Band With The Long Name Goes After Right Wingers

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – I Can Lick Any Son of a Bitch In The House is a mouthful of a band name but wait until you get an earful of the group’s hard-rocking politics.

That’s the actual moniker of a Portland-based hard rock band and when the name isn’t crowding others off the concert flyers, the members are pummeling fundamentalists, gun nuts and homophobes with their music.

For instance, one tune, “Dear Mr. Heston” refers to the NRA spokesman as a “cold-blooded, old-blooded, sick- ass man,” while “Westboro Baptist Church” sucker-punches notorious homophobe Rev. Fred Phelps with the line, “Well if God hates fags, you a, I’m sure He hates you more.”

SoB frontman Michael Damron says the reason the band pulls no punches is because, as he puts it, “Today, politics are just so disappointing, I don’t see much hope on either side of the fence, and other artists who are finally speaking up? Too little, too late.”

I Can Lick Any SoB in the House will go on tour behind their new CD, Live At Dantes, starting in June.
