The Rocking Horse Winner

City: Lake Worth
Years Active: 2001 - 2005 (roughly)
Type of Music: Indie Rock
Myspace or Website:

I remember seeing Rocking Horse when my friend Ryan filled in on a show which I believe was their first. I can't remember if he was actually in the band or not but I liked them from the start. Real good mellow rock with beautiful vocals. Alot of the time, when members of hardcore bands get together to play something mellow, it usually doesn't turn out so well. In this case, it really did. They released their first full length on Ohev Records and then were snatched up by Equal Vision. I like the second full length "Horizons" but their first is really amazing. To the best of my knowledge, the first full length is out of print so if anyone knows otherwise, please let me know and Ill take down the link. Members were in Poison the Well, Anchorman, and As Friends Rust.
