The Fucking Champs

“The Loge” by the Fucking Champs, from VI (Drag City):

The exact significance of a band name like the Fucking Champs may be oblique (are they the champs of fucking or are they the fucking champs?), but the message is clear: Our band gives your band a bad case of whiskey dick. In a landscape dotted with hideous, impotent unicorns posing as rock stars, the Champs are the sweet real tits of the music-geek underground. Refusing to be watered down by some pussy vocalist or buzzkill bassist, the instrumental trio utilizes a two-guitars-plus-drums attack to channel the devil-fisting frenzy of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy and Dokken.

The Fucking Champs, with Pride Tiger and the Diamond Heart Club. Wednesday, September 19, at the Record Bar.
