this band had the most original and genious cd in the past 10 years and it will be a crime to keep them out of the hall

I'm not trying to make a case for this band's induction (maybe someday), but these guys and Big Business are really impressive examples of doing a lot with limited resources (two band members). If you happen across a copy of You're a Woman, I'm a Machine somewhere, I'd recommend getting it.

This was the most original band i had heard since nirvana. Sebastien Grainger's voice is unmistakeable and JFK's distorted wired richenbacher bass drove the song. Heads Up EP and Youre A Woman, Im A Machine are both CDs that i can listen to all the way through and enjoy every damn song! It's quite a shame that they didn't get signed to a bigger label. because if they did i have a feeling that the 2000's would have been taken over by them. but then again, im not sure if theyd have wanted that. This was the most original band i have ever heard and they will be missed

They WERE one of the few bands that seemed to be trying something new recently. I have to agree, they were sadly overlooked.

Saw this band perform at Voodoo Music fest in NOLA. Was about 3 songs into the set before I realized he's playing a bass guitar! Playing it like Angus Young. Could not believe the amount of sound these 2 guys put out.
