Neverending Continuous Flow[CD]
The unique style of Juiced can mostly be classified as rock, with some funk and jazz influences thrown into the mix as well. The band is made up of Matt Cherchio playing guitar, Tim Martone on bass, Brian May playing drums, and Erik Spangenberg on vocals as well as some piano. Juiced was formed three years ago by Matt, Tim and Brian, who recorded a number of songs and even produced a self titled album and a demo togehther titled "The Groove (demo #1)" with Brian singing. However, in the summer of 2004, after a series of conversations the band decided to look for a new singer. Matt and Tim discovered that their camp friend Erik, who had obvious vocal talent, and lived only an hour away from the Montclair area may be able to be a fourth possible member of the band. At camp, Matt and Tim taught Erik a number of songs that they had written with Brian to see if Erik could possibly join the three in a recording and potentially join the band. A few weeks after camp ended, Erik drove down to Montclair and went through with a recording of "The Sun Is Mine." After listening to the result and experiencing the chemistry with a new vocalist, Erik became the fourth member of Juiced. Practices are limited to weekends due to driving constraints and distance between band members. A normal practice can consist of everything from recording a few songs, to rehearsing, and also writing new material. Juiced tries to get together every weekend and this proves to be difficult but the members manage to meet about twice a month. Some the inspirations that constantly fuel the music and ideas of Juiced include: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, U2, John Frusciante, Jeff Buckley, and The Smashing Pumpkins to name a few. Juiced is inspired by, and very open to many different styles of music all of which have at least a slight impact on the overall music created by the band and this is apparent upon listening to the diverse selection of songs the band has to offer. The album featured here, 'the Neverending Continuous Flow' is the newest installment from Juiced. The album was produced and recorded by the band all on an 8-track recorder over the past summer and in total took about 5 months to record and produce. We hope you enjoy the music featured on this album and if you like it enough we certainly hope you will consider purchasing it and looking further into the band.
