Album Notes
Welcome to the world of 1984, where Rock & Roll still lives! Many groups are classified into so many different categories that is boggles the mind.

1984 refuses to fall into the cracks of Rock, Pop, Metal, Retro, or whatever the flavor of the month is.

That is why they simply choose to call themselves "America's Last Rock & Roll Band".

In 1999, the band was formed as an 80's cover band, and proceeded on an exasperating summer schedule including clubs, private events, fundraisers, and even opening for 70's and 80's superstar Eddie Money.

Seeing the immense response to their show, 1984 decided to start writing.

After playing the new songs for a few months in the clubs they soon became the most requested part of the show, prompting the recording of "Casual Hello".

Casual Hello combines a unique blend of rock styles.

It's almost a "smorgasbord" of rock & roll.

Guitar styes ranging from guitar rock & blues, vocal styes of metal, blues, and soul, and intricate double bass beats give "Casual Hello" a unique feel.

Introspective and meaningful lyrics give the album a social conscience, and tackle some difficult subjects as well as some fun ones.

All in all, 1984's release "Casual Hello" provides you the listener with music that you can enjoy on many levels, and still have some good old fashioned Rock & Roll fun.



to write a review


cool melodic hardrock band
This American band is called 1984 and musically they also sound a bit like 1984, but with an
updated sound. 1984 is a cool melodic hardrock band that sounds like a mix between
FIREHOUSE, VAN HALEN, SKID ROW and HEAVENS EDGE. The vocals and guitarwork
are a bit rough, but the overall sound is very melodic. There are 9 songs on the album that
has got a fair production. My favourite songs are opener "Take me home" (cool 80s typed
uptempo melodic rocker a la AUTOGRAPH, HEAVENS EDGE & HELLIP), "Rainin' in
Memphis" (good semi melodic rockballad a la FIREHOUSE), "My eyes" (melodic
rockballad) and closing track "American dream" (another ballad). This is a nice band to check
out if you like any of the mentioned melodic hardrockbands.

"...powerful melodic hard rock"
This album from the American band 1984 is very peculiar due also to the voice of Matt Bunch (also on bass) that has similarities with Lemmy (Motorhead), even if the sound is a powerful melodic hard rock. It is unusual, in facts, to listen such a singing, typical of heavy metal, on tunes like "Light my fuse" (a heavy blues with rhythm), "Take me home" (class rock close to Heaven's Edge) or "Casual hello" and "Rainin' in Memphis", two nice semi ballads.
Anyway the final result is good and the keys of Ben Arrington give the album that necessary plus. You'll surely sweat listening to the mammoth hard'n'roll "Heartbreaker", then you'll rest with the ballad "American dream". 1984 have still to work, but the basements are very good.
