Come Widdit: Suicide Casanova

Suicide Casanova
Location: Bremerton, WA
Sounds Like: Everything I ever liked about '90s rock

Like most people in their mid-to-late twenties, I'm finding that all the bands that I used to love when I was in middle school and high school still resonate; in fact they probably make more sense now than back when I was 14 and didn't quite understand the sexual politics and emotional complexities of a band like Toad the Wet Sprocket or Candlebox. Suicide Casanova is Charley Potter's one man band and listening to the songs presented on his Myspace is like taking a time machine back to 1996.

Though he spends most of his time beating the skins for the pop-hardcore outfit Kane Hodder, Potter's side project is much more earnest and for that one characteristic, it's much easier to listen to.

I imagine that if (God forbid) Kane Hodder ever called it a day, Potter will have a very bright future ahead of him as a strong solo performer. He'd at least have one fan over here.
