The Porch Junkies were formed in the late 20th century on a Long boring Island just east of New York City. Two guys named Erick weave a frenzied yet melodic guitar tapestry that hangs from the solid rhythmic edifice erected by drum and bass duo Raw Dog and Stinky. Stories about hills, pills, sunsets, and suburban smog are carefully pinned to the walls completing the "ThrashingAcidCountryBlues" motif that they have meticulously crafted.
Shortly after forming in early 1999 the Porch Junkies were announced the victors of a prominent battle of the bands contest at one of Long Island's most popular venues, Mulcahy's. They have been featured in the Long Island Entertainment publication as well as Aural Fix Communique. A half-hour spotlight was dedicated to them on WGBB's Long Island Rock Live radio show. In February 2003 the Porch Junkies were asked to participate in WBAB's Homegrown showcase where they were in turn awarded a generous gift certificate from Sam Ash for the band with the biggest draw.
The firs half of 2003 also showed the Junkies in the top 20 two independent music charts with their Emily Brookes Records release, "Tribute to the Hills"
In June of 2003 the band was selected to compete in the Long Island Music Festival sponsored by Good Times Magazine where they won the first round of the competition.
