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."
