Oh, yeh, I've still got some SXSW bands yet to post. I just don't know how you're taking to the whole SXSW gig I've been doing and don't want to overdo it. I remember liking Capetown's The Dirty Skirts (pic) and pointed visitors toward the excellent The Muso because I didn't have a link. Now I do, so voila. The Hedrons are not covering AC/DC here, but that's okay, they're sufficiently hot. As for Oxford Collapse, I don't often go for the amusical hyperscreech so beloved of many indie bloggers, not to mention the overlong intro, but the rootsy guitar riffs pull this one back from the edge. Well, santa caca, look at me just opining away like I'm a real blogger or something. Ya basta.
