Thadeus Gonzalez - Utopian Society 2014


Recommended Posts

Been going through my fairly large folder of albums to get to.

Saw this one and couldn't remember it at all, so I played a few songs expecting something pretty average.

It's actually a pretty damn good album.
Couldn't find a thread here for it.

Bump this because it's a shame that this album hasn't been heard (apparently)

I've listened a tonne of times and found that I didn't post my two favorite tracks



If this album was released this year it would have made my top 3 easily.

Oakland-based singer/songwriter Thadeus Gonzalez has earned international critical acclaim, and has been called "a front man to watch" with "an arena looking and sounding attitude."
Over the last several years Thadeus has fronted several bands within the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area and by 2010 he enjoyed opening for various high-profile gigs throughout the west coast and commendable radio and video play before pursuing a solo career with Thadeus Gonzalez in 2014.
A credible songwriter and guitar player, Thadeus released his debut solo record, “Utopian Society” in 2014. The title track demonstrates total rock bombast, alt and punk influences come through in “Your Needle Scratches My Vinyl” and “Literally.” While the lyrics are evocative and unusual, Gonzalez’s unique writing style is most evident in the sexy, moody “Our Connection” and the vulnerably revealing ballad, “White.” Typical review: "Around each corner a total surprise, which keeps “Utopian Society” fresh and relevant sounding from track to track.”
Utopian Society was produced by Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Lit, Good Charlotte) and recorded/mixed by Kyle Homme (Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish).  Dennis (Face to Face) and Scott Shiflett (Face to Face, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes) contributed guitars, Pete Pacheco (Electric Sister) was on bass, and Nathan Walker (Lit) on drums.
In 2017 Thadeus Gonzalez was signed to Spectra Music Group and his second solo record, “Silver Inside” is scheduled to be release in January 2018. The first single, also title Silver Inside is currently available on iTunes and has enjoyed a phenomenal amount of attention with national radio and video play.
Silver Inside features Dennis Hill and Thadeus on guitars, Scott Richards on bass and Nathan Walker (Lit) on drums. Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Lit, Good Charlotte) also produced and Kyle Homme (Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish) recorded and mixed the record at The Lodge.
Thadeus has opened for KISS, Motley Crue, Slash and in 2017, Bon Jovi at the SAP Center in San Jose. Current performances are scheduled throughout the west coast for the remainder of 2017.


Vocals & Guitar, Thadeus Gonzalez
Bass, Scott Reategui Richards
Drums, Rob Tucker

You people are missing out.

Just someone say "yeah it was OK I guess" and I'll let it go.

Either that of Geoff can come in, listen to a few seconds from a couple of songs and say "that was dog shit rubbish"

Then I'll be happier...

I'm here to hear new music, and I get a lot of new music from here.

Like Christmas, it's also nice to give, and it's not often that I find a band that is new to most people here.
