A meld of reggae-rock, west coast style , with fast paced blues rifts and jazzy percussion. Not Quite Kings are bringing a whole new style to the life and legend of what you want from a reggae groove. Slope Style Reggae from Denver Colorado.
And then it began. The terrible chain of events that created The Garden Weasels as we know them today.
First, a freak explosion at the Trusty Condom Company, claiming the life of The Aerator. Then, the awe eliciting death of Country Mike The Lawn Jockey while test driving a new mini-van. A tragic crop dusting accident, incarceration due to excess parking tickets, religous sabatical, grounhogs, alien abduction and a never ending case of lost car keys. It was Spinal Tap-esk. But, the band played on. The saga of sorrow finally came to an end with the untimely name change of poor, poor, El Toro to Rusty Shears. It should have been over then, but something kept the Weasels going. Success was but a tinkle away.
After a short stint with fill-in drummer Snapper Moehr, the tragically over funded and under sexed Weasel, the boys moved on for short stint with a disco/ska band, Briggs Stratton (Pronounced Strap-on).. Promising to cover the Weasels with his fertile rhythms and positive potential for FILLER material hoeing a new album with ith Pete Moss on guitar, Rusty Shears on vocals, and the mild mannered Mr. Green Jeanson bass guitar, (Cap'n Kangaroo's ex-lover). And so you have it, the names that will go down in history as, The Garden Weasels.
