The Ironclads

Being part of a musical collective, much like having a gold American

Express card, has its privileges. Just ask Seattle's own Ironclads.

Part of the Wizard Rock collective, which boasts the Whore Moans and

their mellower brethren the Dirty Sleeves, the Ironclads have one

Whore Moan producing their record and another as a temporary bass

player. I'd love to give you a more accurate description of their

musical stylings than "they rock," but it's nearly impossible as their

sound (and lineup) are in a constant state of evolution. Primarily

consisting of Thom Strub and Jamie Cotton, songwriters who switch off

vocal and lead-guitar duties, the IC can always be counted on to bring

it big-time live. The recent addition of their latest drummer, who

plays with big, gonzo, balls-out abandon, only promises to sweeten an

already stellar show. With Lake of Falcons and Future of the Ghost.

Funhouse, 206 Fifth Ave. N., 374-8400. 9:30 p.m. $6.

Listen to a sample of The Ironclads' "Bullet Train."
