Throw RagYeah, yeah, you've heard it before, but in this case it just happens to be true. Throw Rag is more than just a rock n roll band. Throw Rag are rock n roll! But let's be clear about something here; rock n roll, although essentially a thing of great beauty, is on whole, rather smelly and sweaty and dirty and will leave you with a hangover and a suspicious looking rash if you wake up with it the next day. Rock n roll doesn't care; it is its job not to care. So don't even think about complaining. For what it's worth, Throw Rag formed about eight years ago in Salton Sea, in the heart of the California Desert, the Mecca for all the worlds' tweakers and crazies. That in itself says a lot about the band. But you probably didn't see them back then and you almost certainly wouldn't have liked them. Far removed from the band they are today, Throw Rag were an excuse for nudity and carnage, with music (a kind of acoustic hillbilly punk think) as more of an afterthought. People came to see them in the same way they'll rubberneck a car wreck, people, who as vocalist Captain Sean Doe noted "appreciated someone dying in front of them more or less". Venues were less impressed and banned Throw Rag. But hell, what self-respecting rock n roll band hasn't been banned from somewhere. And let's not forget, Throw Rag are rock n roll.
