(think ) ****
In the design tradition that gave us James, Travis, Brad along with george — and also at regards to the amount of Daves in stone (Grohl,” McCormack et al) — Newcastle’s dave the group do their bit to maintain’90s slacker stone (and rings with boys’ titles ) living. They station bands of this age out of Jebediah (Get Smart) into Custard (the Wild Okay!) . Then there is the inspo-rock of Brave (“Only because you are scared does not mean that you can not be courageous”) along with also the pendular guitar chime of Capsule.
