Critical Jargon: Dark and swaggering with a raucous punk immediacy, simple genre classification is rendered as foggy as this Bay Area quintet's hometown. Traces of the blues, psychedelia, mod rock, Nick Cave and a bad whiskey hangover leave a hypnotic/histrionic trail in the wake of Vue's live set.
Quoth the Band Member: "We want the guy in the pickup truck to turn up his stereo and go, 'yeah, man.' Or for some girl to put us on a mix tape for some guy she has a crush on." - Rex Shelverton, vocals, guitar
