Rosebud and Scott Ireland got to know each other in San Diego in the late 80s while playing in their respective punk bands, Night Soil Man and the Pulltoys. At some point, they wound up getting out their acoustic guitars to jam together, and a connection was made. After a serious accident left Scott temporarily paralyzed, the bands broke up. What followed was a long, slow, but successful recovery, after which they picked up their guitars again and decided to go at it as a duo.
“Experiencing a Bug Guts show is like going on a picnic on a beautiful sunny day on a grassy field surrounded by lovely daisies,” says band supporter Steve Poltz. “Let the wind blow through your hair and close your eyes and go on a magic ride to happy land.”
