Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan has announced the death of Seattle punk rock legend Mike Refuzor (Michael Lambert). Refuzor fronted The Refuzors and The DT’s (Delirium Tremens).

Jivetime Records discussed The Refuzors’ hey day in article a couple of years ago, “During the early to mid 1980s The Refuzors were A-list Seattle punk rockers. They were one of the best live bands around. Uncompromising, edgy and raw. They could have been lumped in with alot of hardcore bands from that era but for one thing. The songwriting, mostly by guitarist and vocalist Mike Refuzor set them far ahead of other great hardcore Seattle bands. And they were always unexpectedly fun.

The Refuzors started out as a trio, and it’s probably their original line-up or Mike Refuzor (Mike Lambert) Bass and Vocals, Danny Refuzor (Danny Barton) on guitar and Roach Refuzor Dan Bradshaw) on drums that is most memorable. Other incarnations included Ward Refuzor (Ward Nelson) on guitar, Al Dams, Mike Purdon on bass and Renee Refuzor (Renee Vazquez) doing some of the vocals.

The Refuzors never made it out of the confines of the Seattle/Portland alt vortex. They probably never made a penny, but the Refuzors were the real deal. Totally without guile or bullshit, their lives and music were undistinguishable. They were hombres, outside the lines, with fiercely loyal fans. By the late 80s, though, the band slowly unraveled from drugs, alcohol and limited recognition outside the Northwest. They called it quits in 1989.”

  • the Rufuzors sucked by 81. Five minute banter about how tough they were between songs. Idiotic violence. Their shows were trainwrecks and that was the appeal.

      So David has an opinion.

    Who?

    • professor marvel

      Someone long before your time.

      • laforge1701

        I’m in my late 40s. I knew Jello. I’ve had conversations with graffin.

        So.. who?

        • professor marvel

          “Late 40s” so…like 48? You were born in 1970? You were 7 or 8 years old when the punk scene was happening? Yes, long before your time.

          • laforge1701

            Weird…the article says they’re an 80s band. And also said they never got out of Seattle, before they called it quits. So they were nobodies is how it sounds. They were just a local band in Seattle.

            Not say a band that toward the world like bad religion or the Sex Pistols

          • professor marvel

            You talk too much for someone who has nothing important to say. Every punk rock band in Seattle was influenced by the Refuzors. So who or what influenced the Refuzors? Definitely Alice Cooper for one. Another act long before your time.

            You breathe too much for somebody who has nothing important to say

          • professor marvel

            You have nothing original to say. But please don’t shut up, I love hearing dumbfux like you pretend they know anything.

            You seem to be the only person on this thread who has any thoughts about the guy who quit the music business 30 years ago and had so little success that he couldn’t make it out of Seattle.

            I mean hell….. Ruth Ruth was more successful.

            If you look up the top Seattle bands, they’re not even on the top 25 list.

            Let’s use the fastbacks as an example, they were formed in 1979 and actually had a world tour.. one of their members was Duff mckagan…. They actually made it 22 years before disbanding.

            Refuzors sold less than 100k albums career wide.

            William hung outsold them.
            Susan Boyle outsold them.

          • laforge1701

            So you think alice Cooper who started producing music in 1962 was influenced by a band from the 80s? I’ll have to ask him what he thinks about that next time I see him.
