Slater, IA, USA
Great Pacific Northwest band. Heavy but still hook-laden. Recommended for fans of Superchunk, Hot Snakes, Racetrack, USS Horsewhip, Bottomless Pit, etc.
Cons: Those of us in the midwest don't get to see them very often. Hopefully that will be changing soon.
Quite possibly the greatest show of all time. Better than Seinfeld by miles, and that's saying something. Even better when you realize Larry David is ALWAYS right.
Cons: If you don't have HBO you have to wait too long between seasons. Solution: buy it on DVD and re-watch over and over.
