Ka-Blam(mos)!

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 1:39 PM

This just in from prodigal laz-e-boy Arthur Adams and his poptastic San Fran rock outfit Blammos:

The band's video for "How Do You Know?" was voted the number one rock video at OurStage.com for the month of January, beating out a bunch bands you've never heard of to win a king's ransom of $1000. According to recent email from Adams, rather than blow the loot on celebrating, Blammos will use the cash to return to the studio. So in a way, we're all winners. But in another, more accurate way, Blammos is the winner. (That's right, two Simpsons references in less than a week. Do something.)

It's certaily a nice win for Adams and Co. But it's probably not entirely unexpected. If you go to Ourstage and check out the runners up, you'll notice that the "competition" is similar to, say, the New England Patriots scrimmaging Burlington High School's JV squad. Talent-wise, Blammos is in a different league from the rest of the pack. And it ain't even close.

(It should probably be noted that I've known Arthur since he was in grade school. I'm friends with bassist Tim Marcus, formerly of Concentric renown. And the band's drummer, David Stockhausen, was, once upon a time, my partner in alt-country crime in The Middle Eight. Obviously, I'm all sorts of biased on this one. Deal with it. But I'd urge you to check it out and see if you don't agree.)

Anyway, here's the Blammos vid. 'Tis a beaut. Congrats, guys!
