[WHERE THE BUFFALO ROAM] When Lewis and Clark traversed the continent, American bison—known scientifically as Bison bison—were ubiquitous: The “senery already rich pleasing and beautiful,” Lewis journaled, “was still farther heightened by immence herds of Buffaloe…which we saw in every direction.” Today, wild bison are well-nigh extinct. Portland trio Bison Bison, meanwhile, represents a band species not so much extinct as vestigial, plying their red-blooded, straight-shootin’ jams (and unself-conscious instrumental showboatsmanship) in basements and dives while awaiting the return of the once and future rock ’n’ roll. Bison Bison does stray from the herd into metalish territory—and stands out: The group won the first round of East End’s Portland Metal Winter Olympics this month.
