(Members From Botch, Harkonen, These Arms Are Snakes)

Initial 58

Released on August 12, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

As much a tribute to their hometown of Tacoma, Washington as a source for the most anthemic blue collar rock and roll hymns this side of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN's Darkness On The Edge Of Town, ROY could be Washington State's best indie rock band since the early 90's grunge explosion.

Including former BOTCH members Dave Verellen and Brian Cook (also of THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES) as well as current HARKONEN leader Ben Verellen among their ranks, ROY crafts killer jangly indie rock tunes that bring to mind favorites like BUILT TO SPILL, DINOSAUR JR., GUIDED BY VOICES and at times even NIRVANA. (No, we've never heard of NIRVANA either.) While this might seem like a vast departure from the members' other bands, ROY's honest and stripped-down approach will have you humming along and pumping your fist in no time.

Dave from Waterloo, ON Canada 
Jan 23 2007 Rating: 3/5 Stars

This is actually Dave Norman from Whitby/Guelph/Waterloo ONATRIO and Stow OHIO.

This is post-Botch?!?!?!?! Well I fucking love it. The singer from Botch is the drummer and the bassist from Botch is the Singer/Guitarist, and this ep is fantastic. Think of Rocky Votolato meets the Weakerthans with slower and more intricate instrumentals. The lyrics are fantastic also, which depict the comatose mentality of people living in Tacoma (smart ep title by the way) and this can be seen in almost every city in North America. The first track blows my mind.

I like Roy alot. It's sexy music. Full of sarcasm and cynical lyrics that make me laugh, too. Good investment in my opinion.
