THE TRUCKS :: Tragically Unheard Of

Piggy backing on Jon’s latest concept of “Tragic Zombies” (bands who break up before their time), I wanted to share my video montage of The Trucks from Siren Nation….Turns out their performance at Siren Nation was their last Portland show before they broke up last week!

So sad! I’m not really sure what caused the breakup but they were on their waaaay, man! The Trucks are sweethearts from Bellingham, WA. They blend cheeseball Casio beats with acoustic drums, dance worthy synths with plenty of tounge n cheek attitude combed over with a post riot grrrl vibe. It is such a shame they broke up before more little girls could look up to them and be inspired to rock out.

Anyways, here is the footage! If you look close you can see Kristin’s awesome feminist outfit tied together with tampons!!!

    I totally dig the trucks, but I don’t know if you can call them “tragically unheard of,” they were reviewed on NPR and had a song on the L Word…

    My criteria for Tragically UnHeard of is being less well known than the Kills…. definitely not too harsh :p.

    So sad, I love The Trucks. I would also like to propose another interpretation to the “tragically unheard of” line – trangically unheard of from now on such as The Trucks are breaking up and will no longer be heard as an active band.
