I heard this band originally on Mancow's Morning Madhouse, he played Lover Call, and I was hooked, not really a classification for them, accept, pretty raw and hard rocking musically, with a black dude singing, but not in the conventional form of singing! I love them, but know virtually no other fans? any of you guys fancy them?

I heard great things so I took some time to listen... and that time lasted about 2mins. I found these guys painfully boring. Almost like a poorer version of Hootie and The Blowfish, imo.

Geoff! I could have told you that they werent for you! but if you think they sound like hootie and the blowfish, it's cause they have a black singer, and thats the only reason!

Agree, no Hootie similarity at all.

 

I have 2 releases of there's and quite like them both, nothing earth shattering, but imho, some nice rock n roll!

I wish I did, as of today I have "We Sweat Blood" and "Sleep Is The Enemy". And again, I like both discs a lot, but the appeal might miss some of the blinder wearer's on the board...

Yeah guys, I should add they remind me of Hootie and the Blowfish... not that they sound like them specifically.

 

Maybe it is the black lead singer, maybe it's the ultra-safe plodding along songs... I don't know, it's just what I thought when I heard them. ;)

I dont know what you heard Geoff? they kind of rock bro! I never heard anything by bootie and the hoefish that remotely rocked! hey have you ever spelled your name Giuff to fuck with people? you know like Giuffria? but they are just hard rocking garage rock! with a totally crazy singer! don't start telling people they sound like Hootie, or i'll start making Michael Bolton, and Wham references to some of your bands!!!

:lol: Yeah, my opinion on this band is definitely not one to take any note of. As I said, it was made in haste... I just know for sure these guys were definitely not for me.

Cheers,

Yea these boys rock! They get a lot of airplay here in their homeland! You guys have to hear the song Bounce. Lovercall may be my second fave Danko tune, but I love Bounce infinitely more. If it doesn't get you moving you're dead!

 

They are opening for Sebastian Bach and GNR in January so I'll get to see them live. I think the Phil Lynott comparison is a fair one. Definitely a very modern Lizzy vibe imho. Very cool! :headbanger:

Not too bad. Reminds me of a harder rocking Hootie. "Code Of The Road" and "Bounce" are pretty good rockers...Takes a little getting used to.

I love there shit, they are nuts to, they not only sat in on the whole 4 hrs of Mancows Morning Madhouse, they seemed to really like to do the Phone Scams! and the drummer almost had the guy in the 5 star hair saloon in the bottom of the building Mancow broadcasts out of, you know the one they prank call, and fuck with him about being queer(though he's not) the drummer had him on the line for almost 3 minutes, slowly working in very inteligent questions, but with each question, a little more fruity content was squeezed in, he was genius, Ive never heard Thomas get that lead on, during a prank call, he generally picks up the first minute that it's one of Mancows obnoxious calls, even the good callers dont get past the minute and a half mark, but Dankos Drummer I believe it was had thomas in the middle of discussing if a brazilian wax could possibly make him become aroused? and Thomas started saying "well I guess technically it could, but weve never known a gentelman to really find it arousing" and then he stopped, mid sentence, and said, "you know who becomes aroused, when that Erich fuck from the radio station upstairs gets his done, he enjoys the cucumber treatment while" Click!!! it was fucking hilarious, then Danko, I guess thats the black singer, would call houses and do his scream and if it was a woman answering, he would talk real normal and act like he was a specialist, doing a one time throught the suburban neighborhoods, showing stay at home moms the proper technique involved in doing the Lover Call! fucking classic, none of cows guests get into doing that shit very oftern, I wish I could find it to donwload, it was classic!

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
