band of Olympia
. released three albums on the K Records
label as well as a number of 7"
s and whatnot.
Tremendously loud and ponderous, in the vein of the Melvins. As if they were out to singlehandedly save calvin johnson's reputation from the twee trashtalkers.
Highly recommended for anyone with even a twinge of heavy metal fondness.
This is a band that issued a press release to the effect that their tour had been delayed because they were all having bionic arms installed.
Bass player Jared Warren is now the singer for the crazy band the Tight Bros From Way Back When. He also hosts a fine karaoke night on Thursdays and Sundays at Thekla.
