“Life Is Here”
Blank Check, Volume 1
You love your funk with a heavy rock kick? Listen to Bizzythowed. Man, this guy places a mean fricking guitar. Blistering. With Bizzy on guitar/vocals, Teddy on Bass, and Marco on drums, Bizzythowed throws together a sound without reference points, because it is so original and new. They call themselves funk/punk/rock, and I can think of no better title. They sound a little like the Red Hot Chili Peppers mixed with Living Colour, with some Toni Iommi guitar and a little Slash. All I know is Bizzythowed kicks major ass. According to Mass Appeal, Blank Check Volume I is:
“an audio representation of a ’90s Bonnie and Clyde driving in a hot-wired jalopy through the Sonoran Desert. “
The power is there, the voice is there, the guitar is amazing, the rhythm section is outstanding: Bizzythowed is an amazing band. Check them out. (Oh, and the picture of Bizzy walking away with his guitar slung over his back is so Spaghetti Western/Sergio Leone/Eastwood connotations that fit perfectly with the bands sound.)
Incredible article. Very insightful; agree on all topics.
I love the way you described this music; really enjoyed reading your viewpoint.
