HAROLD RAY LIVE IN CONCERT
And let’s not forget the boys in the backroom band: the boss honk of the squawnk, the whack crack of the rum-tee-tee-tum, the smooth move of the bu-bu-bu-ba-da, the castrato demidivinity of the ree-ree da-dahhh, the roller coaster ride of the piree-eep-eep (and let’s not forget what sound the mooly-cow makes!). They’re the ones who stretch the canvas, who stuff the rabbits into the the secret compartments of the tophats, to wit: the stooges who make the magic possible.
Getdown music for the strutting beast within? Absitively! Background music for some action in your sin-bin? You bet! Foreplay, I mean Foreground music for pure listening enjoyment? Fuquez oui! Guaranteed better than a poke in your eardrums with an icepick! If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin” (“Zeus gives no aid to liars,” as Homer put it)!
THE HEARTLIGHTS from Oakland, Calif. blend power pop punk with thumping garage guitars and female vocals. They bring something fresh to the genre with their take on songwriting, layering a mix of sweet—and sometimes self-deprecating—lyrics over catchy, toe-tapping rhythms. The band’s humor and high energy in both their live performances and recordings ensure everyone has a good time. (Razorcake)
An Oakland band that digs the musical styles of previous Golden eras and wants to rattle your bones.
