I also caught Stimulator opening for Duran Duran in Memphis,TN. My friend and I had a typical first reaction when being faced with an unknown band as an opener: polite applause, followed by the "will they PLEASE hurry up and finish" bit. It took all of two songs to get past THAT. This band kicks A** (not sure how Amazon feels about mild profanity, but you get my point). I personally enjoyed seeing a truly talented woman OUT FRONT, not writhing around a pole in a miniskirt for the titillation of the male part of the audience while the "real" (i.e. MALE) musicians did their thing. At intermission, we both ran for the vendors so we could get a CD and have it autographed (yep, they were out there mixing with their new fans). They are as good live as as on CD (unlike some bands). I know sometimes it's tough to branch out and buy music from an unfamiliar band, but this one is WORTH IT!
