will be interesting to see how it turns out...
Plus...if ever they toured we could shout SPEEDO SPEEDO and not feel guilty about the rest of the band!! LOVE Speedo (the person, as well as, i'm sure, the band).
More good news: Former Rocket from the Crypt leader and Swami Records head John Reis is putting together a new band, according to Punknews.org.
Called Speedo, the group will feature Reis, Hot Snakes (another of Reis’ projects) drummer Jason Kourkounis and guitarist Gar Wood.
Posting on the Swami message board, Reis said the band will be “similar to Hot Snakes but not as sinister yet still maintaining some of the drama and subsonic boom.” He also said Speedo would sound like RFTC, only with less “riffery.”
Explaining further, Reis cited the Flaming Groovies, Real Kids, Byrds and Bo Diddley as major influences.

This is actually the best news ever x100000000. At first I nearly did a little cry thinking RFTC were reforming, but a new band.....sweet!
