Album Notes
Bastille is:
David Cawkwell - Vocal, Guitar Arthur Graves - Guitar
Tom Burick - Bass Guitar, Vocal Paul Fraunfelter - Drums

Original material bands usually cringe at the ubiquitous question, "who do you sound like?" Unfortunately, if you want to be heard, it's a question one must answer. Let's see... Tom is an avid Rush fan. Arthur and Paul both agree on progressive, but where Arthur branches out to Goth and Metal, Paul prefers Classical and old Captain Beefheart recordings. Dave's influences read like a list of great radio hits. They all love King Crimson.
Where does that leave us? Well, Bastille's sound is vaguely reminiscent of many of the harder edged and progressive 80's bands; sort of like Mission UK-meets-a-younger-Peter Gabriel. On the other hand, a recent video of an onstage jam eerily recalls footage of the Jefferson Airplane during their heyday. What is known for certain are two things; audiences respond enthusiastically to Bastille's performances and dancing is frequently spotted in the audience. David Cawkwell still writes music and plays with his 25+ year band, WHEN THUNDER COMES. In 2006 a 16 song CD was released called "Farewell Nostradamus. " Oct. 2012 Dave Cawkwell records several songs from the Bastille era on his new CD "Taken All You Can".

Regal Beagle Music Review

It rocked. I mean it really rocked! It kicks arse!
I highly recommend this CD. This CD should be a part of any music fan's collection. I see this CD being entered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Like I said before, it rocks! Braveheart brough tears to my eyes. Shadowgirl...I can't go on any longer. All I can say is, Awesome!

Off With Your Head
Overall, Bastille plays kind of like a Rush-inspired jam band. There are some other influences in their sound, such as Jethro Tull, Echo and the Bunnymen and some ELP. Call me crazy, but I thought I heard a hint of Iggy Pop, as well.

Some tracks, like "Fistful of Dreams" and "I Have Doubts" have more of a pop sound, while tracks like "Braveheart", the particularly dark "Chosen Ones" and, to a lesser extent, "Voices" have a deeper, almost gothic, sound to them. In addition to some great power pop, progressive-type tunes, they can also slow things down, as they do in "Anything". Throughout, however, they seem to have a more or less consistent idea of what it is they want to do with their music.

The vocals may be the band's strongest suit: at times sounding like some sort of cross between Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) and Brad Roberts (Crash Test Dummies). Again, the influences don't stop there; "Circle World" is a nice ballad that sounds like it could have been done by Donovan. Despite these strong vocals, one of the disc's best tunes may be "Snowslider" - an absolutely Rush-esque instrumental.

Overall, this is a great disc to pop in and unwind to. If you're looking for some cool tunes, solid riffing and perhaps a little bit of psychedelia there's no need to lose your head - just go grab some Bastille.
