Creedle was an avant-jazz-punk-art-damaged band based in San Diego, California which released three full length albums on Cargo Music/Headhunter Records in the 1990s along with numerous 7" singles. The band was primarily composed of Devon E. Levins a.k.a. Devon Goldberg (guitar/vocals), PieBoy a.k.a. Tim Blankenship (bass/vocals), Dr. Gein a.k.a. Dion Thurman (drums), Stretch a.k.a. Robert Walter (keyboards and samples) and Cheme a.k.a. Cochemea Gastelum (saxophone). Creedle was formed after the nearly simultaneous break ups of San Diego bands The Pull Toys, Daddy Long Legs, Holy Love Snakes and If Tomorrow.
Half Man Half Pie, Creedle's first album, was recorded and mixed by Donnell Cameron at Westbeach Recorders in Hollywood, California. The artwork was created by Fip Buchanan. The second album, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, was a concept album pertaining to freemasonry, the Knights Templar and related conspiracy theories which was also recorded and mixed at Westbeach Recorders but instead by Bill Jackson, who had worked with Prince, Danny Elfman and Elvis Costello. The album features the Skinbus Horns comprised of Pete Kellers on alto saxophone and Pierre de Gaillande on trumpet. The final album entitled When The Wind Blows added alto saxophonist Cochemea Gastelum. The album was recorded and mixed by Mark Trombino at Big Fish Studios in Encinitas, California and included the vocals of Rob Crow and Pierre de Gaillande on various tracks.
Members of the band continue to record and perform with The Greyboy Allstars, The DaoSon For, Morricone youth, Pretendo, Fluf, Robert Walter's 20th Congress, End of Power and Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. Creedle, joined by Rob Crow on vocals, keyboards and samples, played a reunion show on December 30, 2007 at the Casbah in San Diego which is where the band played its first show in 1991.
