Some of my friends can’t believe I love this band, considering my affinity for loud guitar and the song here being a great representation of the guitar-free (ok, there IS bass) genius of these guys.
Formed in Cambridge, MA in 1989 by bassist Mark Sandman (RIP) and saxophonist Dana Colley, the band’s existence was cut short when Sandman collapsed and died of a heart attack on stage in July 1999. Rightfully respected by both critics and contemporaries (Les Claypool has a Sandman sticker on his mic), check out this week’s WAV for a real treat as well as a simple, yet original sound.
Oh yeah…and enjoy Abysmally…
