Long Island garage rock n roll super group The Repercussions have just released their debut LP, "Modern Sounds". It is the follow up to 2004's "Don't Fear" EP. Both are available through Kings Park, NY-based indie label ESCHE Records.
"Yes, folks, meet The Repercussions and their Modern Sounds, for they truly are the future of rock n roll." So says music journalist Chuck Foster in the liner notes of "Modern Sounds". It offers up 14 tracks of sonic splendor, ranging from the Johnny Thunders-esque opener "Everything is Gonna be Alright", to the Booker T inspired "It's in the Bag", to the Joe Strummer-style country-folk on "Bridges Aren't the Only Things that are Burnt."
The band recorded the basic instrumental tracks for 16 songs, 14 of which appear on the LP, in one weekend in November of 2004: 16 songs over the span of 20 hours. The next few weeks were spent on overdubs, vocals, and backing vocals and the album was fully recorded by early December 2004.
The album was produced and recorded by "General" George Fullan at General Studios on Long Island, NY. George is in the Long Island-based band Three Years Older and works as a professional recording engineer. His past work has included Cheap Trick, Keith Richards, and Levon Helm.
The final audio was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music in Tenafly, New Jersey. His studio's past credits include Pete Townsend, The Misfits, and The Buzzcocks.
Artwork was done by an old friend of the band, Angelo Blanda. Angelo works as a professional graphics designer and his past work has included album and promotional artwork for Long Island bands The Microwave Orphans, 48 in the Basement, and Freaks from the Apocalypse.
Shun the Top 40 and believe the hype: The future of rock n roll is right here and right now with The Repercussions.
