Band bios are a tedious string of awkward adjectives and onomatopoeias with just enough recycled filler to make even the most devoted music lover yawn. Take this advice, skip the bio, listen to the band. . .
What, you still here? I guess this unfortunate exercise is still a must, especially as an album release looms.
We could take the traditional trading card approach to describing ourselves: Starting Date – 2006, Hometown – Oshkosh, WI, Band Members – snore.
How about a character sheet approach: Alignment – Chaotic Neutral, Dexterity – 21, Grappling Skills – 21, Amusing – Not so much.
Maybe we should describe ourselves with carefully selected words others have used to describe us. For example, the kick ass Milwaukee band ifihadahifi once referred to us in a blog as “. . . friends . . . .” Steve’s cousin Jordan once wrote that we remind him of a forklift operator who stole his wallet to buy him drinks. Iggy Pop described the live sound as “Flying while elephants pound the earth.” Of course, it’s not clear as to whether he was referring to us specifically.
Maybe it’s best if we just rely on a little self-directed Q & A. Rock? Yes! Hard? We think so. How can I be sure? Well how about you just check it out for yourself.
