Victory and Associates Better Luck Next Life Album Review

Victory and Associates Better Luck Next Life Album Review Victory and Associates Better Luck Next Life victoryandassociates.net After listening to this release a lot for this review, I have a driving desire to get a tour set up across the country featuring Victory and Associates, The Restorations, and Kite Party. Just tour all over the country for months at a time sharing these bands with desperate rock parched folks. What a great time those six months would be. One of my favorite songs on the album is “Everything’s Amazing (nobody’s happy). It has such a nice David Bowie flavor to it, but with some really nice punk rock guitar sliced in, nice hooks too. This is the song I would push at the radio station, featuring it in a new songs from cool bands you haven’t heard. Long title I know, but the radio station in my head is on 24 hours a day 364 days a year (one day off for Producers of a Crappy Podcast Day) and I have a lot of time to fill. Hey, there are only so many dick jokes I can work up. That’s not to say that the rest of the album isn’t enjoyable, it is. Very. The above song is just the one that I think listeners would connect with and it’s a nice shot out of the gate song for the band. Yeah, I know it’s song #5 on the album, this song just typifies the band’s sound for me. And how about that drum solo to end “Exasperated, inc”. Fucking Brilliant. That’s the kind of stuff that I wish bands would take more time to include on their releases. I mean who the hell ends a song with a nice drum dip? Victory and Associates, that’s fucking who. Boy, if I had lottery money, first thing I would do after writing and financing a comedy movie for Chris Elliott, would be to rent a luxury cruiser and take those three above bands on the road, slowly building a nice following. Playing to 50 to 100 people every night, sharing the music and letting people hear some good sounds that may not normally make it to their ears. “We’ll Have to be our own Hero’s” has a nice metallic guitar crunch to it. Shows a different side of the band I think, sure it’s not all out doom metal guitar, but it’s got a nice crunch to it that the other songs don’t, making it a good bit off...

Book Burners Music Review

Book Burners Music Review Book Burners People’s Songs Latest Flame Records Nice debut LP. Reminds me of the First Mind Extinguishers Cassette. The Mind Extinguishers were from Bloomington, IL and their first cassette tape was sent to us at WLKL in the early 1990’s. It was a good mix of rockin goofy charmers, and low dirty production. Catchy. This release reminds me of that a bit, that mid 1980’s to early 1990’s rock album, low on production tweeks. Also reminds me of The Slugs, a very poppy, catchy Chicago band whom I love, and whose Fort Fun Album might be one of my top ten favorite releases of all time. I only say might, because I haven’t sat down and thought about that subject for a long time, and I know that Fort Fun would be in the Top Twenty for sure. Okay, that’s good enough for references. Maybe you’ve never heard of either of these bands. Maybe you have and think that I am way off the mark. How about this, I get a light, and I mean light as a nose picking in public, early REM feeling from this as well. Heard of them? See I know of band’s outside of Illinois. Like the “woo-hooo” “hoo”s in “Who are you, my Darling”. Very appropriate. See bands like this are never just okay with straight ahead rockin’. It’s the little touches of flavor and “whoo-hoo”s that add something to a band’s gumbo. “Fireman” is a nice rocker. Solid 1980’s mid-tempo rock song. Nice that the band can switch the gears up a bit and play with a little fire and punch. If we intertwined some Blondie with some mid 1980’s California rock and some blasts of Ohio from Pagans, you might be able to fix a position onto the Book Burners location. I’d follow this band around, because I get the feeling and this is just pure gut talking, that this is a good solid rock band and following them around for a few gigs would prove to be an easy good time. You should give them a listen, it’s not going to change your life, but then this isn’t the fucking movie where you save the day and get all the pie. Or hang onto your Menudo records, see if I give a shit. Music Review by Brad Bugos –...
