I saw these guys recently warming up for Ben Harper in Athens.
Felt like I wasted an hour I could have been outside walking around or something.
The band doesn't really jam, there's not really any guitar or other solos to keep things interesting, they are really loud but their sound was so terribly muddy that you couldn't hear the vocals at all.
If you have a band that has nothing going on instrumentally, and the sound is so bad that you can't hear the lyrics you don't have much to groove on.
Interesting was they did a number w/o the guitar and it was much clearer and I could hear some of the lyrics which seemed interesting, but as soon as he plugged back in it was just LOUD with no perks.
This made me worried about Ben Harper since his songs are so lyrical but his sound was killer. Even on the very loud numbers you could hear the lyrics.
