I was specifically referring to your comment "...haven't heard much of them outside of web forums". Also, did Wolfmother have that sort of traction prior to releasing their first LP? With just a couple of EP's, and less than a year of actual touring under their belt, it's unlikely that GFV is at their "peak". AFAIK, Wolfmother were established in their home country of Australia and had released their fisrt album before they were known at all in the US (as you know a much larger, and more impactful market) or elsewhere. GVF has a much more compelling (and marketable story). In addition to having the chops/tunes (imho), they have youth (two members just graduated from HS), a familial relationship (3 bros and best friend), come from a small town in Michigan (US connection), an interesting story about the band's name (Gretna), are well-versed about their influences (Dad's albums), and, something else that doesn't hurt - looks. While I totally get that not everyone is going to like their music, some of the criticism on this thread makes zero sense and is based on something else besides GVF's musicianship (or lack thereof).
