Bonehead 11/04  by Maria

In the 90’s when people thought that Rock and Roll was fading out, Seattle’s underground grunge emerged. The 90’s music was all about Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Sound Garden to name a few. Who could forget the deep, dark, raspy sound of Kurt Cobain and Eddie Vedder or Scott Wylan and Chris Cornell?

Despite their dirty, unwashed look, their music is nothing close to stinky. Dark, melancholy and riveting are the adjectives I picked for their sound.

Throw away the dirty, unwashed look and keep the deep raspy sound of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Bush, you’ll end up with a cover band named BONEHEAD.

I saw the guys at Finnigan’s Wake back in August and the lead singer blew me away with his talent. His eyes were close for almost the entire set, passionately singing every song. His style and voice captivated the audience. He wasn’t animated or energetic, but his husky voice and passive demeanor got people off.

The lead singer has the Kurt Cobain aura that enticed the crowd to listen and “feel” the music of the dead artist. Hey, this band can also knock your socks off with their covers of Godsmack, Velvet Revolver, Metallica and with their very own original songs.

More to come... Pictures, line-up and achievements in the future.
