He has replaced his once-deviant spirit for an ironic opposite. This punk turned himself into a musclehead. Perhaps this […]

Jam-band elites mesh innovative musical styles

Oysterhead The Grand Pecking Order In stores now Jam music fans must have asked each other what would happen if Phish, heirs to Grateful Dead’s jam throne, and punk-funk pioneers Primus got together and produced a record. Oysterhead’s The Grand Pecking Order arrives as the slightly unsatisfying answer to such queries. The Grand Pecking Order […]
