Black Light Revival

by Vincent Priceless

Taking inspiration from a broad palette of Rock & Roll, BLR unites Punk, Prog, Power-Pop, and P-P-P-Psychedelic, discreetly laces it with Mellotron, and serves it all up with plenty of attitude, humor, and clever lyrics too! Like nothing else!

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PRICELESS INFO

Where Punk, Prog, Power-Pop, and P-P-P-Psychedelic music meet (if, in fact, such a place exists at all), you will find me, Vincent Priceless, a NYC-Metro area songwriter, bass guitarist, Mellotron nut, and all-around Rock & Roll transgressor extraordinaire! When not lurking in the wings of a Damned or Stranglers gig, I have been involved in countless money-losing musical endeavors for the past 35 years - most notably The Mean Clowns, having appeared on the Uncle Floyd Show several centuries ago (let’s put it this way: no one owned a VCR back then, now VCRs are all but extinct – YOU do the math!), performing our Three Stooges tribute, “Hello Curly Joe” (yes, we made the fatal mistake of releasing an homage to the wrong set of “Stooges”). Other obscurities include the totally wired & insane Bagpipe Gunman with NYC session drummer and producer Tom Curiano (now drumming with Garland Jeffreys) and former Rattlers/Sucker’s Luck bassist and local Glen Cove guitar hero Art Quinn; and Rocketfinger, with Corpse Grinders/Brats guitar maniac Pat Jerry, and former Electric Frankenstein skins man Rob Sefcik, who now pounds it out with Stoner/Sludge monsters Kings Destroy. I have also had the pleasure of cataloging my bass-playing faux pas with long-time comrade John Ford, of Strawbs pedigree.

CHILLER THEATRE FILM, MODEL & TOY EXPO & THE DEAD ELVI

As part of an on-going stint with Chiller Theatre Film, Model and Toy Expo darlings The Dead Elvi, featuring co-founders Kevin "Thumbs" Clement and Chris "Criswell" Palmerini, I fulfilled a life-long dream by playing several promo gigs with one of my musical heroes, Michael Bruce, of the original Alice Cooper Group! Also kicking-out the jams with MB & me were Platinum God & world’s tallest drummer Neal Smith, and the bass player's bass player himself, Mr. Dennis Dunaway, both of original Cooper group infamy! As part of the Chiller Theatre house band, I have also had the privilege of sharing the stage with the likes of such musical luminaries as Keith Emerson, the late-great Davy Jones, Mark Lindsay, Cheetah Chrome, Bebe Buell, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Cherrie Currie, Bruce Kulick, Kane Roberts, Liberty DeVito, Monster Mash creator Bobby “Boris” Pickett and "The Cool Ghoul", John Zacherle, to name but a select few!

ENTER: BLACK LIGHT REVIVAL!

July 2014 finds my latest serving of sonic chaos - the Mellotron-saturated “Black Light Revival” - finally being unleashed to the unsuspecting ears of those few who couldn't get out of range in time! Limited to one hundred pieces, and released on my own home-grown Baby Werewolf label, BLR features original Rock and Roll that’s stylistically all over the place and no place at all! Think of it as psychedelic psentiments and tongue-in-cheek power-pop melodies served-up in a progressive punk malady…How’s THAT for a convoluted load of BS? I like to call it "Silver Age Rock & Roll", as it is not only firmly rooted in a more adventurous time in the evolution of Rock & Roll (let's say, '66 to '73), but is also written, recorded, (mostly) played and produced by me - the aging old curmudgeon himself! Long-time creative cohorts Tom Curiano and Art Quinn are on board to lend their invaluable talents to the proceedings as well. BLR also features (2) cool cover tunes: the Ervin Drake-penned Sinatra standard "It Was A Very Good Year", done up in a kind of Spiders From Mars vs. Jefferson Airplane groove, and "All The Colours of The Rainbow", by former Stranglers front-man and all-around punk legend, Hugh Cornwell!

I continue to write, record and produce new material on an on-going basis. Currently, I can be seen and heard holding down the low end with my ghoulish pals, the aforementioned Dead Elvi @ the next Chiller Theatre Film, Model and Toy Expo!

Thanks for your indulgence!

Black Light Revival will revive your faith is Great Music being made today!
Want to take a trip down memory lane with twelve tunes that sound like you heard 'em on the radio but didn't? Then buy this CD! Vincent Priceless takes a great, tuneful journey through a lot of styles stopping along the way for some melodious Psychedelia, Big Star-like Power Pop, dead in your face 70s Pop Metal, and big wollops of Prog Rock. There's some Post Punk New Wave stuff going on here too. I believe if you like any of the kinds of music I mentioned above... you'll really like the standout cuts "Psychedelic Sunshine Pop Crusader" (In an alternate universe this would be all over the radio!), "Is it My Wheels?", and a really groovy take-off on the kind of stuff The Beatles and The Stones were doing with their psych records with "All the Colors of the Rainbow". This is a really fun listen...and oh yes, it contains lots of Mellotron on the record...and you know what that means...Intense groovy sounds. I like it a lot...and believe you will too.
