However, neither of these bands really strike me as “Rock”. Neither does Jagged Spiral for that matter. Maybe its just me, but they sound too ‘indie’ and not enough ‘rock’. Seems there are better selections for best Rock band:
Any one of these bands would Rock the piss out of Knife World AND Vampire Hands AND Jagged Spiral, and they’d do it with two guitar strings tied behind their back.
Gay Witch Abortion would probably get my vote for best local Rock band. Two absolute madmen with savage tone, who don’t really need bass or vocals to rock the planet. Catch one of their live shows if you get a chance, before their music is banned for being “Too Rock”.
Thanks to everyone who voted for us in the City Pages annual “Best Of”.
Local Radio Station 93X almost continually plays the new Seether song, “Fake It”. I like the song, but I got news for you-all: The song “Push Me” by Jagged Spiral will bitch-slap “Fake It” right back into the studio…
…when it’s released, that is.
So enjoy your airplay while you can Seether, until Jagged Spiral pulls the ratings chart out from under you. Don’t worry though, we’ll let you open for us…
As far as I’m concerned, Metallica died in a plane crash during the Black Album Tour, but no one told the band. People WANT Metallica to be good, but come on, “Give me Fuel, Give me Fire, Give me THAT WHICH I DESIRE?” WTF? And for the Love of Dog, could someone take that fucking Wah-Wah pedal away from Kirk Hammett?
They can talk all they want about ‘going back to their roots’ and they can fire and hire whomever they want. Hell, fire the entire fucking band, and replace them with teens picked out on a reality TV show.
IF they release good music, THEN I might buy it. This seems to have escaped the band currently calling themselves Metallica.
Lots of people ask about our influences and ‘roots’. I managed to track down some video of the band that inspired the start of Jagged Spiral – Gauchos.Â They kick all ass, and someday we will be good enough to open for them.
