no. well, maybe a little ... only in as much as they are really good
musicians and have that sort of led zeppelin-esque "jam-out" tendency.
but there are no puffy shirts, songs about mysticism or anything like
that. the rome plows are great ... they mix drive like jehu/jesus lizard
intensity and virtuosity with big ups to zeppelin, sabbath and jsbx and
all their trash rock brethern. they even have a song called "thanks to
the blues explosion."

> The article on Christopher Robin Device sounded interesting, anyone have any
whiny boys from yarmouth with acoustic guitars. heather harkins seems to
adore them. i guess they are quite somber, but i've only heard a couple
songs, and i wasn't very impressed. they had to change their name from
"christopher robin" because of the amazing seattle band of the same name
(who recently changed their name to function of hornets, so i guess CRD
could go back if they wanted...). the original (read: seattle) band is
nothing like the yarmouth variety, so do not be alarmed if you happed to
stumble upon a christopher robin record which contains powerful emo-core
stylings, rather than flaccid whininess (sp?). ;)
