Meet The Band: Geyser

"A real good time," is how Geyser's Neil Bednis describes his band's music. "Think of all your favorite punk bands of the '70s and '80s (the Stooges, the Replacements, the Birthday Party) slammed together with your favorite bands of the '90s (Sonic Youth, Pavement)." And all of those influences are most certainly on display in the four tracks that make up the Sudbury's trio's self-titled EP. Recorded "one Saturday night in August in an old diner," the record is full of distortion and fuzz. It drops on April 1 — and you can already stream it below. They're playing in Toronto just a couple days after that: Thursday, April 3 at the Izakaya Sushi House (near College & Spadina) with Soft Hell and  Coast Redwood.
