El Terrible is the nickname given to Terry Ashkinos - formerly of indie darlings Fake Your Own Death and Elephone - whilst working as a short order cook in a Sizzler. He began sketching ideas for this project in a small apartment above a bar during an extended stay in Berlin. The result of that time is What Rough Beast - a sparse, dark collection of very personal and diverse post-punk songs.
A veteran of the SF underground scene, Ashkinos worked with a number of producers and musicians to bring El Terrible to life; taking small stories about misfits and the collapse of meaning and layering them with reverb and infectious beats to create an alluring patchwork of uneasiness and romantic nostalgia.
Joined live by Scott Eberhardt (LSD and The Search For God) and Adrian McCullough (Fake Your Own Death), El Terrible experienced a strong 2014-2015, opening for bands like Blood Red Shoes, !!!, Tropics, Soko, Happyness, Radkey, White Denim and The Weekend as well as playing at SXSW, Mission Creek Festival and the Noise Pop Festival. Their debut album What Rough Beast came out in June, 2015 to national and local acclaim. 
"Local San Francisco musician El Terrible is anything but terrible. El Terrible is Terry Ashkinos of Fake Your Own Death, and he has been busy gigging around the bay with his dark, low-voiced tunes that recall the best of fuzzy goth and indie, with poppy undertones a la Interpol. El Terrible first began writing his current repertoire while living in Berlin, and then recruited friends Scott Eberhardt (drums, vocals) and Adrian McCullough ( bass, synth, backing vocals) when he returned to the Bay to help the music come alive. El Terrible has punk sensibilities mixed with just the right amount of pop, post-rock, and indie to appeal to just about any music lover."
