BEST NEW BAND, FORMED IN LAST 12 MONTHS

The Sammies

comment
They played their first gig in January; by July they were recording their debut in New York City with the Walkmen. These four young men out of Wadesboro play fast, snotty rock ala the MC5 and Mooney Suzuki and do so with a refreshing gusto. It's testament to their chops and enthusiasm that in a ridiculously rich season for new bands -- the Gold Coast and Tyre Fyre merit strong consideration, too -- their impact was the most memorable.
