almost famous


Jake's band got a review in the newspaper! And not the little bitty local newspaper, either! And, please notice, I'm mentioned, kinda sorta.
Screaming Babies, a political punk rock trio in the vein of The Clash, was a crowd favorite. A potent mix of high-energy guitar, dissident vocals and driving drum beats, the band got the crowd skanking. A passionate, heartfelt cover of Elvis Costello's "Welcome to the Working Week" marked the birthday of the bassist's mother while the Clash's "White Riot" solidified Screaming Babies' punk rock roots. Though the crowd had thinned by its set, Screaming Babies still put on a wild show.
Can you see the glow surrounding my house from where you are? That's me, beaming.
Incidentally, they thought of their band name one night when they were practicing at our house. Lydia's latest trick was growling and from that came "Screaming Babies."

I had to check the link for skanking, because, honestly, I guess I'm too old or too out of it to know...skanky in my world is like a dirty whore...

Nice write up! And great name!
