I've been listening to them A LOT!!!

On their debut album they have 3 songs that sound like they were ripped from the basement vaults of Led Zeppelin. Actually the first time I heard "Flower Power" I really thought it was some lost track that I hadn't heard of that was unearthed...that's a near impossibility with my library of music.

There are other songs where I hear Janis Joplin and the Big Brother Holding Company and one that has elements of early Rush circa Fly By Night/ Caress of Steel.

The future is so bright for them and I am thankful that someone picked up the Hammer of the Gods and decided to do something with it besides synthesize it or autotune it. Good old fashioned Rock is very hard to come by. I want to see them live so bad but they're only coming to Miami or Jacksonville and I'm smack dab in the middle with a complicated busy life. oh well...I'll see them somewhere!

Radio today sucks so bad. Here you have a true blue rock band and not one station in the Grand Rapids area plays them. Support our music for Gods sake. The only station I here them regularly on is WQON out of Grayling and I have to listen to them on the net.

Corporate Radio sucks.
Support the band by buying the material online!!! That's what I did!

I just don't understand why some people hate them!
Have you not heard them!?


;)

Ok, fair question, here's my answer. One listen was all I needed to hate them. The music sounds good, bass, guitars, drums.. all sound fine, but also sound like they are a clone of about 3 different bands from the 70's, most obvious being LZ.

Then there's this dildo:

Want to know why some of us hate them, more than them trying to be LZ clones, this kid is fucking awful. I mean, nails on a chalk board awful. I mean, masturbating with a cheese grater awful. I mean, ice picks in my ear canal would hurt less. His vocals are among the most annoying I have ever heard in my life. Not just that i don't like them... no, I reserve "I don't like them" for a long list of boring AF singers like Thom Yorke from Radiohead. Bruce Springsteen's vocals suck, but he's a lead singer of a GD angelic choir compared to Josh.

Then there are the interviews and his stage persona. I'd rather watch Oprah hump a hippo. I'd rather watch a Jerry Springer marathon, back to back with a Maury Povich marathon. I'd ALMOST rather go blind than watch that kid on stage or in front of a camera.

I have yet to really listen to them, I've heard little snippets here and there. I can't make up my mind whether I like them or not.
