Discography: June 2005 Shrimp Has a Death Wish EP Feb 2006 Zinger EP April 2006 Self Titled LP September 2006 Ice Machine LP August 2007 Already On One LP Influences include Mudhoney, Spacemen 3, Karp, Fugazi, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Silkworm, Minutemen, Wire, Black Flag, Yo La Tengo. Reviews A pure-power trio, Six Star General delivers jagged, angular riffs in the vein of Wire, but with the swagger and punch of Black Flag. The simple lyrics beg to be chanted loudly in bars and the songs don't hang around long enough to indulge in solos, but for fans of powerful guitar rock, this is definitely one to check out. -Providence Monthly Ice Machine Review * April 2007 Old school indie rock that hearkens back to the time when indie rock had balls. Recorded in four hours with no overdubs, this 11-song monster is a groove-a-rama in the vein of early Minutemen and Yo La Tengo, with lots of wah-wah, savage bass-drum rhythms, and angular brawn. -Providence Phoenix Ice Machine Review * December 2006.
