Last Of The Juanitas

Year: 2000
Label: Flapping Jet

When the instru-metal world is ball's deep in "post metal" boredom, and the only alternative seems to be tongue-in-cheek "ironic" NWOBHM throwbacks, allow me to introduce Last Of The Juanitas who blaze out of Portland via San Diego via the Arizona desert, and boy, do they sound like it. Their first album included a member of Drive Like Jehu, and that influence still abounds, but now they've tempered their Unwound meets early eighties Orange County hardcore sound with some NW grunge. It's math rock coated with sludge, sprinkled with punk. 

I'm still working out the kinks...figuring out this here computer and all, so bear with me.
Also, thanks to the Shiny Grey Monotone staff for allowing me on board.
