Album Notes
PALOOKA is big thick two guitar rock the way God intended it. Singer Rob O’Neal belts out melody lines full of emotion and purpose with tenacity. Ric Vaughan and Glen Logan trade flurries of devastating and searing guitar punches reminiscent of a barroom brawl. All of which sits on the rock solid pounding foundation built on the talents of Howard Binner on bass and the percussive mauler Jason Reavis on drums. PALOOKA clearly borrows from their past contributions to bands like Overlord, Bible Stud, and Ruester while bringing those and other influences together to offer a complete Hard Rock package full of moxie, swagger and grit.

What's Wrong With Wanting Everything is not only the title of PALOOKA’s debut cd
and the accompanying title track but it also seems to be their approach to putting
together an album. The 11 songs on this cd cover a lot of ground which at times
makes it hard to fathom how all these often divergent tunes sit so closely
together, so comfortably. The good news for the listener is that they do.

How you ask? It may be the fact that PALOOKA brings together musicians who have
been haunting the Seattle scene from the pre grunge days to present (yes there was a pre
grunge Seattle music scene). PALOOKA consists of former members of
Overlord, Bible Stud, Ruester, Boss Martians, Razrez, Aggressive Nature, Devil's
End Drive, Debutant, and Born Naked. Combined with the influences PALOOKA sites
ranging from Elton John and Louis Armstrong to Bowie/Ronson, KISS, Cheap Trick,
Alice Cooper, UFO, Hanoi Rocks, Smack, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Cult, The Ramones, The Rolling
Stones, Motorhead, Motley Crue and many more the picture gets a bit clearer.
Topped off by the obvious Evel Knievel hero worship that asserts itself from
their younger days as demonstrated by the cover photo we start to get a glimpse
of how they pull it off.

What's Wrong With Wanting Everything goes from heavy and loudly extroverted at
times to subdued, self critical and introspective. Not afraid of guitar solos,
or quiet acoustics the musical pallet here ranges from hard rock with metal
tinged fury to something approaching alternative and at times even bluesy. Songs
on this cd deal with subjects ranging from larger social commentary with songs
like Ugly American, and Dime Store Jesus, to the loss of a close friend and
brutal self examination on Sun Will Rise, and Golden Boy, to a gratuitous pursuit
of life in the adrenaline fueled moment on the title track.

Ambitious? Sure but it works. According to PALOOKA there is nothing wrong with
wanting everything and their new cd proves that they just may be on to something.

PALOOKA’s, What's Wrong With Wanting Everything cd is set for a June 28th 2011
release date.

Some of the great bands that have influenced PALOOKA are: AC-DC, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Angel City/The Angels, David Bowie, Brides of Destruction, Bush, Cheap Trick, Cracker, Dead Boys, Elton John, Faith No More, Garbage, Gilby Clarke, Girl, Hanoi Rocks, Iggy (with and w/o the Stooges), Jane’s Addiction, Johnny Cash, Judas Priest, KISS, Kix, Louis Armstrong, Mark Knopfler, Mick Ronson, Mott the Hoople, Motorhead, Motley Crue, Papa Roach, Paul Westerberg, PIL, Plasmatics, Queen, Slade, Smack, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cult, The Panic Channel, The Ramones, The Replacements, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Who, Thin Lizzy, TKO, U2, UFO, Van Halen and more.
