By Adinv Roshi
Static X is only one
of many bands set to
play the ultra-loud and
macho Ozzfest this sear
1h Ithand's front-
ian, Waynse Static,
sfut-itbly ad mits that,
"to me, the Ozzfest is
an amazinig opportuni-
tv for us to get expo-
sore to the brasvy
music lissteniung
crossd."
And sshat the brasvy
music ciossd ssill be
exposed to is a deft
Mix sof chuggitig star-
~ato guitar riffs, tech-

ni itnserbeat', sm-
pies,- kesyboatrds 'and
singer Static's svoral
niusings that go from
sining to catchy dr ill
sergeant chants.
Bunt ssith sting titles
like "I'm With
Stupid" lyrics such as
"I really loved yout,
loxe dupling" (on
"Lose Dump") atid
short, simplistic yet
catchy songs, this
hand hardly seemts to
exude the stereotypi-
cal tuacloism of the
other groups on
Ozzfest's hill.
Static explasied,
"Yeah, she conisciouisls'

wate iito iii or assas

itsvolvsed isithi this sort
of music. We also con-
sciously kept te
soitgs short to keep
first-timers ,from get-
ittg bored 'awitus:'
"Thle dichotomy of
pluying the type of
msusic we do waith the
type of titngs I sing
about interests me,"Ite
said.
"I gase Lip atlong timue
ago singitig about the
wsrotigs in the ssorld and
in oilier people. Nosy I
just sing swords thsat
sound gosod to tme" con-
cuuled Static.
