    What, no Final Mix?!?! Just kidding.

    I've only really experienced Frankenixon late last year, so I can't honestly say. But they did seem pretty good.

  • What's Final Mix?

  • I have to admit I don't listen to much local music, but I'd say my favorites are:
    Index Case
    Albino Spiders

    And I've never actually heard Slaughterhouse 6, but since I go to school with some of the members I suppose I should say they're cool too.

  • from across iowa..

    The Twelve Canons
    Frankenixon (now the Sword of Exactly)
    The Old Scratch Revival Singers
    The Tanks

  • and he's no band, but William Elliott Whitmore definitely tops my list.

    Black Iowa Dirt still goes on every mix I make that heads out of the state.

  • Enkido

    Well I love For Today. A band out of sioux city. Check the PV yeah

  • Yep, For Today's pretty good. I've seen them a couple times.
    Saw Mondo Cane at Christmas Extravaganza.

    My band's playing with Poison Control Center late this month, so I'm pretty excited.

    Not really into the local scene at the moment but I can recommend Penis Mob, band started by a high school acquaintance. I listened to their first album a long time ago and just heard through the grape vine that they're doing good. Hard to describe but it was good for a first album.

  • DJ Dad/MC Mom is a pretty well kept secret

  • I'm really digging a band by the name of We're All Tarantulas

    I don't really like Sioux City's "scene" at all. It's all a bunch of hardcore stuff that sounds exactly the same (I think the bands get together and right the same music over and over again), but I really like An Airbag Saved My Life from the Des Moines/Pella area.

    Newickedream (

    Those are really the only two I've gotten seriously into. Suicide High is a given, considering that I worked for them for a time, but they're broken up again so I won't count them.
