We named our band after well known sticker growin up in the 60's that we used to put on our banana seat bicycles. Our drummer uses a FORD sticker on his bass drum and our lead singer alters his voice sometimes with a Speco Bullhorn. I don't want to stir up any trouble with your guys music which I myself personally love the whole overall quality of the grateful dead in full effect is the most harmonic sound and very amazing overall unlike anyone in the industry. I play in one of the last surviving bands from the grunge era.
I just don't want to cause any troubles with that can't stand the style of music in which we play in comparison to the dead which actually makes me embarrassed to be so in the dark about quality of sound and all the amazing things I've heard. Mostly 80's dead and some from the tour in europe in the early 90's.
The best and most likely only thing we have in common with the dead is we couldn't stand media and record companies and their evil ways. We have 3 lp's that went platinum starting from our first in 92. We lived in the back of a van drinking beer and sleeping with our gear. Our fans made us what we are today and won us several awards on MTV and AMA.
