Simikich bristles when recalling one art critic who drew parallels between Eyes and Vice. “Maybe you can compare them because they appeal to the same age group, but that’s basically like saying Def Leppard and black metal are the same,” he says. “They’re not. Other than that they both have guitars.”

here and then check out some back issue highlights. They just put a book out on powerHouse, which I highly recommend. And I hear they're coming to Philly in the fall to do a show at Space 1026.
