Our music sounds like what a soothing blend of aromatic teas spiked with jalopenos would taste like.

Biography

The General, Robert France and Drone City grew up together in a duplex in the City of Brotherly Love and have been playing together since their formative teenage years. Their sound has evolved and matured into a mixture of passive and aggressive tendencies, cryptic song writing, and non-traditional arrangements. Their songwriting influences are derived heavily from the Britpop genre and their screaming guitar bursts are reminiscent of early Sonic Youth. The Admiral has added his unique take on pocket bass lines punctuated by apropriately-spaced solos. The General adds heavy toms and cymbal play and refuses to play a dance beat. Our live shows are always entertaining and never planned.
