I'm really digging BRONCHO right now. I heard about them through an effects pedal company and like what I heard of them before their album was released. I'm not generally into the late garage rock/early punk stuff, but BRONCHO had an authenticity and urgency that kept me listening. I supposed it didn't hurt to learn that Unwed Sailor members Jonathan Ford and Nathan Price were in the band too. But no matter what I think of the members' other projects, it doesn't mean that they can automatically sell me on their new projects.
I caught them at the Vaudeville Mews on Tuesday. Singer Ryan Lindsay spied my t-shirt from half a block away and we began talking right away. We drank copious amounts of drinks at and the band was gracious enough to geek out with me about gear and our favorite bands. Ford even politely suffered my telling him that he was one of my all-time favorite bass players.
I dig that the songs are blistering fast; nothing on the album lasts longer than 2.5 minutes, and there isn't a dull one among them. I think the band is making a video for every song on the album, which makes sense because they're all singles.
I'm thinking about driving to Iowa City tonight to catch them again.
