Indeedy, have you ever seen them live? I've heard it's amazing even though they don't move much. They came to town, but I can't believe I missed them, I didn't find out they came until like a month later.

LIGHTNING BOLT are fucking great! Live is really the only way to see them man. It's like no other. It's so fantastic. To get a good feel for what it's like check out their dvd " The Power of Salad & Milkshakes."

I think allmusic.com had the perfect despcription of the band, comparing their sound to "a really, really hot chick beating you to death w/ a baseball bat". It's so true, because the music is very melodic and upbeat, but pummeling.

Am I the only one who likes Ride the Skies more than Wonderful Rainbow? Just wondering...I like both, but for me I had to go back and listen to Ride the Skies after listening to Wonderful Rainbow to really make me a fan.

I find myself listening to Ride The Skies more often as well.
