TOP SHELF ENTERTAINMENT
To label something as Pop Music doesn´t necessary have to come along with ranting and raving as there really have been times when this label was connected to haunting melodies and ear candy presents which is just about the point where THE CRY! from Portland are entering the ring carrying forward the great tradition of the alltime favourite and unforgotten EXPLODING HEARTS.
THE CRY! as well as their "forefathers" master their Powerpop perfectly and infuse it with everything that was great about Pop Music from the Fifties to the early Eighties.
They got some awesome Doo-Wop crooning qualities that will even make the most shy lady taking off her bra on instance, they got the Sixties Beat guitars taking a hipswingin´ detour via the legendary dance floor of the Wigan Casino and to top it all off they got the smartly dressed Punkrocker as well telling the story of his first time after having had one beer too much while the background jukebox is blaring out promises of a night full of teenage kicks to happen.
It´s unbelievable to me that so far no one has offered to secure these pearls on vinyl, the one and only true medium for the timeless music this is.
