Favorite Atlanta-based music act
Anytime the Lazy Indians played at Lenny's Bar they were the worst band in the history of the city. They were politically incorrect, horribly distasteful, rude, hard to deal with, drunk, and Carter (the lead singer) tried to fight the entire crowd at Lenny's each time they played. I hated their name, everything was wrong about this band. They sounded like the worst flipper cover band in history and they possibly broke everything they owned on stage. They could hardly finish a song. They made the Black Lips looks like a boys choir. They were possibly the worst stage band in history besides the G.G. Allin. I have to say they were hands down the my favorite Atlanta-based band because they honestly did not care about anything at all except music as pure experience.
