Album Notes


"I have heard many media type folk classify this talent under Country, I shun the thought. Definitely a Rock-a-Billy outfit with a twist of groove. Having said this I could also imagine some boot scooting scantly-clad cheerleader-looking -types shaking their thang to this EP. Who are they? Two very cute and compact musicians by the name of Donnie Lochrie (guitar /vocals) and Marian Lochrie (bass guitar /vocals). Where on earth do you find these compact humans? Canada, of course. The country of flip top heads! Fresh, raw, organic and easy to consume, Kick in the Eye are not about complicated production suites or tacky pop producers. They are about honest easy listening rock 'n' roll music. A nice website that is easy to navigate filled with great info and surprises!" Melanie D (Buzzbox)

"Kick in the Eye... serves up hip-shakin' boogie-tonk that rocks like the Ronettes meets the Stones. Bliss out..." The Vancouver Sun

"Life would be a lot more beautiful if, instead of brooding sourpusses like the White Stripes, this duo were in command." FYD Magazine

"If you like great, no nonsense rock 'n' roll in the old sense, then this band is certainly going to make a big impression" hEARd Magazine

NOTE: All Kick in the Eye CDs come in eco-friendly packaging, which is recyclable, biodegradeable, and free from plastic trays.

a perfect 5 song ep
Kick In The Eye, “Rock And Roll Needs A…” (Indie Release)
The husband and wife team of Donnie and Marian Lochrie have put together a perfect 5 song ep here. “Shake Yer Hips” is a funky ZZ Top meets The Go Gos version of the Slim Harpo classic. Marian Lochrie’s voice was made for rock ‘n’ roll. She’s got the right attitude and just the right amount of country in her voice to flavor things perfectly. Mary Huff from Southern Culture On The Skids is the only other woman that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when she gets down on something like “Nitty Gritty”. Donnie’s voice meshes well with his bandmate and wife for a mix that anyone would dig. “Hurricane” has all the Beach Boys type harmonies and hooks on the chorus, “Stop Messin My Heart Around” is Chuck Berry meets Brian Wilson on a long lost episode of The Monkees. “No Depression” gives me the Jason and the Nashville Scorchers fix I’ve been needing for a long, long time and they pull off A. P. Carter’s classic without sounding hokey or sarcastic. They seem to truly love country and rock ‘n’ roll like both were their children. No matter how different they may be you still love them equally. And, lastly we have “Thirty Miles”, a Buddy Holly stomp that rounds out the disc quite nicel
