17 minutes of pure, indulgent rock & roll bliss, courtesy of both Iron Butterfly and PowerPop Blog: One of the most indulgent rock songs ever. It is 17:05 minutes long and has a grand total of only 30 different words in this song. You might think it has a deep, mystical meaning, but it’s really […]
Thanks kindly to Ralph Schaarschmidt for introducing me to Trigger Cut, a band that sounds like The Jesus Lizard, Die Haut, and a reformed Big Black slowing their sound a bit into something more manageable, yet equally powerful, as their speedy stuff. This has punch.
