When did the band get together, and how?
In summer of 2005 Jerr was asked to form a band in a week to play a show….. German formerly of Black Cauldron was in town and they were old buddies was asked by Jerr to form a new kind of music. Nuke Punk (thrash & punk). They got a bass player Big Mike and Yogie on vocals. Within 4 days The Car Bombs was born and that show was played. Tons of shows was played. On and off the band continued, eventhough German’s army duties were there they figured things out. Jerr Brewzer’s nephew Airman Robbie Hernandez passed away in Germany, the band had to do something for him. The Car Bombs did a full misfits set for him and Jerr at the time was also in Voyeur, pulling double duty. The Car Bombs continue now with new line up with Jerr on vox and guitars, German on drums, Aldo Cowboy on bass and vox, and Rip on vox. The band will never end! Nuke punk forever!
