I told you about the band Let Go before, but I don’t think anyone was paying attention. The reference was too deep in the post, and the recommendation was far too lukewarm.
So let me be clear:
This is the greatest new band I have discovered in years.
Their CD flat-out rocks. Anyone with decent taste in music must buy it.
Their stuff has elements of Jellyfish, Kevin Gilbert, and a little-known but classic band called Wasted Tape. The band has the rare combination of good singing, very loud guitars, and musical sophistication. The songs are not your typical three-chord nonsense. They are harmonically and rhythmically very interesting. There are hints of later Kansas and early Rush in there.
I’m telling you, this is great stuff.
They are so great, I investigated their history. The lead singer, Jamie Woolford, was previously in a band called The Stereo. Listening to clips at Amazon, I determined that this band also rocks, and ordered all three of their albums using a portion of a gift certificate lovingly donated by my mother-in-law.
Let Go will be playing in Anaheim during the first week of January. It’s our bad luck that we’ll be out of town.
P.S. Glen Phillips will also be playing in L.A. during the first week of January. He will be at Largo.
Man, we picked a lousy time to be out of town.
Go to all the above shows, and let us know how they were.
