Album Notes
Since 2001, Deadline Friday has focused on making pure, unapologetic rock 'n' roll. Their first album, "Wear Yourself Worn," released in 2004, earned them die-hard fans and rave reviews: "The complex, tight but lulling vocal harmonies are almost velveteen to the ears while unabrasive cooperating guitar progressions and solos take center stage."" With "Days Gone," produced by Jeff Berkley, the band is ready to soar into the rock atmosphere. "Days Gone" captures the essence of a Deadline Friday live show, where your senses swim in the hypnotic polyrhythmic parts that blend seamlessly to create true rock paradise. From the first note to the last cymbal crash, you're part of a mesmerizing musical experience that holds you in its grips and weaves, swirls and twists you in all directions. Join the revelers, the boogiers, the free spirits and the rock 'n' rollers who make their way to Deadline Friday shows and find out just what exactly these boys will whip up in their spot-on mix of American rock and inspired improvisation as they celebrate their new album "Days Gone." Be among the many that sip from the intoxicating rock of Deadline Friday, and still thirst for more.

Very Good (It's About Time!)
Finally the album is here, and it was worth the wait! Overall a great piece of work. Fans of the band will surely recognize some songs from their live performances such as Sweet Breathin Thing, Jesse James, Meet Me on the Road and Nogales. Whoever engineered the sound of the guitar on most of the solos hit the nail right on the head. It sounds excellent! I liked the rustic design of the cd and sleeve as well. The only knocks I have, (and this is nit-picking), are the snare drum is hard to distinguish in certain songs (Sweet Breathin Thing, etc), and I didn't care for the sustained mandolin parts in Meet Me on the Road. Other than that, great job guys! What up PB!

Wear Yourself Worn
by Chuck Schiele

Here's a great bunch of tunes that collectively straddles a fine line between the AOR rock moves and motifs (? la the '70s) and the baby steps of a new thing altogether - along the lines of the jam-band idea. The guitars kick ass the way guitar players like 'em. The vocals are also very strong; three of the members sing very capable leads, which in turn leads to some very tasty harmonies. And it boogies in a way that has 'deadheads' dancing with white-collar babes when you're out at the clubs. They're a serious band with a casual way of making it all sound like it's happening for the first time. And that's fun.

Bill Coomes plays drums and sings. Jim Diez plays guitar and sings. Mike Spurgat plays guitar and sings. Claudio Gutierrez plays percussion, while Earl Schreyer keeps things down on bass. There's a short list of sit-ins, most notably the keyboard contributions by Dave Yaden. Each is a fine player on his own responsibility, but the thing they do right on this record is play together, weaving their way through stops, runs, and lots of music details. Naturally, this is self-produced with the enlistment of engineer Jeff Forrest at Doubletime Studios.

Jealousy is a great classic rocker at heart, possessing one of the better lyrics and catchiest vocals along the way. Great sounding guitar solo! Meet Me on the Road also owns a great vocal line and lyric but expresses itself as an acoustic ballad and also has one very beautiful arrangement that includes mandolin. My favorite two tunes.

Deadline Friday has a big sound - great sounding guitars blending through classic gritty warm tones, big bold eagle-esque vocals, and a rhythm section that evokes the arena more than the bar down the street.

Nogales is a great example of a band enjoying a cold sweaty beer on a hot sweaty stage in a big sweaty jam. As an instrumental, my guess is that it was probably written 'round 4 a.m., right about the time everyone was a little too buzzed to sing, which is oftentimes when the best jams begin. There's some pretty cool magic in this tune. Angel wraps the CD up nicely in a three-part vocally driven lullaby supported by one pretty (but not at all wimpy or corny) fingerpicked acoustic guitar.
