Limited Edition Exclusive White Vinyl!!
Blazing guitars and a flash of white light, that’s what yer gonna get and
a whole lot more when your needle hits the record on Watts’ latest release.
“They may have nicked their moniker from the surname of reclusive Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, but this Boston foursome is a lot
less gentlemanly, and a lot more loud. The band members do have one thing in common with their namesake, though: They too play in a band
built on a bedrock of riff-powered songs that have as much to do with swagger as they do melody.
Watts also stoke the twin-engine guitar charge of Keith Richards and Ron Wood, although gruff-voiced singer-guitarist Dan Kopko sings better
than both, and lead axe John Blout’s tough, blistering solos are closer in spirit to the knotty workouts of AC/DC’s Angus Young. Add to the
stew a sweetening sprinkle of Cheap Trick’s rock candy, a helping of KISS’s cartoon glam, and a sturdy rhythm section to stir the pot (drummer
Johnny Lynch and bassist Tim McCoy), and you’ve got a failsafe recipe for a single that sounds like a night on the town.”
