((Washer)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Washer are two dudes (that guy is Mike Quigley and that other guy is Keiran McShane) who play bendy slacker punk sprinkled in sludge sauce. But perhaps that concise description alone isn’t going to get you where you need to be. You need other bands as reference points and you needed them 5 minutes ago yesterday. Sure thing. I can do that. Take one part of _______’s guitars, mix in a bit of ________’s drums, and add a splash of ____________’s kewl rock'n roll ‘tude and you’re left with Washer and one helluva band description.

It’s funny I’m writing this band profile today of all days. It's really hilarious. It's truly laughable. Ah ha-ha-ha-ha. Ah ha-ha-ha-ha. Because today (this very day, man) Washer released an EP with their brothers from a different mother but of the same planet, Big Ups. HYSTERICAL. Maybe I’ll post the whole EP after I finish writing this. I haven’t decided yet. I only blob in the moment always.

Another important thing to remember is that Washer are also related to Flagland - another good sludge post-something band I totally also wrote about. But I don’t really want to get into the specifics of the nature of their relationship because Wikipedia doesn’t know anything about it..... yet. Don’t worry, though. I’ll get the answers you needed 5 minutes ago yesterday concerning this important issue very, very soon. I won't let you down. You can count on me.

Because Washer are a good band and I’m feeling like mixing it up a bit (slacker bendy punk sprinkled in sludge sauce has that effect on me), I have decided to not only post that split EP with Big Ups I already mentioned two dynamic paragraphs previously, but I will also post the band’s “Bighead” EP that they released a lonnnnnnnng time ago (what was March of 2014 even LIKE, man?).

Please enjoy both. But don't bother playing either unless you are committed to blasting them. There are no half measures.
