Axemunkee – “BlasFamous”
Axemunkee is an instrumental psychedelic rock band hailing from Boston, MA, led by guitarist Catherine Capozzi. BlasFamous is one of my favorite songs off of their debut album, Sidewalk Mary. Capozzi is known for her composition and unique guitar style, it tells a story and she does not write songs based on boring guitar solos. She has been a part of The Boston rock opera, as well as being awarded Brian May’s (Queen) guitar after playing a 2-minute guitar solo for a contest. Completing the Axemunkee crew is Geoff Chase on drums, Tamora Gooding on electronic drums, and Chris Farrel on bass. Another integral member in the recording of Sidewalk Mary was Joel Simches on the keys. You can buy, and/or hear all of Sidewalk Mary on their Bandcamp page. They are also in a contest for Converse Get out of the Garage, if you like what you hear, vote once a day every day through December 15th 2010, here. Also, be on the look out for their next release titled Vortex, which is slated for an early 2011 release.
