But Glen, what about those of whose hearts are not lost in the 70's.
But seriously, there is a value to the Monoxides. They organize
shows. The Eric's Trip farewell concert was due in great part to the
involvement of Ken, the drummer, who managed to get a big enough
venue in the form of the MacNaughton Center, got Sloan to come on
over, and just generally organized a very fitting final Eric's Trip
And HC5, with Rick White on vocals, and all the Monoxides (save for
Ken? I'm not sure, it was like that the time I watched) doing MC5
covers is ridiculous good fun.
But their own songs are pretty goofy.

I'd rather not talk about Sandbox. They're like dumb relatives you
relegate to another room at family get-togethers. If you were really
brutal, you'd douse them with cyanide while you were at it.
