Not the most original band out there, but they have an incredible energy and some serious chops that set them high above the fey, limp-wristed shit lady-musicians are doing these days. Good for them.

Good to know a little hype is all you need to be able to play 3000 cap rooms!

2 years from now they'll be playing Glasslands.

this might have been cool 30 some odd years ago, but at this point they're just aping a sound created well before they were even born.

I don't mind their music being derivative of good stuff of years past, but do they have to ape the look and fashion too?

Damn Terminel 5. I hate that place. Sound like shit, and the sight-lines are terrible.

If you're looking for an original guitar band in 2013, you're in for a world of hurt and disappointment. That's why everyone looks backwards...the medium is totally tapped out. Also, I ask this in all seriousness...I wonder if Ian Astbury is into this band?

Dude. I use my guitar in an original fashion as a decorative unit for a robust platter.

Savages are ok as far as tribute acts go but Van Halen cover bands always end being a lot more entertaining.

These sudden bursts of noisy guitars are really reminiscent of Sonic Youth, actually. Especially Eliminator Jr. comes to mind.
