In Which the Scene Music Staffers Stop Debating the Relative Authenticity of Avril Lavinge and Let a Band Speak for Itself
Band: The Diffficult
"Vintage postpunk/indie pop. What Wire might have sounded like if they were trying to sound like the Kinks, yet never actually had listened to the Kinks nor fully conceived the concept of Wire and therefore ended up sounding like neither Wire nor the Kinks."
"One of us used to write for Beavis and Butt-Head."
"The Lime Spider (207 S. Main St., Akron, 330-3762-2350) Thursday May 24. With The High Strung (ingenious Detroit pop) and The Same Things (young Akron heartthrobs)."
