Mr. History

The old adage “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” applies to rock and roll, too, you know. A band like Kansas City’s Mr. History gets its shits and giggles out tweaking the lessons laid down by its predecessors: Broken Social Scene, Death Cab for Cutie, the Pixies, Coldplay and Minus the Bear, to name just a few. It’s the sound of a band taking its A.P. Rock History exam and throwing ideas against the wall to find out what sticks. If you’ve read the same book, you’ll probably give them high marks.
