Giant Haystacks are a band from Oakland California that sound like they should be from San Pedro. Blunt Instrument is the name of their 12 song 19 minute new album. Blatant minutemen worship with a heavy nod to the anglo-funk that influenced them. If a thousand bands can imitate negative approach, why can't a few more bands imitate the minutemen? and this is by no means a bad thing. They have a CD and couple 7"s available (a live tape too) all available at their website.
The singer really sounds like D.Boon at times.
Short songs, good hooks. I would much rather listen to this than wait to hear Watt's bass solo on the new Kelly Clarkson.
Keeping the flame alive in 2007.
