ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This CD was a nice surprise. Really well written indie rock songs with interesting parts and good lyrics. 'Sometimes' has a driving beat while 'State of Being' had some cool guitar solos with vocals that brought to mind D. Boon. There is something worth hearing in all the songs on this disc which isn't bad these days."

"Costello, Ramones, Devo, Devon, Talking Heads, Smithereens, Marine Corps Chants, it's all in there, and then some!! I hate to name other bands as examples of style when in fact, the above may not even be near influences of Visitor 42, but hey, it's what I'm hearing!

Cuts like the grinding "Sometimes" or the slow moods of "State of being" take you from one end of a punks spectrum to another rock point of view and sum up the CD, However "Drummers Day" (Live) has got to be the KING of this album. It has a way of gnawing on your musical funny bone. The first time I heard it I had to shut it off...But after another exposure the sickness began to sink in. I now have listened to it about 12 times and it just keeps getting better!! The drums are recklessly savage.The guitars driving, and the vocals.... seem to be a type of Controlled Kaos. The type rarely experienced unless you ever seen a motorcyclist weaving back and forth across 880 with a yellow jacket trapped in his helmet!

Conclusion: Although in spots the CD lacked in sonic quality (the studio), the band shines and the message is well delivered. Sonic quality...Punk.... Is that an Oxymoron? Go check these guys out in a club near ya, they got somethin' to say!" - Bayscene Online Magazine

"So I walk into this hotel, and I am greeted by a cherubic young lad. 'Thank you for choosing the Hotel V42,' he chimes, 'We hope you enjoy your stay. Would you be as so kind as to sign our guest registry?' He hands me the book, bound in expensive leather, but soild with greasy fingerprints and potato chip crumbs. Cautiously, I open it up, find records of previous guests such as: Hank Rollins * Greg Ginn * Bill Stevenson * Dale Nixon * Christian Slater * Kira * Henry Rollins * Robo * Dez Cadenza * The Phoenix Family * Charles Dukowski * Charles Bukowski * Chavo Pederast * H. Rollins.

Realizing that I'm not hearty enough to endure this place's heavy-handed hospitality, I put the book down and leave, but not without a handful of mints and the Hotel's card. That way, when the cherubic young bellboys attain enough status to sign their own names in the registry, I'll have proof enough to claim 'I was there when...'"
