Red White & Blues

Remember when Skin released old school hard rock?

Remember when there was a band called Jagged Edge that wasnt some R&B act who didnt have the originality to not steal another bands name?

Then Red White & Blues is the band for you.

Featuring the reunion of Matti Alfonzetti and Myke Gray, its a proper throw back to the Jagged Edge days.

Saw them support Steel Panther a few weeks ago, and was expecting a blues based band, but got a proper rock band.

 

Their album is due for shipping right about now, but only 1000 copies are supposed to be made.

Website says 878 in stock now.

 

Album is £10 plus postage (£2 to UK, £5 to Europe and £7 to rest of world)

Samples are available on the main site.

I just heard Alfonzetti's new solo cd, and I hope Red,White,and Blues is more hard rocking than that one. Not saying that the Alfonzetti is bad or anything, but my taste for music (for right now anyway's )is something with a little more balls.

I do think £7 is a lot, but if you have paid £1 then the person is losing money. Basic airmail for a single CD to Australia would probably cost something like £2 to £2.50 just for postage alone.

Got it this morning. Great album and is defo a contender for a spot in my top ten for the year.

 

 

geez, I'm wanting the postage costs to be more economic!!!

Someone talk to the band on behalf of us international fans :)

There was a letter in the package with Myke asking for feedback as to favourite song, value for money, would you see them live etc etc etc

One of the questions said "Would I recommend the album to friends" to which I pointed out that I had recommended the album before it came out based on the live show I saw, and the only thing putting international customers off was the high postage.

I only juat looked in the thread now as I feared it'd be a thread for a bluesy Skin-type band, but I'm now interested. Like Andre, I believe the shipping is criminal and would never pay that, but I would love to hear this mofo. Love the new Alfonzetti.

There are some bluesy numbers on it, but the rockers more than make up for them.

That said, the bluesy tracks are pretty good.

 

Songs like Shame Shame & Stand up for rock & roll are great songs, and were easily recognisable from when they played them live.

More like Jagged Edge than Skin?

On the rockier stuff, defo a throwback to Jagged Edge, and not just because its Matti singing.

Its not "blow the roof off" rock, if you get my meaning, its just that a song like Shame Shame for instance has more in common with a song like Rosy Rosy than anything off of a Skin album.

 

The support slot I saw them play really impressed me as they had the crowd going and singing along to songs they didnt even know, which is an achievement in itself, but when you consider the kind of audience that Steel Panther attracts, thats an even bigger compliment.

I will say though that the live show was probably a lot rockier than the album, but the same could be said of the new Reckless Love album as well.

Listened to this one today too. I can't really begrudge the guys for doing this and I guess it's a pretty good bluesy rock album. But it's definitely for those who like the blusier, more rocking and less melodic side of Jagged Edge. I personally loved the more melodic / commercial songs on the Jagged Edge debut. But I guess this is pretty decent for a sold hard rock disc... just not really my thing.

 

I will say, though, that 'A little too late' is excellent - on par with the best stuff on JE's debut and the new Alfonzetti disc (which crucifies this, imo). I actually wish that song was on the new Alfonzetti disc. ;)

 

'The best is yet to come' is a great melodic rock tune too. And 'Road to hell' is a good hard rock closer.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
