A super-punk superband named Teenage Time Killer – with a line-up including Dave Grohl, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, one-time QOTSA/Kyuss man Nick Oliveri and Dead Kennedys leader Jello Biafra – has sprung up.

The group was co-founded c/o Mike Dean and Reed Mullin, both of Corrosion Of Conformity, and is now at work on music of the “hardcore punk, punk and metal” persuasion, says Mullins, at Dave G’s Studio 606 in California, on the same (and infamous) Sound City mixing console that was the focus of Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ doc of 2013.

Mullins also says: “We had all these other folks who wanted to participate. It’s a very good mixture – people are going to be pleasantly surprised. It’s pretty cool”.

As named by Mullins in this clip, Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta, Tommy Victor of Prong/Danzig, Soulfly guitarist Max Cavalera, Misfits’ Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and Keith Morris of Black Flag/Circle Jerks are also amongst those in the TTK fold.
