Art Godoy Kimmer and Steve Godoy ( I love these guys!)
Well folks I finally got to meet both Godoy brothers at the same time! My readers know them as the handsome pro skateboard legends, famed Guinness Book of Record holding tattoo artists and radical punk rockers. A MATCHED SET!
They have a historic life story and the evolution is a very interesting story which you can read more HERE
I began working with Steve and Art on their blogs and social networking and grew to love them both. such a talented set of twin brothers! Last spring Steve Godoy came to Detroit to play The Corktown Tavern and we went down to see him and of course his drumming blew me away. Read my post on that show HERE
So fast forward to last month when Steve and Art called to let me know that ART was coming to Detroit and was also playing the Corktown! Been there twice in my life and both had Godoys involved! We'd seen Steve blow the crowd away and now we were on our way down I94 to see Art blowus away on Bass. These boys do not do anything half way trust me... So the Hatter and I were excited to see the Legendary Vibrators with Art Godoy on bass.

With a career lasting thirty-three years, vocalist/guitarist IAN "KNOX" CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London.
They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band's debut single "WE VIBRATE" came out in November (one of the first punk singles) and was followed two weeks later by CHRIS SPEDDING'S "POGO DANCING" single with the VIBRATORS as the band on that.

The Godoys band The Last of the Bad Men are an international punk rock super group, the brain child of pro-skaters/tattoo artists Art and Steve Godoy. Coming fresh off the heels of their previous band, The Exploding F**k Dolls, the Godoy brothers recruited punk rock soldiers from around the world to found The Last of the Badmen
Despite numerous line-up changes, The Vibrators are still touring to this date as a three-piece, Carnochan and "Eddie" being the only original members with Art Godoy very ably filling in on Bass.
