The Secrets
Time Will Come
(Secret Deals Production)

In truth, the Australian combo called The Secrets is really the work of only two musicians, Peter Rechter and Graham McCoy. However, while the music emanates from this limited source, the references it draws upon is nearly boundless. Even after a cursory listen to the duo's new opus, Time Will Come, it becomes clear there's quite a bit of history held within these grooves.

Why it should sound this way is really no mystery considering the fact that the Secrets' roots stretch back to a succession of earlier Aussie bands that hit their heyday back in the mid '60s, an era these songs reference in every detail. In fact, listening to the riveting and rollicking "Claudette Jones," the brass-infused "Think About the Boy" and, for that matter, any of the other tunes that occupy this extremely engaging ten-song set, is like boarding a time machine for a fab foray back to the '60s. Unlike many in today's current crop of power pop purists, Rechter and McCoy aren't afraid of making music that's primarily catchy and commercial, devoid of the angst and attitude that often creeps in just when it seems the mood's most merry. Aside from the fact that it's astounding how much music can come out of a core of only two musicians, as manifested in these infectious, articulate arrangements, The Secrets clearly live and breathe this style and sound. It's so obviously grabbing and infectious, it's impossible not to get caught up in their enthusiasm.

It would be a shame if The Secrets remain a secret to the world at large. After all, each and every song contains the kind of happy-go-lucky groove that once made Top 40 radio such a joyous and magical experience. Sadly, the music that fills the airwaves these days is no longer so sparkling and spontaneous. It would be nice to think The Secrets' time will come, as the album implies, and they'll lead a charge back to a brighter, buoyant approach. Until it does, allow this album to suffice. http://www.secretdeals.com.au

The Secrets
Time Will Come CD

'The Secrets' from Melbourne Australia have produced a great new CD 'Time Will Come', saturated with 60's riffs, hooks & melodies, a must for anyone interested in sixties pop brought up to date for the 'noughties'.

The Secrets, offspring of the Aussie 60's cult band, The Tol Puddle Martyrs, have remained deeply influenced by the sounds of the 60's and have kept this spirit alive with integrity and ingenuity.

The CD features 10 well crafted tracks, as well as a selection of hidden goodies and video clips revealing past secrets.

The Secrets crash onto your CD player with 'Claudette Jones', a wild 60's punker, with biting fuzz guitar and snotty vocals. Working their way through a collection of pure pop and power pop gems from the buoyant 'Good Times Bad Times' and 'Feel Pretty Good' to the infectious 'Think About The Boy 'and 'S.O.S.' as they dream, pump, bop and rock their way through their album to the moody, magnificent, Tol Puddle Martyrs psychedelic drenched hit from 1968, 'Time Will Come'.

Not bad for guys who could have kicked the habit years ago and remained elusive cult figures.

"Time Will Come" - the Secrets
April 2002 Vol 4, No. 2"The Lance Monthly" archives - Tom Hinders: www.oberlin.edu/serials/lance/lancemonthly.html
This CD is an essential companion to "Tol-Puddle Martyrs," as Peter Rechter was one-half of the Secrets, which also starred Graham McCoy.

The music of the Secrets serves to be a natural extension of what Tol-Puddle Martyrs were known for, meaning their missives are emphasized by heart, soul and radio-friendly motions by the mile. Considering these cuts were recorded between the years 1977 and 1983, the sound and overall execution arguably differs from what Tol-Puddle Martyrs were laying down, but before you sixties obsessives jump to conclusions because you feel anything created after "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was released and the rock community turned serious and progressive isn't worth listening to, read on . . .

In a nutshell, "Time Will Come" is a banner repertoire of new wave oriented rock and roll, with a healthy shot of pop flavored punk spunk thrown into the cuisine for good measure. Each and every song on the disc is ridiculously contagious, sparked by hooks impossible to shake and a continuously festive vibe. If you count artists such as vintage Elvis Costello, the Jags, the Records, Squeeze and Nick Lowe among special favorites, then you're sure to fall head over heels in love with the Secrets.

As is the situation with all musical trends, there are shameless pretenders, but that definitely doesn't apply to the Secrets. These guys already had the spirit running their blood. Choppy rhythms, clipped Merseybeat splashed vocals and ringing guitars accent the numbers on "Time Will Come," so what is there not to dig about the record?

The Secrets perform cleverly crafted, pop rock magic, dripping with skinny tie and checkered tennis shoes sensations that actually remain ageless. And the playing is as frisky as a young kitten! Great music to dance to while singing along with, that is for sure. "Time Will Come" also includes a Video Time Caspule, so slip it into your computer to experience an extra bout of joy! http://www.secretdeals.com.au/History.html

The Secrets
Time Will Come
Secret Deals
Too many power pop bands concentrate on their craft and worry about its form and trappings so much that they lose sight of their purpose - kick ass music. For some reason, Australian bands rarely make that mistake. The Secrets sure don't. Time Will Come opens with one of the best 1-2 punches in a long, long time. "Claudette Jones" is a blistering garage-tinged rocker and "Good Times/Bad Times" sounds like an Everly Brothers/Buddy Holly collaboration, complete with perfectly corny handclaps. "Think About The Boy" is an irresistible bubblegum/ska hybrid. These boys - actually just a pair, but sounding like a full fledged band - have got hooks up the ying yang and manage to take pop elements from rock's prehistory right up through the 80's synth band heyday and mate them to classic pop songs that sound both familiar and brand new. The only less than wonderful track is the Carsy sounding "Feel Pretty Good." They even manage to make the sitar-powered pysch of the title track work. There are a handful of archival hidden bonus tracks. An early version of "Claudette Jones" from 1966 demonstrates the honesty of its garage roots. Another pair of tracks is also present in early versions, dating from 1967 and the early 80s.

