Beaman: punk on the half shell

Beaman. How does one humble themselves when an entire band, their music, ideals and band name all are created to honor you? Such is the case with Oahu’s newest punk band “Beaman.

Adam Funari, formerly of “Narwhal,” provides the beats while Ray Farias, formerly of PIMPBOT and from False Crack and Subsitoots, Kevin Titty make up the rest of this old school punk band. They got together in January of this year in which Funari calls “a beautiful 16 lbs. 40 oz. three-headed organic stepchild of the Filthy Mongrel himself aimed to bring back the party to those unknowing of the force around us called, ‘The Buck Wild.’

The band has a friend named “Beaman,” who sounds a bit prolific of life experiences that the group formed their music around this one guy. He’s sort of like…The Dude.

“When we first started this band he was the inspiration.” Funari adds, “Most of the songs were written about something he has said or done.”

Their new stuff has moved away from that but they claim him as the band’s mascot and he is still the “driving force” behind the band.

Their first show was April of this year at Mercury Bar for the No Suck Fest Fundraiser. A punk rock festival put together by their bassist Kevin and a few other local musicians. The money was used to bring over Night Birds and Toys That Kill to Hawaii for NSF.

They have a 7” coming out by August which will also be available by digital download and a new EP coming out by years end with the help of Joey Green of “Siblings” and “Die Slow.”

The band also plans to record some songs written by their friend Beaman as a side project, which is tentatively called “Will Bill Brown and the Buck Wild.”

Upcoming gigs include Kaleidoscope on Friday the 13th; they share the venue with Pink Mist. They are doing a benefit called “Defend Otto” at Anna’s on July 20th. This show is helping local business owner Otto of “Otto Cake” get security cameras to help stop drug dealing around his store.

“The Defend Otto Show is pretty important,” Funari said. “The criminals have made physical attacks on Otto and have also made threats to him and his employees.”

They will of course be playing “NoSuckFest” July 27th through the 29th.
