Although Blitzkid was disbanded in 2012, Goolsby pursues a career as a solo artist as Argyle Goolsby. He performs with both his live electric band, The Roving Midnight, as well as his fully acoustic band, The Hollow Bodies.
In 1997, Argyle Goolsby and lead guitarist and vocalist T.B. Monstrosity (Tracy Byrd) started the punk rock band Blitzkid. Drawing their inspiration from B-movies and horror movie classics, the band was soon considered to belong to the subgenre of horror punk, which emerged in the wake of the Misfits.
In the 2000s, Blizkid developed an underground following in the US, and especially in Europe. Most of the band's albums were released through German horror punk group The Other's label, FiendForce Records.
Between 1997 and 2012, Goolsby recorded seven studio albums with Bliztkid and several split EPs. Many of the group's songs were featured on horror punk compilations in the 2000s such as Mullets & Alcoholics (SFL Records, 2003), Flesheaters! (1332 Records, 2006), Gothic Compilation Part XLII (Batbeliever Releases, 2008), Get acquainted Vol. 1 (THENEXTART, 2008) or The Sound Of Horror Vol. 1 (Robot Monster, 2010).
With Blitzkid, Goolsby has toured in twenty-nine countries, played over seven hundred shows and performed with several other bands and artists like Nim Vind, Stellar Corpses, The Cryptkeeper Five, The Damned, Leftöver Crack, The Crimson Ghosts, Strung Out and Face to Face. Biltzkid was also part of many festivals and music events such as the Summer Breeze Open Air, the M'era Luna Festival or the Amphi Festival.
On November 10, 2012, during their final "Return To The Living Tour", Blitkid's members played their last concert in Düsseldorf (Germany)
When questioned about the band's retirement, Goolsby stated:
It is not that we don't believe in what we are doing anymore. It's not that Blitzkid has become a burden. I have still plenty of music that I have written and that I am currently writing. Our music is not an extinguished flame. Retirement is more of a practical decision for right now. —————————————————
