The Blind Shake
It's a damned shame that the Blind Shake aren't in charge of of everything...in the universe. And yeah, we could sit here and mope about how they aren't, or we could celebrate what they do, which is a heck of a lot. Let's start with "rock your pants off," because that's at the top of the list. The Blind Shake's newest album, Seriousness, is white-hot heat, lasered into one central beam and then stuffed into an auditory ray gun to be blasted off into the eardrums of children, mothers, and fathers alike. Someone told us that Marie Antoinette, shortly before the guillotine, was given the choice of being beheaded or having to sign a document attesting that the Blind Shake aren't amazing live.... Obviously she chose correctly. Oh, and Nobunny is playing? And Teenage Moods? Lucky ducks! (Photo by John Behm)
