HockeyNo, I’m not talking about the sport, but a very fun band from Portland whose debut, Mind Chaos, is the most cheese-tastic ’80s throwback record to come out in ’09 — with a country song thrown in there for good measure. I agree with contributor E. Thompson that it’s pretty meta — the thing is rife with both sonic and lyrical retro pop culture references — but that they can poke fun at their unquestionably derivative music is exactly what makes their shows so fun and unpretentious. If you saw the band at Sasquatch! last year, you already know about the glorious spectacle that is four dudes prancing around in neon green short-shorts and sweatbands. Therefore, I heartily encourage you to e-mail us with “Hockey” in the subject heading and your full name and phone number in the body of the e-mail by noon on Monday, January 11. One randomly-selected winner will be notified shortly thereafter. Good luck!
