Thats the retro-reality of the 1990s-worshipping band named Seether, who take their name from a song by alt-rockers Veruca Salt, who in turn took their name from the iconic childrens book, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.
Principal Seether singer-songwriter Shaun Morgan is unapologetic about the Gen X influences and inspirations driving his bands sound, which is captured in its acoustic form on their new live disc, One Cold Night.
Says Morgan, Were most influenced by Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine, and were not afraid to admit that, however uncool or unhip it is at the moment.
Morgan thinks that Seethers cover of Pearl Jams ballad Immortality probably doesnt come as a surprise to our fans.
He adds, jokingly: Theyre pretty nosy and seem to know a lot about us.
