WE NO WANT! Sometimes we feel old merely reading about the new bands. Blood Red Sun, who perform tonight at The Mercury Lounge, are quoted (in their very own press materials) as saying, “There is a sincerity that is embedded in the foundation of certain music that won’t allow a listener to disregard its message.” And: “You need to have an army to support a single word. If you don’t scream, people don’t hear you.” The only screaming we can hear are of the lambs, the poor poor lambs in our head.
