Like a dirty Firebird with SST tapes on the floorboards.

Biography

With a live show that simply slays, Justin Hughes (Rock*a*Teens, Batata Doce), Chris Strawn (Brass Castle), Brandi Turner (Ricer) and Keefe Justice (The Close) are Glen Iris. Their tunes scramble together hungover ideas and inspiration, refurbished hooks & dual licks and enough poundcake to feed their rock and roll with rusty razor riffing and subtle psyche melodies which infest the band's upcoming new LP. Led Zep comparisons of course will soon follow (the single "Horseless" is a cousin to "Misty Mountain Hop", while "Valley of Eyes" borrows subtly from "Hots on for Nowhere") but the band probably has more in common with Hound Dog Taylor & the Houserockers, 1987-era Butthole Surfers and even Sleep's HOLY MOUNTAIN lp than any early-70's Brit shit.
