a correction

June 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment · By

I must atone for my transgressions:  the name of the band is actually CORSAIR (singular) rather than THE CORSAIRS.  Apparently everyone has been getting it wrong and I can’t help but feel that Nailgun is partially responsible.  I thought that it was like they were all in a band and each one of them was a corsair; but no, apparently they all get together to form ONE Corsair, which means that referring to the band in the plural is a misnomer on the level of saying “the Voltrons*.”  So, I felt the need to issue a correction.

Anyhow, Corsair played a really solid set last night.  Buck Gooter were surprisingly heavy and noisy — I like how those guys always manage to keep you on your toes.  And Articulate Chewbacca?  Oh my god, they were ridiculous. It might honestly be my favorite thing that I’ve seen those guys play, and they’ve each been in a bunch of bands. It was only their second show, too.  Check ’em out next time, for real.

* PS, Please do not now go out and name your dance-rock band “The Voltrons,” it’s a fucking terrible name.

    Bonus Fact: apparently, The Corsairs were a doo-wop group best known for their 1962 hit “Smoky Places,” a song of which I was previously unaware:

    It’s actually kind of great, although it requires not watching the utterly ridiculous scrolling-text lyrics-transciption in order to get the full effect.
