Big Black Cloud
Big Black Cloud (originally known as Here Comes a Big Black Cloud) is a garage punk band from Portland, Oregon that formed in 2005 after many of its original members fled Louisiana during the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The original line-up consisted of Nick Capello on guitar, vocals and keyboards; Soo Koelbli on bass and vocals; Travis Wainwright on drums; and Ben "Sauce" Applebaum on keyboards, theremin and vocals. Dain Marx was promptly added to the original line-up on bass, keyboards, and eventually guitar, along with a number of dancers. Read more on Last.fm …read full bio

    Bad Times' Best New Bands of 2009

I have disqualified bands I know have existed prior to 2008, including some of my favorites such as Here Comes A Big Black Cloud, Popitilopitilus, Mattress, and Magic Johnson, all of whom I guess I’m giving props to right now.1.. Stag BittenHardcore, punk, whatever.. Stag Bitten always brings it.

    Summerfector Defective Revenge of The Big Black Cloud

    "Here Comes A Big Black Cloud vows revenge!" yelled cloud guitarist, Danger Dagger after the fifth attempt to crank the generator had failed." The Taxpayers must feel my wrath!" he added.. The two bands were the last on the roster at this years summer version of "Defector Fest",sunday afternoon at Overlook Park in North Portland.. The festival was a three day event celebrating portland punk, metal, hardcore and whatnot.. This show was to be a VS show.

    J Sadly, the rumors about the Know are true. The owner kept 18% of everyone's paychecks the entire year long, under the guise of paying taxes. Come tax time, everyone realized that taxes were paid for 1 month only, and everyone is out the rest of the $. When asked about it, the owner resorted to name calling and threats. Several staff members are still owed over 1000+ in unpaid wages as well.
