-In a recent feature, lead singer Eric Earley professes his love for Big Star and says his "favorite records no.'s 1 and 2 are Tonight's the Night and Wowee Zowee". Man after my own heart right there.
-Their genre-hopping rivals that of Ween (not really), so it should make for a lively show.
Why they might lose:
-I've only heard their latest album, which could make air guitarring to earlier stuff difficult.
-Illegitimate love child of Marc Bolan and David Bowie.
-I know all of his songs, so air guitarring along to each one will be a piece of cake.
-"Cocksucker Blues". 'Nuff said.
Why he might lose:
- I've heard all of his songs. All 10 of them.
-I've seen him before, may ruin element of surprise.
So there you have it folks, the stage is set for an epic battle royale, cage match, vicious cock fight, or what have you. Who do you think will win? Leave your predictions in the comments.
