Port Fish Day 2002
Myopic Son entered the music scene in February of 2000 when bassist Jeff Ritter,
guitarist Kevin Kosterman, and drummer Spencer Smith were introduced to Nik
Alexander. After enlisting Nik as vocalist, the band recorded their debut EP,
Prodigal, in June of 2000. Michael Hopkins, of The Scene magazine described
Prodigal as, �One of the best albums that I�ve heard in a long time� and, �With
insightful lyrics that grapple with the basic struggles of human nature, the
songs reach into your chest and grab your heart, not to tear it out for death,
but to wake it up for life.� Myopic Son have created a musical style full of
forceful rhythm patterns and intensity-fueled melodies. With the combination of
Kosterman�s powerful guitar riffs and Alexander�s deep range of vocal tones,
Myopic Son�s melodic active rock style is hard-driving, while being easy on the
ear. The core of the rhythm section is balanced between the blend Smith and
Ritter. The band prides themselves on their intense stage show and their genuine
love for the music they create and perform.
Myopic Son have played shows throughout the Midwest and shared the stage with such National Acts as Jackyl, Full Devil Jacket, Kittie, Quiet Riot, Hair of the Dog, American Head Charge, Megadeth, Caroline�s Spine, Ill Nino, No One, and Chimaira. In addition, on December 23, 2001, Myopic Son was named #1 on a top ten listing of Wisconsin bands by WAPL (Rolling Stone�s Radio Station of the Year). They have also received weekly airplay on Wisconsin rock stations WZOR (Green Bay), WJJO (Madison), WLUM (Milwaukee), WWWX (Appleton), and WAPL (Appleton).
