Album Notes
"A Gentlemens Guide to Sophisticated Savagery" is the first release from Los Angeles dandys Smash Fashion.It was released in 2006 after the band had been playing the LA club circiut for around 2 years.It was singer songwriter Roger Deerings return to rock and roll music after a 10 year hiatius.Smash fashion was and is a reaction to the lack of showmanship and fun missing in so much of todays "rock" acts.The release has gatherd a cult following the world over.Scene maker Rodney Binginheimer had "A Gentlemens Guide" in his top 10 for the year...many have called it a powerpop masterpiece...One thing for sure,Smash fashion have forged a a sound that is all their own...harder than most powerpop groups and more melodic than most of the harder sounding bands today.....Its a place that Smash fashion feel right at home in....

The Songs
And what a bunch of songs they are! Songs that arrive fully developed, some having a timeless “already a classic” feel. From balls out rockers to lush ballads, not many bands can cover as much ground, stylistically and emotionally as Smash Fashion. Punishing and Pugnacious on one moment, embracing Pop prettiness the next. Songs with surreal influenced lyrics, songs with Vaudeville flourishes and songs with go mental rave-ups. It’s all here! Then there’s the subject matter…Chasing rainbows, mile hight club, deviated septums, aging rock stars, sinful pigeons, waxing mustaches and ah yes…Bittersweet love songs. Influences can be heard (Beatles, Yardbirds, Sex Pistols, Cheap Trick, Faces, Big Star, Damned, Queen, Who, Bowie, Kinks, Brian Jones's Stones…, etc) yet unlike most of todays so-called Rock Acts, Smash Fashion are about inspiration instead of imitation. “Were not reinventing the wheel, were just putting new tires on it” states Roger

Rock On!

An artistic heartattack, like dancing without taking a breath!
Terrific variety of songs, something for everybody. Perfect for driving home, going on a date, or staring into the eyes of the future without giving up the past.
