Truth Told Through a Series of Lies[CD]
The Nick Wolff Band plays a teste-fueled mix of old-school punk & garage-rock tunes, and they do it only as true man's-men can. The bands performance can only be described as a gay pride parade mixed with a campaign rally on stage. Like any good car wreck, you just have to stop and take an evil glance at the poor bastards that just got rear-ended. Formed in late 2005, The Nick Wolff Band includes former members of Pride of Ohio, F***in-a Squadcar and former Amps 2 Eleven, Southern Tresspass, Step Sister, Markey Ramone bassist Aaron Dowell. The band's 2007 debut LP, 'The Truth... Told Through a Series of Lies', was recorded and produced by Rancid, Dropkick Murphys engineer Ryan Foltz at Cleveland Audio Studios. Cleveland's Scene magazine had this to say about the release: 'Cle-Punk lifers will recognize most of the Nick Wolff Band as a reconstituted version of Pride of Ohio, the gritty punks who sang odes to the Ohio underground in the early days of the 21st century. Wolff's new band began as a goof, but took a serious turn when Amps II Eleven guitarist Aaron Dowell joined, playing rallying bass lines behind Perish's ecstatically anthemic guitar and Wolff's gruff vocals. They've all been around long enough to remember an obscure fact about their genre: Underneath it's grimy veneer, the best punk rock is fun. And Wolff's debut is the musical equivalent of cheap beer: unpretentious, good-time, no-message-no-problem rock. You can actually clap along to 'White Trash Love Story,' and the raucous 'Ready to Go' will surely incite some old-fashioned slam-dancing. 'You're stuck with us tonight,' growls Wolff on the opening track, as though that were a bad thing. It's totally not.' -DX Ferris.
