This Louisiana band describe themselves as "metal n roll" according to their myspace web page and "imagine the. . .metallic hard core of Norma Jean and. . .the butt kicking rock of AC/DC" you have an idea of where they are coming from. The guys apparently come from a sleepy town where nothing much happens and this gave birth to the "creative havoc" that is 12 Gauge. However, I will be honest - I don't get it! Apparently they have fans who love their music and are a hard gigging crew. I found the lyrics hard to follow (perhaps I'm missing something) and that was reading the lyric sheet (some words are hard to see!), the music blended into each other and I could not distinguish one song from another. I played it to two 16 year olds and they were even less complimentary!
