Raw Oyster Cult is what happens when 3 Radiators shuck around with Papa.

New Orleans is known for its legendary supergroups. The latest and one of the greatest ever is Raw Oyster Cult, featuring members of the Radiators, Papa Grows Funk and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. Radiators frontman and guitarist Dave Malone and PGF’s founder John Gros give the band two of New Orleans’ most distinctive lead vocalists, and Gros adds his monster Hammond B-3 organ playing to the mix. Former Rads Camile Baudoin on guitar and vocals and drummer Frank Bua,Jr round out this amazing line-up. Bassist/vocalist Dave Pomerleau juggles his schedule with Johnny Sketch to be able to play with both bands. Graham Robinson or Cass Faulconer play bass whenever he can’t make it’.

Raw Oyster Cult was put together by Malone to provide an outlet to continue performing the classic Rads tunes that so many fans miss hearing. They also plan to write originals, put a different spin on favorite older songs and work up brand new tunes written or co-written by Ed Volker, the Rads’ prolific songwriter.

“It’s great rethinking Rads songs,” says Malone, “tweaking arrangements and
even adding vocal harmonies, something the Rads were not really known for.
We’re all really enjoying playing together and can’t wait to see what new tunes emerge.”
