The resulting music is aggressive, inventive and clunky, yet surprisingly tuneful and catchy.

Their three guitar onslaught has astounded and confused perhaps dozens of America's youth. The old timers sit back and smile while the kids try to comprehend the blistering Hardcore and blazing Pop that descends upon them like some Biblical plague of locusts on a pierced and tattooed wheat field. Never before has a band of such awesome talent and good looks been unleashed upon the unsuspecting masses. Already, bands are refusing to play with SUX for fear of being embarrassed and humiliated. A full length CD is now in preproduction. Soon the whole world will be able to understand why SUX is truly the greatest band to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Join Brian as he welcomes via telephone Marika Lamberg, organizer of what is now the 6th Annual International Air Guitar Competition, taking place on August 24th in Oulu, Finland. Marika will preview the festivities, and prove why wailing on one's invisible axe is no laughing matter: contestants are seriously judged on originality, throwing oneself to the mercy of the music, and charisma of performance. Marika also says: "We must not forget the main point of playing an air guitar -the aim is not to win, but to save the world! You can't fight, you can't hold a gun if you play an air guitar -so the playing of air guitar cease the wars and diseases! And that will culminate in a worldwide air guitar playing. All the people around the world are invited to stop whatever they're doing (exact time to be announced) and to play the air guitar for at least five minutes."
