Our one-time correspondent, Dan, has published his first review at losanjealous.com. It’s from a show at the Echoplex on Saturday night.
He talks a bunch about Earlimart, and one of their opening bands, Siggy. But when he refused to review a band called Voxhaul Broadcast, because he couldn’t remember any of their songs (they were all too much alike, so he just had nothing really to say about them), he got hated on in the comments by a bunch of their rather inarticulate friends, and even members of the band themselves:
At least your honest. So am i.Suck my dick
To their credit, Voxhaul Broadcast is ever so slightly better on its recordings than it was live. In the studio, they have some of the bounce and energy of Television, Mink Deville, or Tuff Darts–you know, good New York bands from decades ago–with vocals that are just a tad too indie for my tastes. I’m sure these aren’t their influences, but for my tastes, it wasn’t the worst thing in the world.
But live, I agree with Dan, these guys were as bland as bologna. And their comments to his article seem to prove they’re also as dumb as dishwater!
BTW, “Phil” from the comment above is the guy with the Devendra hair below:
