If you are going to Reykjavik Calling this Friday night at the Crocodile, you are going to see a softer side of Rachel Flotard as she partners up with Rusty Willoughby in their Cobirds Unite collective. But those who know Flotard from her main band, Visqueen, knows that she has also has a pure pop side that rocks… and it rocks hard.
But who does Rachel look to for inspiration? Here’s what she had to say about Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters first album: “There’s nothing like the urgency of the first Foo’s record. The ray gun basically shot me in the face, and I’ve always had a spot in my heart for it… plus, any jovial brother that wallops the skins and cranks is good by me.”
You can check out Rachel and Rusty this Friday, and between now and then be sure to check out the rest of Rachel’s post on Dave Grohl at Rocktorch.com!
