a brief history of The Wet Teens:

In the late 1970s Glam Punk was rising in music Meccas with bands like Generation X, The New York Dolls, & The Screamers. Meanwhile in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, your only chance to see a live Glam band was to start your own. This was the launching point for Michael Mercury & The Wet Teens. After a few years playing in dives around South Carolina & a single Atlanta show to their credit, they recorded a demo on an old reel-to-reel & dubbed off 50 copies for friends. Shortly after the demos were recorded The Wet Teens came to a sudden end when lead singer & frontman Michael Mercury died of syphilis – a complication of being a sex addict & a Christian Scientist.

Twenty-five years later a house fire sparked The Wet Teens revival. The destruction of the family home led to Michael Mercury’s nephew acquiring a copy of The Wet Teens demo tape & relaunching the band & taking on his uncle’s persona. Eventually they re-recorded the demos & the result before you is Let It Pee.

On Let It Pee The Wet Teens ignore the excesses of when Glam turned into Hair Bands in the late 1980s. They are raw & subject to their own excesses, most notably in the lyrical content that documents the sexual exploits that led to the first Michael Mercury’s death. They mix the sounds of AC/DC, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, & The Stooges to deliver a bleak story as a slab of beach trip debauchery & good times.
