ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 2014 ALBUM RELEASE TITLED "HARD SOUL" IS ALSO AVAILABLE ON CDBABY!
VISIT www.tonybellantoni.com FOR MORE INFO ON THE BAND!

ALSO AVAILABLE ON CDBABY...The 2010 ALBUM RELEASE FROM TONY BELLANTONI & THE SWAG HOOKS,
"TALK US OFF THE LEDGE"

"Tony Bellantoni, like Jack White of the White Stripes/Raconteurs, excels in his 'guitarist as producer' role. Nice to know someone can still 'do it' like Jimmy Page used to. Looking for goose bumps? play 'dirty greasy bluesy mess' loud!"
Magnet Music Magazine


"Snarl, Meat, Vibe...it's all The Swag Hooks!!!"
Fender Musical Instruments

"The Swag Hooks, a most blues worthy quintet from the New York/Connecticuit area mix influences such as The Black Crowes, Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, Grand Funk and down and dirty Delta blues to come up with a satisfying release that's sure to satisfy not only fans of blues rock but of organic 70's styled hard rock as well. This band certainly knows how to 'groove' convincingly!!"
Rocknrolluniverse.com (Oct'05)

"8 out of 10 stars...this heavyweight blues-rock is far from being a mess!"
Classic Rock Magazine (May '05)

"a quasi retro-rock vibe brought into the here & now...
'dirty greasy bluesy mess' is a world class release,
The Swag Hooks are the real deal!"
Matt Zako MD WFOX-FM

"Bellantoni's songwriting and production craft are what make this worth the price of admission."
L.A. Weekly Arts & Entertainment (June '05)

The Swag Hooks sophomore outing brings the spirit
of early 70's rock clearly into the present. "Groove" is the operative word with this blues/rock influenced
group based in the NY/Connecticut area. With an emphasis on the riff, the songs are both infectious and moving. Give and take guitars tug on the beat, while soulful vocals tell it like it is. From the greasy funk of "Do You Think" to the swampy grit of "Tipitina" , this album is a winner...
A must have for any die hard rock enthusiast!

A LOOK BACK...
The Swag Hooks started out in the late 90's with a mission to get back to their roots. Disciples of classic blues, rock and soul, The Swags were influenced by artists like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones, Elmore James, Sly Stone, James Brown & Stevie Wonder. They harnessed their energies, entered the studio and recorded this album...the result is nothing less than spectacular.

The Swag Hooks have played extensively along side acts such as The J.Geils Band, Black 47, Government Mule and
The Allman Brother's Otiel Burbridge.

Kick ass band
this cd kicks major ass, although whoever mixed it sucks! all the guitar "solos" sounds like its just backround music--give your guitarist some credit!! he can play really well, in fact Greg Kurtzman, a guitarist from the swag hooks and formerly of the rage of angels, played in a band named 92/90 (ninety-two ninety)for my graduation party in july--they kicked ass then too! i definitely wouldnt mind seeing the swag hooks play at the Oyster Festival again! Overall, i must say the music on this CD is great!

Awesome
Do you remember when you heard your favorite band for the first time and you thought you discovered something new and fresh? That's how i felt with these guys. I wish there were more real bands but radio and rap seems to be sucking america dry of rock and roll.

I saw them once and was blown away. Catch em live if you can but if your into true rock and roll you must pick this up. I'm sure they are going to burst out sooner or later but in the meantime we'll have to be satisfied with this
tasty set.

Keep it up, boys.

ah the sound of the 70's
I remember when we could not wait to get to the record store to get the next zeppelin or grand funk album. This reminds me of how fun it is to sit and listen to great rock music. The only problem with this cd is it is over to soon. Great album great band.
