Vancouver’s Media Club Comes To An End, Local Punk Rockers GNASH RAMBLER To Play One of The Last Shows June 30th
Debut Self-Titled Album Out Now!
Sometimes all great venues must come to end and all must have a great blow out. Offering a superb brand of hooky punk rock tinged power pop, Vancouver, BC’s GNASH RAMBLER will be performing one of the last shows at The Media Club on June 30th for the CD release party for their debut self-titled album released this past March. The Media Club will join the list of many other venues in the city that have been closing over the years making it difficult for the local scene to grow and be exposed.
GNASH RAMBLER drummer Brad Mitchell comments on their cd release show being one of the last at The Media Club where they will be performing a barrage of anthemic riffs and bubblegum harmonies off their debut self-titled album.
“Come on out for one last kick at the can for The Media Club, Gnash Rambler will be performing songs from our new self-titled CD. Once the Media Club goes down, the next Gnash record will be Escape From No Fun City. John Carpenter will direct the video, which will feature his and our original music, with enough gunfights, gorgeous girls, and gore to satisfy the most jaded denizen of this rapidly changing (and not for the better) town.”
Vocalist Nick Venditti also adds about the album:
“Many of the songs are just me reflecting on where we’re going these days. The anxiety felt by so many folks on account of all the crazy things going on in the world and even crazier things going on closer to home. We have probably always lived in interesting times, but because of technology our ability to be aware is always going to be at odds with how we process our feelings.”

All great bands have a great name and the splendidly-named Gnash Rambler is no exception, their name is a combination of that of a classic car and vocalist Nick Venditti’s habit of gnashing his teeth! Their superb brand of ‘hooky metal- tinged power pop” has the potential to be huge, combining a unique musical vision with superb song-writing.
Vocalist Nick Venditti explains the origins of Vancouver, BC based Gnash Rambler’s unique music. “The music we do betrays my own obvious musical influences: The Ramones, Motorhead, Husker Du, The Who and the Beatles.”
Venditti sees the time we live in as being a major influence on Gnash Rambler’s songs. “Many of the songs are just me reflecting on where we’re going these days. The anxiety felt by so many folks on account of all the crazy things going on in the world and even crazier things going on closer to home. We have probably always lived in interesting times but because of technology our ability to be aware is always going to be at odds with how we process our feelings.”
Venditti promises the best is yet to come from Gnash Rambler. “Many of these songs had been around for a long time and I had a terrific opportunity to get them down for posterity. The next album will have even more musical stylistic diversity than this one, but will still possess the big post-punk rock sound that is at the heart of what we’re doing.”
Fans won’t forget their live experience in a hurry! “A Gnash Rambler show will often open with a little self-effacing humour and then unleash a barrage of catchy arrangements where deft bass playing weaves through layers of guitars and all of it nailed to the floor with the merciless rolling thunder of drums…I am hoping they will come for the anthemic riffs and stay for the bubblegum harmonies!”
“Gnash Rambler‘s self titled full length is twelve tracks of straight up punk rock whose influences are worn firmly, and proudly, on their sleeves. Gnash Rambler have produced an album that is born of the early days of punk rock, and of the bands that came before, whilst this is an album that treads a well worn path it does so with a self assured swagger. For those with a preference for punk’s halcyon days, and the garage and rock bands from the 60’s and 70’s who were considered to be ‘proto punks’, then Gnash Rambler would be well worth investigating.” – The Punk Site
“A collection of Pop Punk anti establishment tunes making you feel like your back in the 80’s and 90’s. With a Ramones/Blink 182 fell, this album will surely go down a treat with fans….A great debut album from the Vancouver Punk Rockers. I look forward to seeing what Gnash Rambler have in store for us with their next album.” – The Rock Pit
“Gnash Rambler have captured the spirit of times past. Gnarly guitar riffs, classic rock solos, captivating drumming and catchy vocals all make for an album that is worth countless playthroughs.” – Everything Heavy
“Man Over” just explodes with a passion that must give a reading of 8.9 on the Richter scale! … And the major after shocks are ably rendered by “Bad Karma”” – Wayout Radio
