The Nixons


I opened the cover to the Nixon's MCA debut album, "Foma," and looked at the photo I thought, "Oh, a band that wants to be like Stone Temple Pilots!" After I listened to it, I then knew that it was a band that wanted to be a cross between Megadeth and Stone Temple Pilots.

Well, The Nixons do unleash pretty heavy moments on "Foma", as in the title track. Then they wax country at points (possibly in honor of lead singer Zac Maloy's grandfather) as in "Sister". One thing is certain--the Oklahoma-based Nixons have a lot of energy in this record and would probably put on a good concert.
