Surf/punk/horror band the Embalmers are fronted by singer-guitarist Gordo, who in 2008 served 180 days at three different county jails, having pleaded guilty to a felony terrorist threat to a police officer and DUI.

“I passed the time by shadowboxing and composing songs in my head. Not comparing myself to them, but I drew inspiration from other musicians, like Tupac and Merle Haggard, who also did time. No disrespect to Johnny Cash, but he only did two days.…

“I did the crime and I served the time. I will always live my life wild and free. A little county time is not going to break my spirit, and neither is being harassed by the man.”
