THE THROB!!!!!!!!!


I WAS LISTENING TO MY IPOD TODAY AND THIS GREAT SONG CAME ON AND SAID WHO IS THAT? WELL THAT BAND IS A BAND NAMED THE THROB FROM AUSTRALIA A GREAT NAME!!!!!!!! The Throb are mostly famous for their better-than-the-Stones cover version of Fortune Teller, but to my ears the band’s finest recorded moment came six months later, when they transformed the bittersweet traditional folk song Black into a violent feedback-laden Gothic masterpiece.  UnfortunatelyBlack was not a substantial hit and the band soon disintegrated.  Nonetheless, the Throb still had one of the best band names ever, and even better... they looked exactly liked they sounded!
DIG THEM HEAR!!!!!
