The Mystery Addicts
The Mystery Addicts were formed in the fall of 1996 out of the ashes of Dayton punk bands Love Lies Bleeding & Haunting Souls. They toured the Midwest extensively & after a disastrous attempt to record a CD, broke up in the summer of 1999.
But not being the sort to let a good thing go, the boys healed up old scars & decided to try the band again. In the Spring of 2001 the full-length CD “Unluck and Shame” was released and East coast & West coast tours followed through 2002. The group disbanded in the winter of 2002.
The Mystery Addicts played Warped Tour 2002 & shared bills with: Electric Frankenstein, Demolition Doll Rods, Dead Kennedys, Gaza Strippers, Guided By Voices, Iodine, Howlin’ Maggie, Eleven, The Prissteens, Modern English, Wanda Chrome & The Leather Pharaohs, Jack Black, Trash Brats, Flipp, Glenmont Popes, Chickenhawks, Kevin K., & Jeff Dahl.
