The Killing Floor

You may know them as The JCM Band, but they've changed their name to The Killing Floor. Here's why (in their words):

"I've always felt the name of the band needed to reflect the music and of course, what we do on stage. One of the problems I was always running into was the name. "What does JCM mean??? No, it's not REALLY ... Jesus Christ on Marijuana Band after all?""The Killing Floor is a blues song from way-way back when - fr: Chester Burnett(Howling Wolf), so if you know your blues, you'd know our roots ARE the blues... Jimi opened up with this song at The Monterey Pop Fest and annihilated everyone, especially The Who... Sounds kinda like The Doors too...he he. It has a contemporary sound to it and most importantly, it's what we do to ourselves on stage for the people. I've had a nose bleed, almost sliced my finger off and still went on. I have almost fallen on my ass plenty of times and I've broken soooo many strings and guitar nuts (no pun intended) ain't even funny.

"Who they are:Juan Carlos Martinez - Lead Vocals/Lead Guitar:"the direction and the vision of The Killing Floor"--past bands - Azrael, Rip Tide, Terra Nova, Trip Tone Venus
