ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brian Kilcourse has been active in the San Francisco, California musical scene since the early 1970’s, when he was part of the power trio Mistress. Brian and his band The Guilty Saints have gigged throughout the U.S. west since 1978. The band features Brian on guitar & vocals, Chris Kilcourse on bass & vocals, Jeff Gillespie on drums, and Bob Littleton on pedal steel guitar. Fellow Bay Area musician John Keisling supplied the piano solo for "'Leave That Boy'.

"Reboot" means "restarting from the beginning", and that's the spirit that informed the project from its beginnings in 2008. Brian and the Saints found inspiration in the great popular recordings of the 60's and 70's (when it all started for these boyz). ReBooT was recorded 2008-10 in Walnut Creek, California, at RedHen Studios. All songs were penned by Brian Kilcourse ('Prayer' was co-authored with Mistress bandmate Greg Douglass, and 'Highway 104 (Bad Boy)' was co-authored by Brian and Robert Kilcourse). The album was mastered by Brian's bandmate from the 60's, Paul Bourassa, at Summit Recording in Trabuco Canyon, California.

Reboot's front cover is taken from a neglected billboard in the Charlestown Naval Shipyard in Boston, Massachusetts. The advertisement for new working boots provided the spark for the project title - "Reboot".

Brian has three other albums available on CDBABY: FREE FLYTE (Greg Douglass & Mistress, 1974), MEGATON MELODIES (2000), and UNFINISHED BUSINESS (2005).

Bordeaux
When great lyrics, fanciful melodies, strong musicianship and fantastic vocals blend together then those artificial boundaries of Rock/Country/Pop and Jazz fade away.

I think this CD has joy and invites you to listen because it offers layers and layers waiting to be discovered, like a great Bordeaux this project gets better and better with each sip.

Reboot Delivers
From the opening notes, Kilcourse and his Guilty Saints take listeners on a journey toward redemption. Along the way, using picture-perfect tones to paint the various landscapes, the band brings us to places of howling and sometimes aggression-fueled rock (The Hand that Feeds, Highway 104), well-crafted pop (Young & Fashionable), as well as some surprisingly fresh country-seasoned tracks. Personal favorites include the lushly layered Sin Palabras and the eerie, haunting, Southern-twinged Prayer. Great stuff.

Tasty!
Excellent release from Brian and the guys! There's something for everyone on this release that rocks the spectrum from a little country twang to pop-py feeling tunes to good old rock. It's a good listen if you like good music. If you don't like good music, you should start trying to, your momma would be proud!

Reboot - A Real Beauty
Wow, what great sounds. A mix of country, jazz and contemporary folk. Both vocals and instrumentals are very good. I had a couple favorites: This Old Shirt, Moon Over New Meadows, and the Relax Game. Then get ready for Highway 104. Keep your ear tuned to Bob Littleton on his steel guitar.

Great stuff. I have heard them live. they are great. And this album is the bomb. You got to get it. Already loaded on my Nano.
When is the next album coming out?

A great piece of work. I especially like the Relax Song and Sin Palabras, but the more up-tempo stuff is really good too. Ecclectic and most importantly...GOOD.

The perfect mix...
Brian and The Guilty Saints have done an all around masterful job - great writing, great playing, great recording, and great organization. Each song is good on its own, but to be truly appreciated you need to listen to the whole CD. First, after just a couple of songs comes the realization that there is an amazing combination of influences behind the music, making each song a wonderful discovery. Second, the number of styles matches the number of influences proving that Klcourse and The Saints can't be pigeon-holded into a single monotonouse genre. Third, after a number of listenings, you start to find multiple layers of meaning and message - each powerful on its own but really impactful when pulled together. If you want variety, discovery, enjoyment and a surprise "trompe d'oreille" this is the CD for you. Anticipating the next work from this team.

Nothing To Be Guilty About
Brian Kilcourse the The Guilty Saints have been making music since the '70s, and if they aren't careful they're going to someday be an overnight sensation. The selections on their Reboot offering are a blend of a little country, a little rock, a taste of jazz and more. I swore I heard Bob Dylan wander by a couple of times too. If you're looking for something beyond cookie-cutter, that you can understand and enjoy, but this down and REBOOT.

A Kick-back Sunday Afternoon
A perfectly put-together album, you need the whole thing to really appreciate it. Perfect for a fall Sunday afternoon, kicking back, watching the leaves turn and fall - a little bitter, a little sweet. That said, "Prayer" is my favorite!
