A Million Dollars Worth of Music

by The Fucking Eagles

This Tacoma band's debut album is a sweat-soaked dance party of old school garage-rock injected with high-energy R&B in ways reminiscent of modern-day rockers like the Hives and the Oblivians, not to mention a variety of more vintage sources including Mitch Ryder, the Human Beinz and hometown heroes the Sonics

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE TOTEM IS STRONG
"The Fucking Eagles are the niftiest fake band of the half-moment. A mutantry of contentious quality that proffer the new old-timey, void of a coherent thrill line. Posing interlopers, hack-happy chancers. Self-aware maladroits ghost-smithing varied scraps and hooks yoinked from a dusty American R&R narrative to scratch out a shameless howl & dumb wholly steeped in barren third-world city sophisticrap affectations.

Starting as the unfunniest of jokes in 2005 in the arsenic drenched, barren landscapes and history-heavy bar back-rooms of industrial old town Tacoma, Warshington and imbibed on shared no-lifetimes of toxic smelter air and Rosalie ghost stories, the quattro seek to serve up all that smoky sweet raw-packed haunted-city ware in loud, can't danceable, junk soul form.

Never mind the caustic name and the faux-tough airs. Ragged good-timey frug & shug is the totem - cooing with the excellently bedheaded masses to unfold arms, unfurrow brows, get on the feets and fuck out loud right along with as they lame their place in rock'n'roll non-history. The soul-full-of-it and the soul-less, the doo wop and the doo wrong, Brill Building tenant discards, and all manner of clunky rhythm'n lose not-so-originals and shoulda-beens/sorta-weres from a mutant cadre of inspirators: Gino Washington, Kitty Love, Oblivians, The Syndicate, Bobby Long, Chuck Willis, Flat Duo Jets and more we won't implicate here - all now unwilling recipients of an expertless musical mistreatment and stuffed into the mercilessly contrived and ineptly concocted Fucklets' repertoire."

Emily Y

SPIN
"Though their name possibly stems from a hate-filled music review in The Big Lebowski, these Tacoma, Washington rockers are anything but slackers. Their studio full-length debut, ‘A Million Dollars Worth of Music’, produced by Johnny Sangster (Mudhoney, The Briefs, The Makers, Murder City Devils), was issued via local label Gaptooth Jukebox earlier this year.

The Fucking Eagles are bad boys with hearts of gold, flip-flopping between rowdy and righteous. Often compared to the now-defunct Oblivians, the raucous quartet is a distinct breed, employing strutting lyrical antics and infectious, lo-fi guitar chords. Album opener "Baby I'm Coming Home" promises loyalty with unwavering drumming and classic Little Richard-like howling to solidify singer Atkins' case. The instant foot-stomper "He Won't Love You Like I'll Leave You" includes a ballsy anthemic hook not suitable for print while "Out of This World" returns to the wholesome side with a 1960s surf guitar riff and catchy punk rock sing-along vocals."

"This Tacoma band's debut album is a sweat-soaked dance party of old school garage-rock injected with high-energy R&B in ways reminiscent of modern-day rockers like the Hives and the Oblivians, not to mention a variety of more vintage sources including Mitch Ryder, the Human Beinz and hometown heroes the Sonics. The songs are split evenly between covers and originals, but whether they're digging up old soul chestnuts from Gino Washington and Sir Mack Rice or tearing into one of their own catchy originals, they bring a feral intensity and unbridled enthusiasm that's utterly refreshing."
