That was the sound of a tool chest... falling down the stairs.
In the Midwest, being whipped is conditioned modesty—the product of being worn out, exhausted and beat silly by grey waves of austerity. Whipped is a reaction to that silence, that fear of expression and honesty. It is the tension created by complacent walls of sound contrasting joyful chords that can break your skin.
NATO COLES & THE BLUE DIAMOND BAND (of Used Kids, Radio Faces, Modern Machines)
Nato Coles plays in some punk bands, but from time to time he'll also pull out the old acoustic and rock some jams that exemplify his life motto: Rock others as you would like them to rock you. Sometimes he acoustically rocks with others. This is often referred to as a band. Sounds confusing, right? Stop over thinking it.
