Sounds of Hopscotch #5: Flesh Wounds
Hopscotch is a long weekend-long festivus of musical goodness, and the closer it gets the more excited I get about it. The lineup is so good that I won't be able to see all of the wondrous bands I'd like to, dangit. Sounds of Hopscotch shares the bands that I've got my eye on, and that regardless of whether or not you'll be in Raleigh for the fest, you really ought to get to know as well.
The three-headed monster that is Flesh Wounds is collectively no stranger to the scene in the Triangle. But Flesh Wounds is relatively new on the block, mind you, you wouldn't know it from listening to their music. Not only do I like them for the obvious Monty Python reference (ok, maybe just obvious in my head and the heads of those who love Monty Python), but their sounds also appeal. Messy in the best of ways, louder than all get out, and possessing lots of devil-may-care snarl, I envision all sorts of sonic calamities transpiring when Flesh Wounds takes the stage.
