I missed Santa Cruz co-touring with Moustache in Sweden earlier this year, and now they aren't coming here again for their new tour. Typical. -_- If I wouldn't have moved from Finland... But they seem to be pretty popular so I guess I'll have the chances to see them live at some point in the near future!

I. Fuckin. Love. This. Band.

What are your favourite tracks?
After seeing them live (HEAVYYYYY and AWESOOOOME), I fell in love with a bit different set:
- My Remedy
- Velvet Rope
- Let Them Burn
- Relentless Renegades (they didn't play this one though)
- (66)6 Feet Under
- Bonafide Heroes
- Aiming High
- We Are the Ones to Fall
- Bye Bye Babylon
- High on You

Oh screw it, I love all the songs.

I hope they release more 'SHRED TILL YOU DROP' videos!!

This is one of these cases where I don't want to listen to it because I'm just so put off by the hype :/

That's a shame, Ana.

A friend told me about them years ago and I totally forgot until this year. I don't know if you'd get into them that much just from the records. But on top of the good music, they have awesome videos that do their music justice. I would love to work on something crazy like that. There's a 'making of' video on YouTube for Wasted and Wounded.

Also, you may not like it but you certainly won't be disappointed as they are quality musicians

I guess I'll cave in eventually. And then probably get annoyed at myself for being late to the party :p

I'm going through this phase where I listen to dark themed hipster blues. go figure.

wow.... interesting comparison.
very, very, VERY different types of bands. Both great in their own way but I'd almost say they are at the opposite extremes of the "sleaze" sound.

Hm...well, maybe it's just me, as I am admittedly somewhat lost and confused in this genre anymore. But when I listened to the first song posted in this topic I immediately heard Dirty Penny's "Midnight Ride" mixed with "Runnin' Wild" mixed with one other song that I can't quite place, with a slightly more versatile sounding voice plus a Finnish accent.

Yea similar riffs but still musically quite different I think. Dirty Penny had good songs but they looked like the typical American high school footballer types of guys, which I always found very off-putting.

Fair enough. It was not so much their look but their attitude that seemed a little off to me. They gave off the feeling of "we're doing this because we think it's cool to have a band and be rock stars" as opposed to "we're doing this because our music is our passion and we love what we create." That makes a huge difference in the quality of a band, something distinct but intangible that isn't always obvious on the surface.
