Who do you sound like?
When Marion Keisker at Sun Studios asked Elvis Presley this question in
1954, he replied "I donšt sound like nobody." We wish we were that original
(and that cool). Still, we like to see ourselves as continuing the
tradition of the great rock bands (like The Replacements or Uncle Tupelo)
who could combine thoughtful songwriting with fun, intense music. If we
pull that off -- mission accomplished.
