Children's Programme "Fake" Band Smackdown, Intermission
(Revisit Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3A)
Just when I thought I wouldn't be having one of my "intermissions" . . . I'm a little embarrassed to say that work has been getting the better of me (but compensating me adequately!) and that I'll have to put off the second half of the Final "Fake" Four until next week. But in the meantime, you can still vote for another "fake" band and get an entry for the June Giveaway.
vs. Iron Weasel vs. Love Handel
So far, most of the "fake" bands we've looked at have been young--which should be no surprise, as they are from children's programmes! But today I present two new bands buck that trend . . . in order to reflect that other trend of middle-aged rock stars extending their coolness into another decade. =P Iron Weasel is a "vintage rock" group whose remaining members hired their biggest fan to replace their original lead guitarist. (What musical fan hasn't had a fantasy like that?) In contrast, Love Handel is a band which made it big in the 80s, fizzled out just as quickly, and reunited years later with all the awkwardness you'd expect . . . just in time for the anniversary of two people who met and fell in love during one of their early concerts.
The Rafflecopter is embedded after the jump. If you have anything to say about the bands or their shows, please leave a comment as well. And before I forget . . . yes, Mystik Spiral totally crushed Jesse and the Rippers last week!
