The Huntington Beach, California USA-based Punk-Rock outfit Guttermouth appeared on the local music scene in 1989 with a line-up comprising of vocalist Mark 'Mercury' Adkins, guitarists Derek Davis and Scott Sheldon bassist Clint Wienrich and Captain James Nunn on drums.
The group spent the next year on the road, building a loyal fan base
through live shows and released their first album called "Full Length".
During 1994 the band signed a recording contract with The Offspring frontman Bryan 'Dexter' Holland's Nitro Records who released "Friendly People".
In spring of 1995, bassist Steve Rapp joined Guttermouth replacing Wienrich and in May 1996 was issued "Teri Yakimoto", the record cracked the top 40 of the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart; that year Nitro repackaged the band's debut album which was released with eight bonus tracks under the title "The Album Formerly Known As Full Length LP".
Their next album, "Musical Monkey", arrived in July 1997 and a year later the band released the concert album, "Live From The Pharmacy", which was originally recorded in South Carolina in the summer of 1994.
Rapp left the crew, Ty Smith joined on drums and Captain James Nunn switched to the bass guitar, before Guttermouth started recording a new studio album; "Gorgeous" came out in mid-1999.
Two years later the band returned with "Covered With Ants", their first release for Epitaph Records; it reached the #31 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums list and the lead single, "That's Life", received some airplay on alt-Rock stations. The original bass player, Clint Wienrich, returned back with Guttermouth replacing Nunn and the quintet in August 2002 unleashed "Gusto".
In July 2004 they released their eighth studio album, "Eat Your Face" which was followed two years later by "Shave The Planet".
