Knife in the Water, Big Drag featured in Spin Magazine "100 Greatest Bands" List

Spin Magazine - August 2009 issueThe August 2009 issue of Spin Magazine features a nine-page spread called "Unsung: The 100 Greatest Bands You've (Probably) Never Heard," dedicated to all of the obscure bands the publication has failed to give proper credit over the years.

"In Spin's nearly 25-year history, some truly crap bands have achieved glory while more deserving — or just less lucky — artists languished on the fringes," states the introduction to the list, which includes such word-of-mouth favorites as Opal, Unrest, Huggy Bear, The Gories and Gaunt. Also included on that list are former Peek-A-Boo Records artists Knife in the Water (Austin, TX) and personal favorites Big Drag (San Antonio, TX).
