QWAM – ‘Feed Me’ (EP review)

QWAM – ‘Feed Me’ (EP review)

Even punk bands can be “politically correct”. Well, to a certain extent that is. Take for example Brooklyn-based quartet, QWAM and the title of their debut EP, Feed Me, which easily could be called Fuck You since this mini-record’s five songs are are eight middle fingers raised against conformity and the establishment.

While that observation somewhat still applies, The Van T’s demonstrate on Laguna Babe that they are more than just an indie-rock band. Throughout the four […]
