mark plays currently for the country band Thirsty Jones and we highly recommend you go check them out!!
Honorary member Cactus Joe was born in a tropical rain forest uninhabitable to cacti. The primary question he gets asked by smitten fans is where his name came from.
"Because of my moist upbringing, I was never very good at watering house plants," Cactus said. "So everything died...except the cactuses...or is it cacti? I don't know. I was schooled by a pod of manatee. Pretty dumb animals, but super chill and huggy and stuff. What was the question again?"
Cactus' parents were Time Lords, so he had the luxury of seeing some great shows in the mid-60s, though he was born years later.
"I was there for the Led Zeppelin mud shark incident," he said. "So was your mom. No, not the band...your actual mom. I guess her folks were Time Jumpers too. Anyway, it was the 60s, what can I say?" Cactus Joe is best known as the band leader and songwriter for the original rock-n-roll band GUPPY EFFECT, but he is also a musical mercenary for hire and has guest rocked with numerous others. Due to his vast travels across time/space, he has contributed music and lyrics to many famous bands who could not, for logistical reasons pertaining to quantum paradoxes, credit him on their records. He is the protagonist on the three record vinyl album by the band Alien Conquest. Oh wait, never mind, that hasn't been written yet...expected in 2017.
