Album Notes
"The sound is very much like The Raspberries and Cheap Trick, done in a tight 70’s FM style. . . .This is a band that understands the need for more cowbell and makes its debut a ton of fun. . . . highly recommended album!" - Powerpopaholic

“This should be blasting out of every car radio in America, frankly . . . one of my top five faves for the year.” — Steve Simels, PowerPop

"It's such a cool record." - Will Kimbrough

"Steve Deaton went back to his musical roots for his newest record—roots wrapped around loud car stereos and ZZ Top on an eight-track tape. . . .the band's new record showcases a number of [musical styles], moving from chiming power pop to boogie rock to rockabilly." -- Larry Morrisey, Jackson Free Press

The trio's debut LP is a blend of rockin' styles from the glory days of FM radio. Steve Deaton's songwriting is nostalgic without being simply derivative, and his narrative lyrics introduce the listener to equally reminiscent and well-developed characters: the high school "Duke," pot-smoking Christian rockers, depressive alcoholics, the charming drug-pushing brother, and even an iconic Rick Derringer. In addition to seven Deaton originals, the band pays tribute to some heroes with three reworked cover tunes: a psychedelic rendering of The Nazz, a Who-style romp through a Buck Owens classic, and a barnburner from little known Sun Records rockabilly cat Jumpin' Gene Simmons (who also happened to be Deaton's second cousin). These ten tunes were tailor made to spin at 33 rpm.
