Another completely fantastic band from Seattle, Minus the Bear's music is generally classified as alternative punk. The name references an old TV show, "BJ and the Bear", if you were to subtract the bear from this expression, you would be left with a BJ
. With insanely clever song titles such as "Houston, We Have Uh-Oh", "Thanks for the Killer Game of Crisco Twister", and "I Lost All My Money at the Cock Fights", this fine group of musicians mainly sings about drugs, women, and booze because they know the meaning of life.
After becoming familiar with Minus the Bear's music, the various track names often tend to become a part of one's regular speech patterns.
Minus the Bear consists of:
Jake Snider- Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
David Knudson- Lead Guitar
Cory Murchy- Bass
Erin Tate- Drums
Alex Rose- Keyboards
Erin Tate is quite possibly the best drummer ever. Never mind that he is at least half god.
