Pitchforkmedia critic (and Medill alum) Marc Hogan got his mitts on a hot new release by a band from Delaware.
You’ll probably never read about a Wilmington, Del., “scene.” No Philly-style “Next Borough” New York Times puff pieces, either. Why, I’ll bet you didn’t even realize that the home of many major credit-card issuers is the birthplace of Tom Verlaine and to-the-bone bad-ass George Thorogood. On aptly named Bar/None debut Nice and Nicely Done, local sextet the Spinto Band takes advantage of its hometown’s invisible indie profile to sprawl all across the map of twitchy, 64-crayon guitar-pop.
Here’s a review: Fuck Marc Hogan. Delaware kicks ass, as envinced by the Saturday, 9:00 pm premiere of C.J. Stunkard’s “Boys of Summer: Let’s Hear It For The Boys.”
UPDATE: Some confusion has arisen about by my use of the terms “Fuck” and “Marc Hogan.” I was joking. Marc’s a good guy and his is a good review. But I cannot resist a chance to plug Delaware or the “Boys of Summer” films.
