The Gay Blades



So what the hell is trash pop? It's what's New Jersey's The Gay Blades make and it sounds damn good. Apparently, it's "what happens when two keenly observant wanna be hipsters write songs the same pair couldn’t possibly pull off live, and make up for their missing bass player with consistent TNT-like performances and a heaping spoonful of swagger." If this sounds complex to you, take it as that. Spazzy and bombastic guitar rock takes a witty indie edge with The Gay Blades, and their self-released full-length Ghosts is halfway between a cock rock parade and a Broadway musical - in a VERY good way. AP user cajuncork let us know what was up. He's awesome for this reason.

Read a review for Ghosts over here. You can also listen to tracks from Ghosts at their myspace. Upcoming shows are listen below.
