Back In The Day – Flotsam and Jetsam

Back in the late 80's early 90's Arizona based Flotsam and Jetsam were losing bassists like it was the cool thing to do. Chances are you have heard of this band at least once in your life, more than likely surrounding a news clipping featuring the names Jason Newsted (who left to join Metallica) or Troy Gregory ( who left to join Prong), but how many of us really got into this band? This video for "Swatting at Flies" features the band in the only after-Newsted CD I'll admit to owning. The band's 1992 LP "Cuatro" was released during an era where Grunge-Alternative was getting hipper by the minute, and America saw several metal bands attempting their shot at reclaiming themselves. An interesting, but surprisingly well written effort in my opinion.
