If you ask the Epoxies, the rough stuff could have been left in the equation. Since 2000, the Portland quintet has embraced the defining elements of new wave while folding in the raw energy and chaos of punk. Maybe if the Sex Pistols, Devo and Toni Basil were thrown into a blender and whipped into a smoothie, it would taste like the Epoxies sound--zippy and refreshing. As if that's not enough, the super-cool punk wavers put on a live show that rocks the eyeballs as hard as it'll make you pogo, complete with yards of multicolored duct tape, wraparound x-ray specs, vinyl miniskirts and strap-on synthesizers. Dust off those parachute pants and get ready to bop; the Epoxies pack all the irony and twice the fun.
