Not All Bands Age Like Fine Wines
That’s not a secret. We have talked about plenty of bands who (we think) are past their prime. There are some that lost there their way, but got back on course, and improving while they’re at it. You have others who adapt to the times and, in some cases, go so far as two “sell out.” Then you have others who don’t give a shit about your wine and are just pretty much going to keep going as they always have. (For those of you in the cheap seats – I just described each of the three bands we review this week.) Oh! And Mr. Mike Clancey (now troop leader of Horror Scouts) joins us for the live review!
