ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Review From Vintage Guitar:
Vintage Guitar Magazine
June 2011
The Deadlies
Meet the Deadlies
Self-distributed
Though it's song titles imply this is "surf music," James Patrick Regan and the Deadlies boast plenty of other influences.
Yes, there is plenty of reverb-drenched guitar from Regan, and bassist Bob St. Laurent and drummer Jim Lang can ride a wave with the best of them, but "Mayhem at Pillar Point" is a straight ahead '60s garage rocker, while "Pig Farm" is a fun country tune with fine bending and twang. " Mojave Dry Run" is a creepy boogie with feedback and other cool guitar sounds. "Teahupo'o" has surf overtones, but it's really just a fine rock instrumental with a funky edge. "B6 Shuffle" is a funky shuffle where Regan's guitar supplies the fuel.
There is plenty of surf, "Save the Waves" and "Pier Pressure" are heavy on the feel and have nasty, ultra-hyper guitar work from Regan: notes bounce off the walls. On "Splat!," the boys show a sense of humor to go with their chops; a mash-up of the theme songs from "Banana Splits" and "Batman," it's the perfect mix of rock and surf.
While Meet the Deadlies is loaded with fine playing, it's also full of what most rock and roll forgets these days - plain ol' fun! - John Heidt

A Track by Track Review from Phil Dirt at Reverb Central:

The Deadlies - Meet The Deadlies

The Deadlies play a host of riffin' bluesy instros and selected tracks from disc 4 of Cowabunga - The Surf Box. The drums rock and the bass is rock solid. The guitar plays rootsy riff-based progressions a lot, some of which are really compelling. I'm not quite sure where to place these guys - part surf, blues based, country edged, and occasional roots rock.

Picks: Save The Waves, Pier Pressure, B6 Shuffle, Morgan Speaks, Mojave Dry Run, P. B. and J., Another Nashville Rash

Track by Track Review:

Teahupo'o - 3 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
Rhythmically writhing and pulsing, "Teahupo'o" seems to be just about that. Not particularly melodic, and very rock dominated. Tuff drums and bass, and kinda jammy and proggy.

Save The Waves - 4 stars
Surf (Instrumental)
This is a tuff cover of The Surfdusters' "Save The Waves." Solid, reverby, and powerful. It's loud and aggressive, and rides on a thundering beat. Melodically strong, hooky, and dramatic.

Pier Pressure - 3 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
Teisco Del Rey's "Pier Pressure" is darkened and toned down a taste from the original. Heavy and rough textured, with strong drums and pulsing bass.

B6 Shuffle - 3 stars
Surf Blues (Instrumental)
"B6 Shuffle" is an interesting track with dominant drums. The guitar riff is fun and entertaining. The underlying structure is blues, but there's significantly more than that going on.

Guitar Hero - 2 stars
Rock (Instrumental)
The drums pump and the bass grumbles as the guitar riffs on the wave they create. Verging on surf, "Guitar Hero" is mostly about the drums. The riff is too unchanging.

Morgan Speaks -3 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
"Morgan Speaks" is an almost jangly number that moves slowly and gently. It's quite mellow, with a visual melody line that paints a portrait of a rainy day on the coast. It's fairly unchanging, but it's so pleasant that the dependable nature of it adds to its charm. Very nice.

Mojave Dry Run - 4 stars
Surf (Instrumental)
"Mojave Dry Run" has a delightful surf rhythm. The cycling riff is intriguing and delivered with some textural and register variation, keeping it fresh. Its metronome-like reliability gives it a hypnotic feeling, though its angularity and tonal edge prevent slipping into that abyss. The long fuzz note bending is really a nice touch. Excellent!

P. B. and J. - 5 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
"P. B. and J." is way more tribal cool than the reliable peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This is a very moody number with an undulating rhythm and percussion. While quite simple, the beat really makes this stand out. Hard not to like.

Mayhem At Pillar Point - 3 stars
Surf Blues Rock (Instrumental)
"Mayhem At Pillar Point" is bluesy, riffy, and on the dark side. It's a very pleasant track with a jammy structure and hot rod roots driving sound.

Another Nashville Rash - 4 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
Interesting string bending and lumbering drums with moody bass. "Another Nashville Rash" cycles through a circular pattern as it opens. Once it arrives, there is a cool riff that's a bit like Armageddon's "Buzzard," but much lower energy and rounder sounding. Punchy and brooding with oomph. There's a bit of swamp rock and country jive here too.

Double H - 3 stars
Surf Blues (Instrumental)
"Double H" is a bluesy jam with baggies on. Stax-Volt angular and cycling structure.

Splat! - 3 stars
Surf Rock (Instrumental)
Starting off bit like "Echo Flower Blues," then migrating into a string of familiar riffs. Fun and light weight, with strong drums.

Pig Farm - 3 stars
Country Rock (Instrumental)
Circular country rockin' chicken lickin' fun with an edgy back porch sound. Get on your gingham and prepare to picnic in the hay.

Review from the Marin Independent Journal

The Deadlies: "Meet the Deadlies"

By Paul Liberatore

Posted: 07/30/2010 01:00:00 AM PDT

This Napa instrumental trio boasts that, unlike other surf bands, its members actually surf. But can they play? Judging from their debut album, they can shred with the best of them. And they sound like they're having a good time doing it.

Guitarist James Patrick Regan, who was born and raised in Terra Linda, wrote most of the CD's 13 tunes, including the hard-driving “Teahupo'o,” which opens the album with the sound of crashing waves and closes it with a cartoonish video rendition featuring the band in a knuckleheaded surf adventure.

Regan, drummer Jim Lang (who works for the Larkspur Public Works Department) and bassist Bob St. Laurent (who formerly lived in San Anselmo and Terra Linda) have clearly been influenced by surf music pioneers Dick Dale, the Belairs and the Chantays. Their twangy new wave surf sound also owes a debt to the Ventures and Duane Eddy.

Late-night TV watchers may recognize the Deadlies as the house band for “Creepy KOFY Movie Time,” airing from midnight to 2 a.m. Saturdays on cable Channel 13.

Regan has a talent for writing catchy instrumental hooks on tunes like the intriguingly titled “Mayhem at Pillar Point” and the surfer's stomp “Splat!” And “Morgan Speaks” is a beautiful ballad whose only weakness is that it cries out for lyrics and someone to sing them.

“Meet the Deadlies” was recorded at Ex'pression, the digital arts school in Emeryville, with Grammy-winning producer Jack Douglas. The band will be recording a sophomore CD with Douglas at the end of August, and maybe they'll bring in a vocalist. That way, they'll be a surf band that not only surfs, but also sings.

Buy It: “Meet the Deadlies,” the Deadlies, independent, CD Baby, $12.97, MP3 $9.99

Hear them: The Deadlies open for the B52s at 8 p.m. Aug. 9 at the Uptown Theatre, 1350 Third St., Napa; 707-259-0123; www.uptowntheatrenapa.com; $75 to $85
