Eager for Beaver?

Uh oh. There's trouble in Evil Beaver land.
A Chicago band, Evil Beaver were two women who played cock rock in the first degree. Cock rock so cok rockinest, in fact, that it must be called "cock raaaawk."
But now one of them, "Evil Evie," has grabbed the band name, hired two other drummers, and disavowed all mentions of Laura Ann Beaver (Laura Ann Masulo) on her "official" Evil Beaver website.
Woo! Hilarious drama ensues!
See, having seen them twice (both with Laura Ann), the hilarious part of this is that they're really not worth this level of drama. I mean, I can see going to one of their shows. They put on a decent cockrockery, but this is like hearing that one of one of the Heart sisters is going out on her own, or maybe that Stephen Pearcy is performing as RATT with new backing folks. I can understand wanting to get your merch back, but really, is Evil Beaver worth the hassle?
I mean, Christ, at what point do two women become mature enough to not fight over a band name like Malevolent Vagina?

Oh, this other blog...

The funniest thing about the Beav is that they are Albini's favorite Chicago band.

The fact of that matter is that Malevolent Vagina IS NOT the name. That's the most predictable unoriginal trite attempt at wit you white pathetically average American males (the white, male, & American parts all being equal opportunity employers in your lack of potent debate).

THe other crucial fact of the matter is that EVIL BEAVER is an effective name becuase everyone remembers it. That's what an effective band name IS.

If it's sooooo insigificant...why are you are you writing about it then????

Ahhh the double sword you fall victim too while attempting to be so smart while treading the vat of dumb.

I'm not with the band by the way...but of course you blogger crumbs never believe that one either so run with the drama.

No. Evil Beaver is an effective name for a NOVELTY band. Like The Space Negros or The Glamazons. Memorable does not equal quality, otherwise we'd all be talking about what an awesome band Fuck is.
Of course, if you weren't a woman, you'd understand that. Maybe that's why the fairer sex can't succeed in the music business?

Evie Evil is the band anyway. Who cares who the drummer is.

YES FINALLY! Evie is the band. We all go to see her rock the fuck out. Drummers are in the back ground and as much as I hate to admit it....there are not a whole lot of people out there that would notice a new drummer anyway. LA was awesome..still is awesome, but the fact of the matter is, Evil Beaver songs will still be Evil Beaver songs as long as Evie is there. And by the way JOSH...your remarks make me think that you are a little jealous of the fact that Evie is a chick and can play an instument better than most men anywhere. Get a hobby!

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a penis enlargement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on penis enlargement reviews.
