Female Demand: Fearsome Predator In Local-Music Bestiary

Each week, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to [email protected].

A dream from the other night:

This guy, this massive monster of a human, was running up the side of a mountain. As he crushed his way to the top, he came across a cobragator (king cobra + alligator). The cobragator demanded the massive monster of a human pay a penance to pass. The human, let's call him Warrior Dave, said, "Oh, I'll pay alright... WITH YOUR LIFE!"

And then he leapt at the cobragator, grabbed him by the throat, then ripped his abdomen in two. As the cobragator laid there bleeding to death, Warrior Dave looked up to the sky. He shouted, "IS THAT ALL YOU HAVE FOR ME, FATHER?!", then fell to his knees.
