Best Punk Band

The Dead Kenny Gs

Primus' Les Claypool, a frequent collaborator with The Dead Kenny Gs' bandleader, Skerik, came to the sax player recently and told him he had a great idea for a song title: "Gorelick"—which happens to be the real last name of the band's poodle-haired inspiration, and the name of its new EP. Skerik and Kenny G took lessons from the same man, and are both masters of their craft. One of them plays smooth jazz, the other plays every genre under the musical rainbow, and blows the fiercest punk in town with this ensemble. CHRIS KORNELIS
