Bent Nails were one of nearly four dozen Northern California and Nevada bands featured on the Faulty Products distributed Alternative Tentacles LP, NOT SO QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT. Bent Nails were from the Bay Area community of Millbrae, California. The band consisted of Mike Luzader (drums), Byron Stamatato (bass), Zach Geogopoulos (guitar) and Frank Portman (vocals). Formed while they were still in high school, the band did not last too long in this incarnation.
Frank and Byron remained friends through college where the duo eventually became the band known as "The Mr. T Experience" or "MTX."

We found lots of MTX sites, but very little in the way of links to websites pertaining
specifically to BENT NAILS. However the latest alternative and punk music around can be found at the
Alternative Tentacles website. Check it out!
