NEW PEOPLE WRESTLING BEARS
Thanks to MetalSucks Maniac Jon Dolente for tipping us off that there’s been some line-up changes in the IWRESTLEDABEARONCE camp. On the band’s MySpace blog, guitarist Steven Bradley explains in typically Lokian fashion:
“Being on tour and signing to a label and being poor and living in a van for all of eternity and blah blah isn’t for everyone. you’ve probably noticed that most full-time touring bands go through member changes and.. well.. shit happens.. we still love john/brian/ryan, but life goes on and iWaBo will continue until we all fall apart or die in an epic van/plane crash!
“that said.. we have 3 new members that you might not recognize from the original line-up and the “tastes like kevin bacon” video! after much searching, we feel that we have found the perfect touring/writing line-up and i don’t think things will be changing again.
“first is mikey on drums… mikey is a sexual beast and enjoys long walks on the beach as well as spooning.
“next is mim on guitar… she is krysta [Cameron]’s sister and she shreds balls. period. the end.
“anndd finally we have dave on bass. he is a beast and makes love to the bass like it’s an underage malaysian prostitute.”
I’m not that worried about these changes; for one thing, I think it’s fair to say that Steven and vocalist Krysta Cameron have very much been the driving creative force behind this band up ’til now, and as long as they’re still in the band, “it’s all gravy,” as my former drug dealer used to say.
For another thing, I really like the idea of having another woman in the band. Maybe it’ll make all the asswipes who think that having a female lead singer in a group otherwise full of sweaty farting metal dudes is a gimmick shut the fuck up. Plus, I once had the pleasure of watching Krysta and Mim interact in conversation, and I’m fairly certain they’re certifiably fucknuts, in the best possible way; they, like, speak their own language or some shit. So the band’s live shows probably just got that much crazier.
