Song of the Day

Pine On


I’ve got some good old fashioned Rock & Roll for you guys today. Rick Froberg and his cult band Hot Snakes packed it in back in 2005 and D.C. power-punks Edsel have been gone even longer, but up from their ashes we have Obits…a blend of the best from both bands featuring Rick Froberg, Sohrab Habibion, Greg Simpson and Scott Gursky. Froberg still reminds me of a punked-out Mick Jagger with his pissed-off-at-everything vocals and Habibion’s surf-riff guitar work backed up by Gursky’s hammering drum beats has me thinkin’ this is what the Beach Boys might sound like if you gave ’em enough meth. ‘Pine On’ is from their latest album, I Blame You, and you can check ’em out on MySpace

  1. along w/ Hot Snakes, if you are in the mood to look backward i highly recommend Rick’s earlier bands, Drive Like Jehu and Pitchfork (before the name got appropriated by a bunch of dickheads who slag music).
