I Am Ahab

I Am Ahab


Sludgey garage rock.


I Am Ahab is laid back, psychedelic,balls to the wall sludge rock .The live set is a blend of groovy undeniably catchy breakdowns and grunge rock songs. The riffs had been toyed around with in our musical repetroire until they began to snowball into actual songs that took on their own personalities. We really started getting serious and routinely practicing throughout 2005 with various band members coming and going. Eventually we decided to stick with the 3 piece line up of familiar friends because we all loved the songs more than anyone else and have a blast playing it. The typical I Am Ahab set is a mix of balls out hard rock instrumental ditties and laid back, folky garage style songs with somewhat melodic raspy vocals. We try to maintain a good flow and balance between the two throughout our show. We love to have a good time with our audiences and give them the much needed unfiltered rock they deserve.
Clutch is a big influence, Karma to Burn, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, HOVEL, Soundgarden, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine The Melvins.

Set List

We'll generally open with an instrumental warm up song that rocks hard and catches the audiences attention. We then proceed to belt out the songs we've created in whatever order we feel like playing them. Throwing in our versions of Jethro Tull's "Locomotive Breathe", The White Stripes "Hotel Yorba" and the occasional Billy Squier's "The Stroke" for fun.
