SWERVEDRIVER: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Nati dalle ceneri degli Shake Appeal, diventano in poco tempo una ottima band molto apprezzata, la musica tendenzialmente psichedelica con primi accenni di quel post rock degli anni a seguire. Infatti dopo un paio d’anni si evolvono in atmosfere pop, sempre con influenze del passato.
