The Kicks – Nashville, TN
I know by now most of you read my idiocy feel like you know me.Â Donâ€™t get me wrong I think itâ€™s great.Â I get stopped on the street, â€œHey Wurds, you like that new ___________ (enter random band here)â€.Â To which I reply, nothingâ€¦I say nothing because I am a music snob.Â I donâ€™t talk to you laymen about your non-credible musical tastes.Â That is only when I am channeling my inner bad ass which occurs about as often as Mel Gibson rears his ugly anti-Semitic head, so donâ€™t fret.Â However, when I do, a band like The Kicks is the theme music in my head.Â Raw drums, heavy snare, killer toms, almost suburban garage music and big city tribal in its appeal, it riles me up.Â I did the same thing when I heard similar sounding bands like Jet or The White Stripes.Â These four dudes from Nashville infect a bit of harmony and a ton of soul and copious amounts of love into their infamous brand of rock.Â Oh and for the record, I donâ€™t really think that about those of you who are kind enough to read my musings.Â I am just doing it for The Kicks J
