THE HAPPY PROLE

"...work and slave and skimp and save....and you can buy yourself a bigger cage..."


This page is dedicated to one of my favorite bands...QUASI! I only have pics and sound-clips from their last 2 cd's, because I don't own their first one. Oh well, this should still give you an idea of what makes them so great. Quasi consists of SAM COOMES (keyboards, guitar, lead vocals) and JANET WEISS (drums and backing vocals). You may recognize both of these fine musicians from other bands. Sam was in Heatmiser. Janet is still a member of Sleater Kinney. Quasi recently toured with Elliott Smith and also acted as his back-up band. They also just happen to be ex-husband and wife!! You still aren't interested??? What's wrong with you? Read on to see and hear more of Quasi.

R&B TRANSMORGRIFICATION

This is a fantastic album, of course. It comes close to capturing the sound they create live.... lot's of noisy keyboard... cool back-beat drumming by Janet, and nothing but awesome, depressing pop songs throughout. Highlighted song titles are clickable song clips. They are fairly long (.WAV) format... but they should give you a good idea of the greatness that is Quasi. Enjoy.
