Vending Machetes is...
Abe Kimball: Guitar/Vocals
Mike Thomas: Bass
Jesse Weiss: Drums
The band are featured on our very own SONIC WAVES compilation, here's what we had to say about them...
"Vending Machetes are the latest addition to Boston’s exceptional local music scene, with a style that blends the musicianship of Dischord-era post-punk together with larger than life vocals more akin to Incubus’ Brandon Boyd than anything math inspired. Vending Machetes is the brainchild of lead singer/guitarist Abe Kimball who is joined by local favorites Mike Thomas (Dirty Dishes/SuperVolcano) and Jesse Weiss (Grass Is Green/SuperVolcano) to forge a sound that connects the uncommon bond of grunge, alternative rock, and post-punk into something defiantly new and ultimately excellent. Finger tapped guitars ride side by side with power chords, continuously building polyrhythmic exploration, and Kimball’s triumphant vocals. Look for their Devin Ocampo (see: Medications) assisted debut EP to be released this fall."
