…. And They Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead… Amplifiers?!
Everything’s bigger in Texas. That’s how the saying goes, and these words were never more true than this past week when British indie rockers Band of Skulls brought their own particular brand of mayhem to the Lone Star state. Performing at the annual SXSW Festival they left audiences with their jaws agape and a trail of Fender amplifier heads in smoke. Taking a page out of the playbook of the Who’s Pete Townshend at the historic Monterrey Pop Festival, Band of Skulls guitarist Russell Marsden managed to destroy four Fender amps in the course of two nights, admittedly through no fault of his own. Unlike the classic rocker, this was not an instance of premeditated theatrics, but it nevertheless serves as an indication just how fiery and passionate a Band of Skulls set can get. So yeah, everything’s bigger in Texas… including the destruction of amplifiers.
