And for me too! If you havenít met their acquaintance yet, meet The Hives. Mixing post-grunge sound palisade with early British invasion, these guys rock. Forget that their sound has been likened to White Stripes and The Strokes, they present a complete and rounded style that surpasses all peers. Listen to tracks like Knock, Knock and Main Offender and you are transported to a time when music was raw, real and rockiní.
Despite the fact that their most recent American release was 2000, they continue to influence the music scene with a style that is both genuine and profound. How they could spawn from Sweden is beyond me as I could swear that they are the love child of the Rolling Stones and the Sex Pistols, but Iíll take the surge where I can get it.
In closing, Iíll say that my iPod is loaded with every track theyíve cut and there is no artist getting more play in my headset. Check em out. You wonít be disappointed.
This is my old project, THROWDOWN.
A group of friends and I put together this little project in 2003 as an outlet of out collective rage and anger about the
subjects that each of us cared about. I was the editor-and-chief and games writer back then.
It was a blast to do and it to be involved in a great collaborative effort using the strengths of my friends was simply amazing. I hope you have fun reading our
work as much as we had in creating it.
