Teh Wind Knot has been on a musical nostalgia kick lately--ever since a buddy called to say that Cheap Trucker's Speed was having a reunion gig next month in Morgantown. We are skipping teh CTS reunion, since it would involve going to West Virginia. On purpose, of all things.
However, it did cause us look back to some of the bands from the formative years. In the interest of spreading the love, I give you one of my favorite bands of all time, Jason and the Scorchers:
Many of you will be too young to remember teh suckage that was 80's music. If you listened to the radio or went to record stores (some of you will remember radios sans satellites and record stores) there was nothing but Eurotrash, synthesizer, Flock of Seagulls crap. Fortunately there were a few good bands that kicked ass, although never really made it big. Jason was one of these. And, they were much better live. Probably responsible for at least four of TWK's top ten shows of all time.
