Seattle’s SUGARCANE MUTINY takes two shots of single-malt rock and adds a dash of twang. The band’s lyric-driven songwriting and power-pop beats recall the pub rock of Elvis Costello and Graham Parker, blending the dark humor and storytelling of a Cracker or Wilco with the loud jangly pop of the Smithereens and Fastball. Reviewers at have compared the band’s sound to such diverse acts as Billy Idol, X, the Misfits, Depeche Mode, REM, Robbie Robertson, Talking Heads, early U-2 and the Cult.

Summer venues included the Skylark Club, Comet Tavern, Blue Moon and Hempfest. Most recently the band took 2nd place in Roy’s Battle of the Bands (out of 39 applicants and 15 competitors), winning a bunch of cool gear and free rehearsal time. A 4-song EP is now available, with a full-length CD due this winter. The band seeks more club and festival work this winter and spring, with an emphasis on regional touring.

Singer-songwriter Jess Grant has migrated northward ever since fleeing his hometown of Los Angeles, where his early inspirations included LA acts like X, The Doors and The Runaways. While a rocker at heart, his acoustic music has been heard on NPR and at the NW Folklife Festival. Jess also fronts the world’s only tribute to Joan Jett, Seattle’s Jett City.

Bassist Casey Allen started out with a punky frat-party band from Pullman (Wild Debbies), then played with The Life, a Seattle pop-rock band that released two records on Green Monkey Records and made three Bumbershoot appearances. Next up was Jimm and The Boxes, a local band signed to Blue Rose, where they released a CD on Ptarmigan Records.