The genuine article. Sixties music at its utmost best.
Remember when music on the radio was so addictive you couldn't turn it off? Remember singing along all day on the weekends? Remember turning it up in the car? This album lands you squarely in the golden days of real pop-rock music and doesn't let up. I love this brilliant record, its sixties-essence sound, and all the songs on it, especially Claudette Jones.

If you like Bobby Vee, Gene Pitney, and Buddy Holly.....
If you like Bobby Vee, Gene Pitney, and Buddy Holly, you'll love the TIME WILL COME cd by the Austrailian duo, the Secrets! Though the Secrets are not clones of the aforementioned singers, their musical influence can be heard in the songs on the cd. The songs are mostly up-tempo rockers, and are very pleasing to the ear. One great thing about this cd is that
ALL of the songs are good--there isn't a dud among them. Certainly this gives the purchasers of the cd a good deal for their money.

My personal favorite is "Catch Me", which has well-crafted lyrics, and wonderful vocals. "Claudette Jones" is the hardest rocking of the songs, with great and very catchy guitar and keyboard work. The drumming throughout all the songs is extremely enthusiastic and well-placed within each song.

The title track is a different type of song than the others on the cd and is interesting to hear.

If you get this cd, I predict that you will find yourself playing it a lot, and that you will be more than happy with your purchase!! I hope that this band will have a lot of success with their fine sound.

You'll be Glad to find out the Secret!
I think “Time has Come” applies for the times we are living in. The Secrets music on this CD, which I am privileged to have a copy of and enjoy it greatly! Is very upbeat and spans all generations of music. It’s a great reminisce of a wonderful past decade.

“Talk about the Boy” reminds you about how it used to be when a boy and girl liked each other. The other song’s in this collection of music highlights the talent of song writing, singing and playing, that the secrets as a band possess, even though there is only two of them.


What a great piece of music to add to your collection, you’ll be glad that you found out this Secret!

Ultimate collector's item! Lead by Peter Rechter, unsung pop super-hero.
Time Will Come [Secret Deal]

This is an ultimate collector's item!

As it's appropriately shown on the cover, The Secrets carry us through the secrets of down-under time-travelling, along the contemporary sounding vintage tunes and vintage sounding contemporary tunes as well as some out of time classics.

Lead by Peter Rechter, an unsung pop super-hero, they started life on the new waves of the eighties' skinny tied power pop, released an EP and disappeared into obscurity. Now Peter is back with an overview of his entire career re-visiting some of his '60s/'80s memories and a couple brand new ear candies.

In my personal opinion, the original sixteez versions of the Peter & The Silhouettes' “easybeat” of Claudette Jones and The Tol-Puddle Martyrs' popsyke Time Will Come are simply unbeatable, but what makes this album more than worthwhile are Rechter's nuggets like I'm Not Cryin' or Think About The Boy that can be “squeezed into any of the '80s pop LP masterpieces or the Lowe-ish interpretation of the Mercey-wet country of All The Way.

It was about time these secrets to be unveiled!

'A world class craftsman of pop songs'.
“Rechter's talent as a writer of commercial pop songs is comparable to many of the British songwriters like Graham Gouldman, Roger Cook, Roger Greenaway, Alan Blakely, Chip Hawkes & Geoff Stephens who penned countless hits in the 60's for dozens of UK acts. Peter Rechter has waited half a lifetime to register his claim as a world class craftsman of pop songs. Hopefully his 'Time Will Come' may prove to be prophetic”.

60s beat, power pop and all stations in between
If you came for nostalgia, you'll stay for the music.

This CD is hard to pigeon-hole, but it's the product of a fine pop sensibility that's been honed over several decades. It's catchy, joyous pop, imaginatively arranged and passionately performed.

It has its roots in 60s beat music, as evidenced by the still rousing "Claudette Jones" and the stunning reworking of "Time Will Tell", both of which were first recorded by Peter Rechter in the 60s. But this is hardly a 60s revival band. Bands like The Motors from the 70s, or Fountains of Wayne from the 90s spring to mind, but there is much to enjoy here which defies any specific comparison.

Oh, and if you stayed for the music, stay a bit longer because the nostalgia is here too. In a novel twist to the "hidden track" idea, the final track continues in silence for several minutes before continuing with the tracks that started it all, by Bendigo's Peter and the Silhoettes and (as they were later known) the Tol-Puddle Martyrs.

For this baby-boomer at least, it's impossible to choose between the slightly Yardbirds-like original of "Time Will Tell" by the Tol-puddle Martyrs, which is a pure child of its time (1967), and its successor, the powerful rearrangement by the Secrets.

Stand-out tracks for me, apart from the two "oldies", are the peppy "Feel Pretty Good", and "Catch Me" which has a great vocal reminiscent of teen idoldom. Come to think of it, those two titles just about sum it up: this is feelgood, catchy music.
