Looking at the pro-shot video for “Riot in Cairo,” an Arab-Spring-themed cut from youngin’ Indianapolis heavy rockers Goliathon, it’s pretty clear the five dudes in the band can throw down. Sure, there are some white pants — and anyone who knows me knows I have a rule about that kind of thing — but the song rocks and I’m not about to take that away from the band on account of wardrobe.
They class it up with some saxophone, but those guitars are all classic rock dirt, and the show looks like a party I’d want to be at, so I figured sharing the clip was the way to go. As of now, Goliathon is in the “warrants further investigation” pile, since this has pretty much been my only exposure to them, but guitarist Derek Kendall, who sent me the link to check out the clip, has threatened that a new EP is on the horizon. I’d expect their name will show up in bold in all the usual haunts once that hits, surrounded by much hyperbole.
