Patrolled By Radar (formerly 50 Cent Haircut) is an American Rock and Roll band who have been a group since 1998. They are
known for their live performances and spontaneous song selection of dynamic
originals, and thought provoking renditions of classic b-sides. Stylists of electric
good-time music with a pile-driver impact, they are festive and exuberant,
occasionally beautifully plaintive, and always dazzling. In the tradition of the 1970's
and 80's London based Pub Rock scene, they adeptly blend classic Blues,
Rockabilly, Country, and Punk inflected Brit Pop, into a sound which transcends
genre specific labeling.
Based in Los Angeles, the band was formed by singer/songwriter Jay Souza
(guitar/harmonica), and includes Bryan Coulter (guitar), Bryan Stone (bass), and
Bosco Sheff (guitar/slide and lap steel), Ben Johnsen (drums).
