They aren't really what you would call a traditional grunge band and yet they have something about them that would make the rise of grunge be incomplete without. Maybe its Mark Arm and Steve Turner..

The Thrown Ups were basically about making a hell of a noise without given structure. That's why Beezer didn't want to have Mark and Steve in the band anymore because he thought they were too conventional :o He plays in a number of experimental improvisational bands now, with Snoose Junction and Cantenna being two of them. Both are really good, but more in the psychedelic direction, playing for hours and with musicians coming and going through the show.


I think Beezer's about as underground as you can get, really.

Popping in to plug Snoose and Cantenna (more or less the same band, btw -- Cantenna is a subset of Snoose). There's a blog that documents most of what went on in that scene -- circa 2006-2008.

It's definitely much less punk than the Thrown Ups ... lots of extended jams. Sometimes they go on for hours.

I recently relocated to NYC and I'm always looking for people to jam with and/or places to play. Friend me on Facebook if you're interested.

Wooo! The Thrown Ups. I love this band. It's like crazy random noise punk grunge.
