The Biters are a young rock and roll band from Atlanta GA. I recently found them just surfing the web. I started Jarvys Cafe' back in 2006 to pay tribute to Detroit Rock and Roll. As time went by, this blog morphed into just paying tribute to any "Great" rock and roll. Over the years, I have written about many bands that I thought fit that "great R&R description. But you the years have gone by, I have found fewer and fewer bands that even inspired me enough to write a post. This is the first time I have sat down to write a post in a very long time! And it is not because I haven't looked for new bands, it's just that there seem to be fewer and fewer. I have thought a lot about the fact that I have now listened to and loved rock and roll for over 45 years and asked the question "is it because I am just old, that I think the best rock and roll blossomed in 1965 through 1970". The answer is a resounding "NO"...those were just the best years for the "real deal". That is not to say there haven't been great bands through out the years after 1975 to today. There just plain is "the real deal" and "not the real deal". The Biters are the real deal. It reminded me of when I discovered the Sex Pistols or The Black Crows. You just hear immediately. It brings back all those feelings of my reasons for wanting to play rock and roll when I was 13 years old. CHECK THESE GUYS OUT!
