This has all been written about countless times in more detail by better writers but it all leads up to this...
Our band, The Bipolar Express has deep roots in the Dallas/Austin Garage Rock Scene (one of the world's best in my opinion) but please don't try to stick us in the Garage!
It's a bit of a cop-out to call us "Garage Rock" or even "Garage Punk"....not that I wouldn't be proud to be labeled as such, esp. as a shorthand means of description. It's just that we all listen to quite a large variety of music and we work hard to incorporate elements of it into our sound. Rather than your standard 3-chord Troggs riff over a farfisa (which I LOVE!) you might just hear a little bit of soul, r&b, psychedelia, spaced-out noise, blues (both jump and otherwise), 70s and 80s Punk, Tex-Mex, art-rock (if Captain Beefheart is art-rock that is!) and whatever the heck the Butthole Surfers were up to when they were still great.
Of course you might just call this delicious stew "noisy rock AND roll" like I do but come out to the show on June 26th and find out for yourself!
