Eyeball Skeleton!

Folks, nothing rules more than bands that name their first single the same name as the band. One possible exception would be bands where most of the members are still in elementary school and they are named Eyeball Skeleton.

Maryland's Eyeball Skeleton are eight-year old JJ Brown, ten-year old Charlie Brown and their Dad. The band met at a hospital in the mid-1990s. Each song begins with an image and title drawn by JJ or Charlie (could be a hamburger, could be an Eyeball Skeleton), then they write down ideas and lines for the lyrics, then work with Dad over waffles and coffee to organize the lyrics to fit their music. Catch them at the Talking Head this Friday, guessing this one is all ages.

Hope these kids are the openers. Damn sons!
