Four on the Floor

Crushed signs seven-album pact, gets abducted by aliens

"It will also help people understand we're not just some heavy-metal band," explains Garten. Because of the band's almost uniform hair style (straight and long) and name--which deejays love to pronounce "Cruuuuusssshhhhhheed" in a monster-truck-rally tone--new listeners often get the wrong impression that Crushed is butt-rock to the core. "I get as excited about a Pantera song as I do a Tears for Fears song," continues Garten. "We all have a really wide range of influences."

Asked if they're bonded by a common ideology, the room falls silent. Then Brown pipes up.

"Uh, Coors Light?"
"Yeah," says Garten, "it's the one thing we all agree on."
"If there's a common ideology in this band," says Lauer, "it's to just have a good time together and to make music. When I stop having that feeling every day when I wake up that I love music, that's when it'll be over. And I don't think that'll ever happen."

Brown and Halland exchange glances, then look at Lauer like he's that three-breasted alien woman the director told them about.

Crushed is scheduled to perform on Tuesday, December 31, at Hollywood Alley in Mesa, with Still, and Fluidrive. Call for showtime.
