roughideasfrontRough Ideas is a collection of the original demo versions of a dozen songs. They were recorded in my home studio to be played for producers and artists looking for material. Thanks to a multi-track recorder and my gift for performing adequately on several instruments, I am accompanied by The Band of My Dreams: ten imaginary virtuosi in purple suits who wait quietly while I figure out how the song goes, play and sing all night for free, and whose tastes and habits correspond precisely with my own. When you remember how difficult just one real musician can be, you will see why I love The Band of My Dreams. I re-recorded most of these songs in a Nashville studio for the Sugar Hill CD, Gentleman Of Leisure, this time with The Real Band of My Dreams – Jerry Douglas and his friends. But I still like these rough ideas.

cyComplete with names seemingly straight out of the pages of Maximumrocknroll, the five-piece rock & roll lineup of Cyanide Pills re-create the sounds of late-’70s U.K. punk in their music. If it sounds like a tried-and-true formula, that’s because it is. But the trick to their success is that they are very good at their craft. Vocalist Phil Privilege delivers catchy Buzzcocks hooks with snotty affliction, sounding hoarse and squeaky but tuneful, while the guitar tag team of Alex Arson and Si Pinkeye have not only named themselves with aliases nearly as cool as Johnny Thunders and Rat Scabies but they beat out barre chords with the same raw, energetic attitude. Drummer Chris Wrist and bassist Alarick “The Trick” never slow from their excitable “one-and-two-and-one-and-two” rhythm, and like their heroes, the Dickies and the Damned, they never wear out their welcome by playing for much longer than three minutes, keeping the songs short and sweet (or if you prefer, quick and nasty). Lovers of the first album will be pleased to find more of the same action-packed, classic-sounding ditties. They may claim to be Still Bored on their sophomore album, but they sound like they had a lot of fun writing and recording this one. Some of the best moments come midway through, when they change up their style slightly and flirt with power pop. Check out the “whoa oh ohs” in “I Let You Down,” the jangling open chords and handclaps of “Outta Nowhere,” and the sweet harmonies of “Formica” for signs of a possible new direction. It only seems logical to trace rock history and move closer to new wave by mirroring the Records and the Plimsouls once you master the art of British punk. Of course, they imitate this style perfectly too.
