KISSER is the newest in rock n’ roll from the River City. Watch out for Herr on the skins. This demo does not reflect the work they did in the studio in late September with Jason Hutto.
http://kisser.bandcamp.com/ THE LITTLE BIG BANGSmade a splash in 2011, pushing its ’90s-influenced weirdo indie-rock in the faces of every barfly, reject and music fan in St. Louis. One might remember the band for cranking out an opening set for Hunx and His Punx at the Firebird or performing as the Velvet Underground on Halloween at El Leñador. The foursome packs a thick sound backed up by the solid beats of drummer Drew Gowran. The guitar players switch instruments on the fly, complementing a diverse set ranging from danceable psychedelia to hard-hitting punk rock. Jagged riffs and solid rhythms back up the gang-like vocal party, featuring the screaming voices of every band member—-Joseph Hess==THE RIVERFRONT TIMES
THE FUNS’ combination of deliberate, unbreakable drumming combined with melodious but sinister guitar work creates a sound that will surely have the masses citing early Sonic Youth. Except The Funs’ new s/t tape off of Manic Static provides a greater and more urgently engrossing tension than any Sonic Youth record I can recall. ” IMPOSE Magazine
