Of course, some of you nasties out there may think that pica reminds me of the eating disorder by the same name, where people dig eating things like shit and chalk, but you're oh so wrong. No, ‘Pica’ totally reminds me of the following piece of art that I just created:
Yep! I know for a fact that The Pica Beats would've been much better off naming their group The Pichu Beats, but hey, whatever -- the music matters more than the band name right? Wrong! The name is everything. Seriously, the Pica Beats is nothing compared to The Pichu Beats -- what were they thinking? I bet they'll toss and turn in their beds at night, wishing they had replaced that vowel with a dope-ass consonant and an even BETTER vowel (work with me here).
So, yeah, I'm still pissed off, but if you haven't heard any of the awesome pop music these folks are churning out, then you should visit their MySpace. Don't own a computer? Can't read this current news story? Don't fret: the five-piece group will release Beating Back the Claws of the Cold on Hardly Art later this year.
I recommend protesting their name at these lonely Seattle shows:
