COUGARS (Hot Stove Jimmy/ Big'n, members of Haymarket Riot)
Three members lighter (no more horns and keys) and barely enough motivation or time to finish a third record, COUGARS still give repeated kicks to the balls with every, albeit sparse, live appearance. Loud as fuck, dense as British Petro and tighter than your lil' sistas snatch, these guys still deliver the goods. Come get your dick kicked in and get soaked in blood, sweat, spit and scotch. Chang!
