You’ve never heard of Varsity Heroes? Dang.
Well, they were a pretty big deal.
The guitar player’s kid brother once met Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects outside of the Campbell Gaslighter. I think he was in a band called Jesus Abs, or something like that. Good band. Kid could play, that’s for sure.
Flash forward a few years. Chris -the guy who had his makeup done by Maroon 5- now plays for this band called Talkie...from Fremont, I think -about 30 miles outside of San Francisco. I'm pretty sure they once played on the same stage that the Grateful Dead played on. They put out an album called Hablas a few years back. It’s not for everyone. I enjoyed it though. And then just last year, they came out with some nu-disco, soul trash. Like they’re Daryl Hall & John Oates or something. Fundamental Things, they called it. A lot more synth than I prefer. The 80’s sucked and kicked all the jam-bands outta LA.
I hear they just finished up another new record. Pretty quick turnaround from that last record, if you ask me. Supposedly they brought back the fuzzy guitars. Everything Matters, or something like that. Not sure why that matters. Nobody listens to records anymore -especially Rock records. You know, I’ve actually been getting into podcasts a lot lately.
