Anyone who read last week's 2013 Rock 'n' Roll Poll may have noticed the name "Music Band" popping up a time or two. Regular Cream readers may also recall that the former Ithaca kids have been described by The Spin on two occasions — once as "psych 'n' roll" and another time as just the sort of "under-25 Nuggets compilation tribute band you’ve come to know and enjoy."
But outside of some coverage here and there — not to mention last year's blues-punky Satan's Grave — what cold, hard proof do you have that Music Band is a real thing and not just some insouciant nod to a 30 Rock joke? Well now, thanks to The Written Record (a brand-new performance-video series filmed at Electric Kite Studio in East Nashville), you can feast your eyes on three songs and a bio from Music Band. Watch frontman Harry Kagan and his crew plow through "Can I Live," "Heart of the City" and "Still Life" above, and tell us if The Spin was right to compare Music Band to The Sonics, or if (as you've always suspected) The Spin is just full of shit.
