I don't know how The Whigs escaped my radar. They're from Georgia. I love Georgia. They rock. And I usually enjoy those who rock.
This is the first Whigs' song I fell in love with
The Whigs - Technology
The simple phrasing, the silly and nonplussed lyrics, and that break! Isn't that break amazing?! I can't wrap my head around it.
What's even more amazing is that the Whigs were once named the "best unsigned band in America" by Rolling Stone Magazine. Relentless touring and a rad self-released/financed album, Give 'Em All a Big Fat Lip, helped the Whigs build an audience, and it wasn't long before ATO snapped them up. Today the guys release their ATO debut, Mission Control.
