Hognose

Hognose

Stoner Rock, stoner, Rock and Roll, fuzz rock, psychedelic

They're perfecting a beastly new Southern Rock strain down in Texas these days. Bands such as Dixie Witch, Blood of the Sun, and Amplified Heat are tempering their metallic onslaught with classic rock and blues, for a big, bold, brash approach - exactly what you'd expect from that country... er, state. And Hognose might just be the best of the bunch. On El Sombrero, the band's second CD, the foursome gear-jams its way through eight songs of fresh Texas whup-ass.
