Ward Dotson's Liquor Giants, a band I was in briefly in their NYC incarnation. One of the most under-appreciated Pop bands of the last 20 years or whatever. Like a much poppier Paul Westerberg. Great melodies, lyrics, playing and production.
God I love these guys. Even if they did just record the same LP 4 or 5 times. One of my 5 Favorite bands of the last 20 years, saw them twice live and they sounded amazing, although they didn't look very...happy. Buy The La's (Deluxe) [Extra tracks, Import]
