" The punk influence is still there, for example, but it has been more thoroughly assimilated suggesting the band has merged its ideas into a sturdy fusion rather than coming from separate backgrounds. Oddly, this is most apparent on one of the album's two covers, Angel City's No Secrets. That Aussie band sometimes seemed a mixture of AC/DC and Sex Pistols, and if that sounds like 22nd Century well..." Tom Harrison, The Province
“The bands three members, Duane Chaos, Tim Plommer and Zippy Pinhead, have really merged their musical direction. The songwriting is really strong in Teenage Underwear Model and U Generation as well as the title track, Howie the Skid. When I first heard U Generation it reminded me of The Who’s earlier live performances. It is a song that basically kicks you in the face from start to finish”. Eddy Bugnut, Bugnut Records
In the spirit of Rise Against, Bad Religion, The Offspring, and of course Green Day, 22nd Century have propelled themselves with vigor and determination with Where's Howie?!!... ...continuing a tradition and style of music that they actually lived and played throughout originally." Cody Plucker Ariel Publicity
"This band could be the next Foo Fighters! They sort of sit in that pocket of Green Day/Foo Fighters and crank out high energy, honest rock!" Doug Manson
"22nd Century...makes up one complete juggernaut firing off on all cylinders... a high energy fun CD to listen to and it never gets old because it sounds fresh, loud!"
"Tim Plommer (guitar/vocals), Duane Chaos (bass/vocals) and Zippy Pinhead (drums/percussion) deliver a full-fledged musical smackdown with their self-titled release. Gut busting guitar, thundering bass and powerful percussion set the stage for Plommer’s angst laden vocals that are one part pissed off punk and one part grunge master general." Froglix, 2009
"Tim can shred a guitar,
Duane is solid on the
bass and Zippy is nothing
but professional on the kit." The Auralkinetic, Fall 2009
“Take a riff-driven band with an impressive low-end churn, backed up by mayhem-educing percussion delivered by Zippy Pinhead, and there is no denying the catchy, arena ready hooks that this band effortlessly cranks out……22nd Century is simply a no frills, straight up rock band whose songs are tailor made for popular rock radio.” Bridgette Oliver, infamousguitar.com (October 15th, 2009)
"Their debut CD was produced by legendary music producer John Webster (Aerosmith, Cher, The Cult) and has garnered attention, including honorable mention in Billboard’s 2009 song writing contest." IndieZine, Dec 2009

22nd Century is a 3 piece hard rock trio in the traditions of DOA and GreenDay. Formed by three veterans of the west coast music scene, the band delivers a hard punching, satirical challenge with songs such as Teenage Underwear Model, Howie the Skid and 509, the latter hitting #1 on the Somojo U.K. indy charts. Fans familiar with the Foo Fighters will hear the same grunge influence in songs such as “Let Me Be” (released 2009) which garnered an honorable mention in Billboard Magazine’s 2009 global song writing contest. The trio is composed of drummer Zippy Pinhead (DOA, The Dils, The Beatfarmers), vocalist & Guitarist Tim Plommer (Anthill) and Duane Chaos (Ace Koden, Centerfold and Driven Force). Having successfully toured, they are now working on their second CD with legendary producer John Webster (Motley Crue, Aerosmith, The Cult, Cher) in Mushroom Studio’s in their hometown of Vancouver BC.
As they embark on their next CD, the trio continues to write songs influenced by The Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, GreenDay, Ramones, Thin Lizzy, the Sex Pistols and AC/DC, then accompany their sound with fist pumping, mosh-worthy live performances. THe new CD will include remakes of Martha and the Muffins “Echo Beach” and Angel City’s “No Secrets”. Read complete history.
