(released 2004, SF)
A band that kicks off its first song on its debut album with shouting over broken bottles is something that everyone should want to hear. It’s the classical of the 21st century. Leonardo was drawing rhombicuboctahedrons and peasants were picking black plague out of their ears and eye holes. You see what I mean? It’s apples and oranges. You’ve got 3 bay Area dudes that like beer and skateboarding or vice versa. Sounds kind of like you, doesn’t it? And you can relate to you. So relate to this…in 2004, Flash Airlines Flight 604 crashes into the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt, killing all 148 aboard…in 2004 The CIA admits that there was no imminent threat from weapons of mass destruction before the 2003 invasion of Iraq…and in 2004, Hightower released their debut S/T album for sale on hamburgereyeland.com, where it still resides. Coincidence? I’ll let you be the judge. BE THE JUDGE!
