"The Heavy Pets know what you’re thinking when you hear the word jam-band. Chances are, your notion of what this type of band can do is about to be shattered. You know the negative stereotypes – soullessly meandering guitar solos, cringe-worthy vocals, and lyrics that sound like something your artsy nephew wrote for his seventh-grade poetry class. All that stuff truly does permeate the jam scene, but as guitarist and vocalist Jeff Lloyd put in the interview that follows, there are only two types of music – good and bad. This is a very good jam-band, one that recognizes the transcendent power of a band willing to take risks on stage while making every note and lyric count."
