What the heck is a "juggalo?"

You may or may not know if you're a juggalo. But, The Pranks know if you are, and if so, then you need not apply for their currently open drummer seat. I just stumbled across this listing on the Stranger's classified ads:

Seattle-area Garage/Power-Pop/Rock band w/ label support (indie USA & Europe) needs pro-level drummer for upcoming tours (U.S./Europe), recording. etc -- we're looking for a full-time member. Do you dig Kenny Jones, Moon, Chris Dangerous? We like Buzzcocks, The Jam, Hives, The Who, Mudhoney, Thin Lizzy, etc... Ages: 19-25. Must have gear, transport, hard-working attitude. Also, NEED TO LOOK like you belong in a ROCK band. NO JUGGALOS. Male/Female/Both we don't care -- must be able to tour and not cry about it. If you're interested contact THE PRANKS at :, (425) 941-6476 or WWW.MYSPACE.COM/THEPRANKS

If you haven't heard The Pranks, then you're missing the boat. I am veeeeeeeeerrrrrrryyyyy much in anticipation of their upcoming release. Unfortunately, their myspace page is completely flaked out. They uploaded two rough mixes from the record, but darned if I can get them to play. Obviously someone can get them to play, because the "Modern Communication" track is up to 125 plays. I adored the demo version of this song (in fact, it was the first "song of the weekend" ever named on this blog!)

So, anyway, if your a drummer and your name isn't Chris Campbell (who drums in 2 bands with me and I don't want to lose him!), you should answer this ad. These guys rule.

--- added note --- I finally got the new rough mixes to play, and they sounds GREAT! Nicely done, fellas.
