PAY NO ATTENTION TO THIS BALD MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN
GO TO HOLLYWOOD DRUNKS PAGE
ALTHOUGH YOU CAN READ ABOUT THEIR DRUNK ASSES BELOW



"Original Whine Free Pop" - SCHMIDT

"This release is a musical treat" - ROSS

"if you've ever said to yourself that there's nothing
interesting on the radio, tune into Hollywood Drunks." - KENTON TIMES

After completely losing his dead dry hair by 17, Eric Winzenried realized at a young age that life has a way of forcing its stereotypical imprint on the soul. Since then, writing and recording music has been a way for him to forget the various bad hairstyles he attempted throughout the 90's (for instance, the infamous bald guy with pony tail look). He's had the privilege of working many exciting shitty jobs. From office supplies replenisher to food delivery specialist, from wrangler of the mentally ill to naked guy in plays, all his experiences have influenced the eclectic nature of his music. But it wasn't until he found himself divorced at 28, displaced, and sharing a tiny studio apartment with giant sized cockroaches that he finally found his voice as a singer-songwriter.


Self-depracating humor, sarcasm, and their not-so-distant cousin, anger, are a common link throughout both their albums
HOORAY!! and SWELL. Songs such as "You Can't Stay at My Apartment" which deals with the psycho uninvited house guest who never leaves and "Therapy" which tells the charming story of a crystal meth smoking ex-girlfriend are examples of Winzenried's lyrical style. The music itself is a synthesis of different genres including hip hop, pop, rock, glam, reggae, and alternative. However, they all share the same message: if you are able to laugh at the humorous fragile nature of life, you'll stop viewing yourself as a victim and take back the controls.

Around L.A., this group of alcoholic misfits are also know as The Hollywood Drunks, especially since the name Winzenried is too hard to spell, pronounce, or even look at without becoming completely exhausted. In hindsight, they realize now that it was a bad name choice but alas they are stuck with it like an old cold sore that never leaves, thus, the entirely not subtle name change to Winzenried aka Hollywood Drunks. They've just finished their brand new single, "REAL ESTATE", just in time for the 2010 foreclosures.

    Hey, its all good!
    Pro-tip: if you add this line to your profile (above):

     <a href="http://uvumi.com/#hollywooddrunks" > PLEASE VISIT THE ACTUAL BAND PAGE HOLLYWOOD DRUNKS </a>

    it will niftily make that text a link to your bandpage :) (Apologies from deception by claiming to be a pro, and it may not even be a tip.. but hope it helps!)

        Hehe, I will explain a little more: you need to place this:
        <a href="http ://uvumi.com/#hollywooddrunks">
        where you want it to start being a link, and
        </a>
        where you want to stop being a link :) (somehow its not being stopped, so all your profile is a link .. which isn't all bad .. but not so pretty)

        (and in that first bit where it says
          href="http://uvumi.com/#hollywooddrunks"
        you can change the address (http:// part) to anything address you want.

        Whats really clever on Uvumi is if you put a link to a song, e.g.
        <a href="http ://uvumi.com/hollywooddrunks/songs/4076"> Sesame Street </a>
        it will also put a Play/Queue button:
        Sesame Street

        HTML is handy, but also trixy :S Hope I haven't confused you more :S Good luck!!

      yeah. I'm one confused page monger. How did you get your photos on the side and play like a sideshow? Is there a setting for that? By the way, I dug all your posts on facebook. They were awesome.
