political good music.
last night at the rx bandits show
Location: Southern California.
Label: Drive Thru Records
Music/Style: Strong political and social messages through intese lyrics. Has evolved from strong ska roots into completely indescribable style. Definately not an emo
The Rx Bandits are the most amazing live band I have ever seen.
A California band that could be described as progressive ska, or post-hardcore ska. They are a heavily reggae-influenced band with some hardcore-ish use of chords and delicate, forceful riffs. Their lyrics range from political and social issues to emotional and relational issues.
They started out sounding alot like Sublime, Reel Big Fish, or No Doubt, but have expanded their sound to a truly psychedelic blend of stirred awesome, listing influences like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Bad Brains and Fugazi.
They rock, they jam, they think, they sing, they can PLAY.
Matthew Embree – vocals, guitar
Steve Choi – guitar, keyboards
Steven Jess Borth II. – saxophone, keyboards, backing vocals
Chris Sheets – trombone, backing vocals
Joseph Troy – bass
Christopher Tsagakis – drums
The RX Bandits are a very good band. They are so thoughtful and musically sophisticated, yet also pleasant to listen to, and good to rock out to.
jezus..ppl are stupid..of course there not punk..and they are not emo wither ...there ska.. ppl are stupid these day..and byt he way..rx bandits kick ARSE
ska...not punk or emo
A band that is pretty good. But they're defitintely not punk coz if you look at the lyrics to some of their songs, they're expressin themselves, so they're what you call emo. And nothing's wrong with Emo
Person: Who the hell is RX Bandits?
Person 2: They're an emo band, idiot!
