Tennessee is blowing up with incredible pop rock bands; The Royal Bangs from Knoxville being the latest to catch Wally's ear here at Soulfish Stew. I'd like to think they took the Bangs part of their name from me, but there's no relation. They played a show at The End last night and I'm sure you're kicking yourself now if you missed it. You say you've never heard of The Royal Bangs? Well, let's remedy that post haste. The Royal Bangs website is a little minimal at the moment, but there are some songs there. My favorite is Robotic Spiders Inside Your Secret Eye with its Bowiesque vocals. Completely charming and post modern rocking.
