Six St. Louis Acts Named After Body Parts

You guys, our bootys are in so. much. trouble. Ever since Hazard to Ya Booty dropped its new album in December, our asses have been getting a nonstop workout. Can dancing make you pull muscles? Ass muscles? We swear that it's happened, but Hazard's self-proclaimed "crunchy funk" is totally worth the burn. Channelling James Brown's soul, Flea's groovy bass and plenty of smooth, sexy horns, Hazard to Ya Booty ensures that we don't ever want to sit down.


Want to be slapped with some throwback alternative? Various Hands will be the first to volunteer. Jeff Nations' pop-alt outfit waves at sunny '90s bands such as the Gin Blossoms and Counting Crows while adding tones from the current decade's indie-rock darlings like Band of Horses and encasing it all in a sheath of Incubus-style grime. It's a complicated combination that shouldn't work, but Various Hands pulls it off. What else might we convince these capable, multi-talented Hands to try? We're compiling a list.


Ok, so Thee Fine Lines technically is from Springfield, but they're still, like, ours, right? Springfield practically is in St. Louis' backyard, plus bassist Kevin Schneider pulls duty in several (314) bands, including fellow body-part group the Blind Eyes. Thus, we're planting our fleur-de-lis flag on Thee Fine Lines, whose members don't seem to age despite the band's name. The group played its first show way back in 2001, but its garage rock is as youthful as ever -- no crows' feet serum necessary.
