Cortez! Cortez!

Cortez! Cortez! are some pretty cool new local indie rocksters who list David Bowie, T. Rex, Black Flag, My Bloody Valentine, The Pretenders, The Beatles, Stones, Radiohead, Minor Threat & Miles Davis as some of their influences on their myspace. The band are a three piece and include songwriter and singer and man of many instruments Barney McKenna, Nick Bockrath and James Sauppe. So far, they've released a limited edition EP called 8 For Infinity and are currently working on some new material. They played their first show in July (yeah, this year) and they sound refreshingly and optimistically raw, poppy and manic. And that's the way I like it. Think early Undertones lost somewhere in the haze of a cool collection of Creation Records 45's.
