Product Notes

This Los Angeles-based outfit has found a way to remind everyone that 'rock' was once 'rock-n-roll.' 'We seem to make all the musical styles we love meet up at the crossroads, collide and come out all right,' says singer/songwriter and guitarist for the band, Jim Vitale. Those styles and sensibilities include rough and ready blues, country balladry, rollicking rhythms from New Orleans and Latin styles, as well as the edge the band gets from living in Southern California. 'We're not concerned with getting it right. We wanna get it wrong in only the ways we can,' says Vitale. And so they do on this debut with flourishes of acoustic and electric guitars, swirling Hammond B-3 organ and Solovox, Wurlitzer piano, a rhythm section that drives as much as it swings with drums/electric or upright bass, ghostly background vocals, a dog and other sundry noises. All this is offset by Vitale's voice, which can be described as Roy Orbison and Marty Robbins drinking John Doe's bourbon. The songs on this record are like snapshots with an almost cinematic quality that take the listener 'there' from the first note. Outsider's blues, wasting summer days and innocence, loves won and lost and even a murder are all chronicled in packages that are usually just over three minutes long. These songs are like a cross-section of what radio once was: a wide open format who's blurred boundries show how different styles and strains of music weave together to make something far more interesting. At left you may hear the first two minutes from each of the five songs offered on this debut release. Enjoy.
