It was great night of music at Great Scott's this past Saturday night : The newly renewed
Ducky Boys set up two days of shows for their CD release. "Chasing the Ghost" opens
up new spaces for the Ducky Boys to grow in with a wider range of songwriting.
Maybe Mark Lind should also think about booking clubs because this was one of the best line ups of groups I've heard in a long time.
The first group was new to me. I wouldn't pay that much attention to Energy if I just listened to their CD, "Invasions of the Mind", but live they had attractive qualities. The singer sang in a throaty growl when he wanted but also in a clear tone which helped to vary the songs. They did some simple and effective harmonies. One song (not on the CD) that hit was a playful one called "I Want to Kill Your Boyfriend". It's early still for Energy and they are worth checking out.
Tijuana Sweetheart is not new. I've seen them a few times going back to when they were called Vagiant. They are at least five times better since I've seen them last. They just have it all together. You could tell they are well rehearsed; they went from zero to sixty in a split second. No warm up needed. They are a joy to see and hear; they're full of fun and personality, as are their songs. There is lots of detail in the songwriting. They threw in Stiff Little Fingers' Barbed Wire Love and nailed it pretty good. This was a CD release party for them too.
As I see the Hudson Falcons set up they look
like an unlikely group of rockers but you don't judge a book by its cover and
sure enough they come out with a roar and are off. Each group so far has got
louder and the Falcons' volume makes earplugs ineffectual. The bass drum alone
forcibly hits the chest with each boom. The lead singer moves with gangly jerks
that evoke a puppet but this belies the force of his voice, guitar and lyrics.
This is no bull music. The Falcons have strong issues in the lyrics - one of
them a strident pro-union message. They bill themselves as playing "Working
Class Rock 'n' Roll" and for that I like them even more.
Suddenly I get banged and sprayed with beer - it's a mosh pit. Then another two bangs before I can get clear. I'm too old for this. (Revamped Quincy episode: Quincy : "These kids are killing themselves with this slam dancing." Policeman: "This victim is 60 years old." Quincy : "60? He deserves it!").
Having survived that I get to see the Ducky Boys come on to finish the night; they start off real punky not at all like the new CD but they have a lot to show. They line up three in a row at the front of the stage and become a juggernaut pounding it out. It was a lot of music for one night. Good for the soul in mid winter.
