Singer Chris Randall said he originally ran across "Sister Machine Gun" in a thesis by Jim Marcus while in college- though many believe the name was derived from Skinny Puppy's "Tin Omen." Randall also appeared in the 1996 issue of Playgirl as one of the "Top 10 Sexiest Rockers." He prefers to call the band's music "aggropop." I have liked their stuff for years, although nothing about it is truly profound. Just hard and fun.

I saw them several years ago open for Prong in Atlanta. An excellent show. The angst/passion they exhibited ignited the crowd.
