Nobody in their condition should be able to make music like this. . . The Slax sound as if The Who beat up The Cure, felt bad about it and bought them lunch. The Slax take you into the crepuscule and on a mad sleigh ride through post punk, driving rock and the craziest-ass blues song to come along in years (3 Inches). (Digital download- 99 cents, watching women's faces when this song gets played- frikkin' priceless.) With "Waveaux Nuevo", The Slax's debut CD from Natural Partners Records, harmonic tremors register on the musical Richter. The music is raw, stripped and honest. The pressure for the next CD builds, and will find release, in 2008's upcoming "Sophomore". Being a bunch of geeks, The Slax have also invented a weirdness that broadcasts live concerts over the internet from multiple locations with multiple bands. People have been saying. . . they shouldn't be able to do this stuff. . . The Slax began in 2002 as The Pantalones with Patrick Sprague on guitar/backing vox, Sean Mayercek on Bass and Lead Vox, and Andy Tafoya on Drums. Andy left in 2003 and was replaced by Tye Smith who also is a very capable back-up singer and Vitamin Salesman. After Changing and Consolidating their sound, they Anglicized their name (to avoid being mistaken for a mariachi band) and began work on their first full length Album 'Waveaux Nuevo'. Waveaux Neuvo will be released in late 2007. The Slax plan to begin performing in support of their new album using their unique internet technologies. These performances will begin around Spring of 2008.
