This past weekend i ran to witness a slight smear of Lightning Bolt, me prettiest band. An hour drive to hear 35 minutes of thickrock noisypaste. One of me favorite flavors.
Brian Gibson once said the secret of their sound, and rock in general, was volume. Be loud, all else will fall into place. The prime ingredient of rock is to rock, and to rock you have to turn up that volume dial, loud enough to make your ribs wiggle like they had birds perched. Or your hat brim to vibrate, as mine did this past weekend. Without amplification, there would be no rock music, and one fewer lightning bolt.
