Band shifts into full speed with strange, saucy sound
They're Fivespeed. Relatively unique sounding. Amazingly clean for the local scene. Decent. Really decent. They've played with Jimmy Eat World and Chris Cornell's brother, and they're headed for TRL. (OK, so, maybe they're not headed for Totally Retarded Losers isn't that what TRL really stands for?)
