Don Peyote's Pun-Loving Cantankerous Punk Metal

Posted by on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 10:22 AM

(Comet) Sometimes in this space, you pick a show to write about based on band names. Such is the case with Don Peyote. I don't know this Seattle group, but I'm a sucker for a pun, especially if it involves literary references and drugs. Based on the five songs I've heard, Don Peyote crank out cantankerous, heavy punk metal that wants to hurt you, badly. Their thuggish might, Lemmy-with-polyps vocals, and oppressively dense, search-and-destroy guitar/bass attack recall the most ornery artists on the Touch & Go and Amphetamine Reptile labels. One track is titled "Bob Loblaws Law Blog," which is poetry. Go see Don Peyote, and don't forget the codeine-enhanced aspirin.

Most awesome song title that references a narrative element from Arrested Development!

While I don't doubt that you had not heard of this band and were writing this Up & Coming based on their fun name, you should probably be aware that Don Peyote's guitarist, Pamela Sternin, is your music intern.

AND she's been in more bands than you can shake a stick at, most of which ought to have been written about on line out before. She's rad. Band's rad. the end.

good write up!
