Crystal Antlers. I'm pretty sure the band started in some garage in Westminster, CA. Or at least one of the members is from the town with the best pho this side of the Pacific Ocean.
They now officially call themselves a Long Beach band. It helps to make sure your on the other side of the Orange Curtain. Otherwise you might get mixed up with bands like Slightly Stoopid and inflict the subsequent damage by association. I could care less where your band is from. It's the music dummy. That's all that matters.
I always thought these guys were trying to be the "New Doors". And I kind of dug that. However, in the early years I noticed that their songs were very similar sounding. They were very wild, clashing and busy songs. Which made them hard to differentiate. I kind of thought this might keep them from progressing - but obviously I have been proved wrong. This band has gotten quite far over the past few years.
