Album Notes
Quirky, random and insane: just a few words to describe this semi-pop-punk band from Alameda, California. They've got a sound that is reminiscent of the New York Dolls having lunch with Mudhoney and the Velvet Underground. I have not heard a band this intense in awhile. All of the members share the vocals on this disc, and for the most part, that works well. The highlight of Heavy Handed Hospitality is a riveting cover of The Rolling Stones "Paint it Black" as well as the tracks "United Police States," "The Prey," and the opening song, "Man of Steel." The song "Cactus" reminds me so much of Mudhoney that it almost makes me smile. It's nice to know that there are a few bands here in the Bay Area that don't sound so mundane and similar.

This is a great CD of relatively unheard punk rock, but it also combines other influences (most notably classic rock, psychedelia, & grunge) into the mix, creating a unique and invigorating sound. Definitely recommended, especially the poppy punk anthem "Everything," the trippy, psychedlic "Cactus," and the sludgy guitar rock of "Red Room."

DVD Auctioneer

Visitor 42- This highly acclaimed band hailing from the East Bay has been compared to a cross between Black Flag and Hank Williams so one can imagine the musical versatility this band has. They have toured up and down the West coast playing with bands such as Poison Idea, The Donna's and The Dwarves. Their new CD "Heavy Handed Hospitality" is garnering the band rave reviews. Their song "Everything" on the "HEAR This" CD is dedicated to better world for us to all live in.
