The Boy From The Crowd Releases Revelator

This Duo Makes Some Seriously Awesome Noise

Lets be frank and honest, distortion is noise.  The reason they are selling so many distortion pedals is because so many of us love that kind of noise.  Frankly, I like what one of the band’s members had to say very much:

“One of the things that makes rock ’n’ roll great is its little imperfections and riding on the edge of disaster, knowing full well that any second it could all just fall apart.” – Vinny Piana

In their bio they go on:

The Boy From The Crowd Cocktail: take a pinch of Delta blues, mix with some edgy surf rock, shake (don’t stir) with a hefty dose of punk attitude and some good old-fashioned rock n roll swagger. Infuse with tension, blend with menace and you’re starting to get a flavor of the rich and potent firewater served up by Boy From The Crowd.

When singer/songwriter/guitarist Vinny Piana met drummer Vegas Ivy at the crossroads of rock, noise and badass, there was no way things weren’t going to get ugly. Here were two brothers from another mother, separated at birth it seemed, so closely were their musical inclinations aligned. Determined to be guided by their primal instincts and play music with guts, spirit and uncompromising integrity, the pair embarked on a fearless mission to discover tough new ways to rock the blues.

One of the things that makes great music great is experimentation and pushing limits.   While I am not sure which this duo is doing more of, they are certainly doing things right.  Revelator is a great mix of driving noisy rock with blues and punk mixed in very well.  If this single, available at their website, is any indicator of things to come, we are in for a noisy treat.  It is certainly worth some anticipation because this duo can really, really crank it out.

While there may not be a great deal of material out there for these two yet, there is, in my opinion,  a great deal of potential and much to look forward to in the future
