Imagining a sonic world that diverged from our own in 1991,
Doctor Striker shreds and roars over heavy beats, guitar riffs
bass lines, and synth hooks.
He brings the classical and punk worlds together with training
and discipline to electronic pop to create a political,
personal and incisively optimistic brand of music.
Doctor Striker's lyrics, brutally simple in the punk
tradition are inspired by his upbringing in recession-battered
metro Detroit and subsequent life in Oakland, California.
His formal training in economics and history at the
University of Michigan bring an uncommon depth and historical
Doctor Striker exclaims: "If you fight the man,
you are the man If I'm rich, no one can touch me.
If I'm rich, I am the law. / But I'm poor, I don't care.
I am poor, I am free."
Over the years the Doctor has joined forces with fellow
Doctors qualified in the Relms Of Rock They Include...
Doctor Jengison Young Sun Applesauce Pants The Second
Doctor Jengison Young Sun Applesauce Pants The First
And Last emerged from the year 1980 with the music in
his infant heart. He destroyed his first drum set at age
6, the same year he pounced on to the stage. After
decades of experimenting with various instruments and
styles, from jazz to metal, he came to find his throne
with the ranks of Doctor Striker as the machine man
Doctor Guinevere Q No Big Fucking Deal Striker
Guinevere Q - No Big Fucking Deal, first saw the
Doctor at Balanced Breakfast San Francisco,
Declaring to the Wolrd "My name is Doctor
Striker and I rock major fucking ass."
Guinevere Q went home thinking, "damn, I wanna
rock major fucking ass," and went and studied the
doings of the Striker. Fate linked them together and
Guinevere Q - lead singer and bass player of The
Wyatt Act - was Reborn as Doctor Guinevere Q
No Big Fucking Deal Striker . The two knew
at that moment that a magical music making adventure
was about to begin.
Doctor Crispin Meeder Striker
In the year 2017 Doctor Chrispin Meeder Striker decided
to join the ranks of the Doctors. He aims to heal
the world through in-you-face shredding and insane stage
performances. He brings his years of experience
with Shred Metal with him to make Doctor Striker
a full-frontal assault on your mind and soul.
Doctor Striker is celebratory and critical,
insightful but ecstatic.
By committing to a pop ethos, he avoids joining the
half-baked rocker-philosopher tradition.
Indeed, if Doctor Striker believes in anything,
it's in the eternal truth of heavy riffs.
Though he's not shy about his vision of utopia:
"Going in to work / We party till it hurts
Sleeping at the desk. / Dream, Party, Rest."
