Nothing Says Rich Like Golf Clubs

by The Swedes

Sounds like the best set of 70's pop rock you've ever heard played in the 21st century. Strong melodies and massive choruses equally supported by guitar and lead analog synth.

Album Notes
The Swedes are Chris Edwards (keyboards), Phil Crain(bass), Phil Harbut (drums), Tony Dilella (guitar), and Jon Gray (guitar & vocals). We've been playing together for about two years and have been told that we sound like The Cars, Thin Lizzy, T-Rex, and Squeeze. We've been told that we sound like other bands, too, but we didn't like them so we didn't list them here.

Phil Crain is Oklahomanian. Chris, a native of Providence, RI, pitched his tent in L.A. for a few years before finally migrating back East, turning up in NYC. Phil Harbut is from Canadia, Vancouver-style, and just landed in the city toward the end of 2003. Tony is from the vast metropolis of Philadelphia. Jon moved to New York from Chapel Hill, NC about five years ago. Since then, it's been rock shows, writing songs, and mastering the art of the photo booth.

Big, fun rock songs? Check.

Beery, sweaty, spastic, fun live shows? Check.

Aaron Kupferberg

The style is best described as eclectic rock. The first track
"Julie Walker" has the 70s glam vibe that brings to mind Imperial Drag, and this is a great stunner of a track with Brian May-like guitars and matching keyboard riffs. "Making Up Words" is a bit quirkier with toy piano and heavy bass line leading the way to a Queen-like melodic composition. Sometimes the vocals of Jon Gray are closer to Mika than T-Rex, with a warbling falsetto and it works on best "Patriot" a song that does a perfect Robert Pollard meets Bowie glamfest.
