The Skinny: Founded on raw energy, sweat, and a bit of blood, the sound of The Baketones project has been lingering in receptive ears since the post-medieval industrial caveman era. Playing their little Baketone hearts out, seeking their own spot in this crazy world, the band continues on with more garage-banging tunes that can spark up many a fire.

Add a scoop of The Stones, a cup of The Kinks, a bowl of Buddy Holly, 12 ounces of fuzzed-out surf, and 1 stick of The Yardbirds, shake it up like a Bo Diddley rhythm, cook on high volume, clap your hands, say “Alakazam”, and you’ve got a fresh loaf of The Baketones, the sweetest treat in town.
