Left Field: Jilly’s on Smack

01.06.2013 //

In a music industry that supposedly promotes creativity, but mainly promotes straight-ahead outfits, both Rush and Primus stood out as unapologetically unique. Which also explains why so many people either love or hate those bands. Not a lot of middle ground here.
