Product Notes

You'd expect a band called The Missiles of October to be made up of politicized young punkers or grunge rockers playing songs attuned to the name's explosive historical connotations. Instead, the band from Laguna Beach is made up of four literally grizzled veterans of the Orange County club scene. They're all in their 40s, old enough to remember the Cuban Missile Crisis, those scary days during October, 1962, when a nuclear shoot-out between the Americans and the Soviets seemed imminent. But the Missiles' themes aren't political, and the band's sound isn't measured in megatonnage. Instead, it mainly deploys moderately amplified acoustic guitars in an extremely well-wrought merger of folk, rock, blues and soul that ranges between Bob Dylan and Van Morrison as key influences and comes out sounding something like John Hiatt. Here's the present lineup: Poul Pedersen - Croonin' Frank Cotinola - bangin' on things Jimmy Perez - bass rhythms Richard Bredice - screaming guitar.
