ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
John Walter is one of northern California's best kept songwriting secrets. He first hit the west coast in the mid 90's via Illinois acoustic jazz pop trio Yah-Yah Littleman. The band quickly established themselves as one of San Francisco's finest live acts by showing just how much energy and noise an acoustic guitar, a tiny drum kit and a stand up bass (expertly played by Walter) could deliver. After several tours and sharing stages with the likes of Frente!, Train, Green Day and Cake, the band went its separate ways and Walter soon found himself with a curious day job, fronting 80's coverband Tainted Love. The act is one of the most popular coverbands in California, having played to millions of fans and even opening for Berlin, the Pretenders, Macy Grey, Pat Benatar and the B-52's.

But you can't take the song out of the songwriter, so while Walter paid bills with a Devo outfit, he continued penning and performing instantly classic, catchy songs on the side as Walty. The wackiness and mayhem of Walter's onstage antics is channeled into something more downbeat, modern and rich yet still clever and melodically unforgettable. In 2004, KFOG chose Walty's tune "California" from his first CD "Haight Street Bus Ride" (2002) for their Local Scene CD and the San Francisco radio station continues to spin the tune. With John Bartkowiak (mysterious Oakland artist) co-writing the songs and some of the Bay Area's finest musicians (Paul Revelli on Drums, Billy Shen on Guitar and Jon Merker on Keys) filling out the mix, Walty is not nearly a solo project. Recently, Walty has hung up his mullet wig, pulled out the fuzz pedals & Stratocaster guitars and has released his sophomore CD, "Let It Out"(2006). Tell your friends.

Love Motorcycle Ride and Coverband
I saw Walty play at the Red Devil and bought their cd. It's filled with great catchy songs. There are one or two slow tunes but most of the cd rocks/pops! I really love Motorcycle Ride and Coverband - they both should be on the radio if there was any justice.

Solid All The Way Through
This cd is solid all the way through. It's filled with nice catchy pop nuggets like Motorcycle Ride and Summertime, and rock fistpumping singalongs like Four Years and 21st Century Girl. There's great playing throughout. I believe I like it even better than Walty's first cd Haight Street Busride... and that's saying a lot.

Turn-on from a Friend
A friend turned me on to this cd the other week and I've been playing it over and over in my car. There's definitely a lot of musical history here but it still comes across as sounding real fresh. My highlights - Motorcycle Ride, Most Unusual and Two Lovers. ROCK ON!

This is a great collection of straight ahead rock songs
This is a great collection of straight ahead rock songs with lyrics that actually have something to say. There's no fillers or throwaways - it's solid all the way through with a nice little pop payoff at the end - Summertime.

Sounds like a Midwestern Morrissey after successful therapy
I can't believe these songs aren't on the radio - they're addictive little bastards - very clever and well crafted. Check out 2 Lovers and Motorcycle Ride!
