And now we get gory (and frivolous)

Kate Bush? Girl groups and their deep roots in Colonial-era ballads?

C'mon, Shake Your Fist, don't you know what rock 'n roll is? Homoerotic avian bloodsport and monkey wasting disease!

Or, to put it another way, I'll see your dramatic diva and heartsick, story-telling gals and raise you a healthy helping of male maleness sent way-over-the-top.

Cock Fight - Six Finger Satellite

Simian Fever - Six Finger Satellite

(Actually, if I was forced to create some linkage between Kate, the Goodees and these boys, I'd say each of them are most talented at rendering their own brand of atmosphere. The Six Finger guys tend toward the darker side of things, but they undercut their own efforts at post-Big Black vileness with a dash of silly that makes them tolerable and, I'd argue, endearing.)

Yes! It's been a long time since anybody's said much about 6FS, and these songs most definitely rule. Good show!

Ha! I was thinking the same thing, J, and even had a brash(ish) lil London punk band in the queue. I'm a girly girl for sure, but I promise to devote a few posts to noise in the near future. You know I can.
