Cougar: In Their Own Words

Posted By on Wed, Jan 24, 2007 at 1:27 PM

Scene's much-mourned Money Where Your Mouth Is column — in which the music geeks shut up and let the bands talk for themselves -- makes a spectacular return with Wisconsin's Cougar. Band: Cougar Hometown: Madison, WI Sounds like: "Four Tet, Fugazi and Nick Drake playing rock-paper-scissors. Also sounds like: Emergency Rock. Also a condition of: Rescue Culture." Fun fact: "'Law' is not oblique or abstract, but a direct reference inspired by guitarist Trent Johnson, a practicing attorney." Playing Where & When: The Grog Shop. 9 p.m., Sunday, January 28, $8 (all ages). With Home and Garden. Why You See Them: "You are sick of bands with good haircuts, faces, indie fashion sense, and singers." -- drummer D.H. Skogen (also of the kick-ass Youngblood Brass Band, the Midwest's premier marching band-rap-rock fusion outfit.
