Quix*o*tic was one of the best and most unique bands to come out of DC at the end of the last century. They brought together spooky heavily reverbed guitar sounds, dark lyrics, and very original songwriting. Added to the mix were an inspired selection of covers, including this song by DC native Billy Stewart (check out the original). Unlike some local bands of the era, their performances were not over-rehearsed. There were mistakes and the occasional onstage breakdown, which lent the proceedings a lot more soul, in my opinion.
