Ten Lb Test is one badass band!
We met in Oxford back in 2000. It actually took us a couple of years to realize we were destined to be a 3 peice.'04 was a good year for us. We played the Sardis Lake Music Festival alongside several famous Blues, Country, and even Gospil artists. Lots of fun. We recorded a song at Sonic Temple Studios with Dawn Palidino, who also did Modest Mouse, Buddy Guy, and Elvis Costello last year. It was mixed by Shawn Mackie, who has worked with folks like Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. Really freakin' awesome.
We're all from Oxford MS. Home of the Ole Miss Rebels. We do mostly partys and festivals. It's still hard to get into bars around here if you dont play country or 70's rock.
We're kind of like Alice n Chains meets Lynard Skynard, but we lean more tward the Chains speed.
Mackie Powered speakers, Marshall and Peavy Amps, PRS and Ibanez guitars. We use very little effects.
