The Exploding Hearts - Garage Rock/Punk

Postby (raygunpyle) » Fri Apr 12, 2013 10:28 am

Is anyone a fan of this band? Three of the four members in the band tragically died when their van flipped in 2003. They were returning to Portland, OR from San Francisco and got in an accident. They we're so wonderful and talented. They only have one album called "Guitar Romantic" and a posthumous release tittled "Shattered"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LMNTNaTlZ0 - My favorite Exploding Hearts songs. I love the jangle at the beginning of this track :D Such a great riff.

HUGE FAN!!! I grew up in the Portland area and got really into them in high school (still am!). Check out the Nice Boys and the Cry too (also from portland). Terry's (only surviving member) 330 licks are what first attracted me to Rickenbackers as a lead Rock n Roll instrument.

Looks like a documentary is in the works regarding the Exploding Hearts, really excited for this. i still listen to Guitar Romantic and Shattered on a weekly basis.

Big fan, and I remember so clearly when their accident happened, I was just starting college.

Wear your seatbelts people!! Supposedly, the only people who survived the accident were the two wearing seatbelts. Incredibly tragic story... :cry:
