"Old-fashioned in sound, the Queens group's
determined mediums -- singer Peter Zaremba, guitarist
Keith Streng and drummer Bill Milhizer -- have
never stopped channeling the spirit of every great
rock'n'roll party band that ever stepped to it"
"It's almost impossible to believe that a
band so fierce and ferocious -- live and on record
-- could reinvent itself, and hallowed rock traditions,
with such humor and talent, but Memphis' Reigning
Sound has and does." -Trouser Press
These three girls and the young gentlemen who
back them have got an ear for tradition and a
dead-on sense of the now. They've unlocked the
magic behind Stax/Atlantic/Tamla soul, Brill Building
pop, and the sweet syncopations of New Orleans'
Fabulous Soul Shakers
straight connection to an era now gone, the FSS
are fully animated by the same spirit that still
makes the best doo wop/r&b/soul recordings
sound ageless, essential, and realer than real.
This three-piece plays Southern, blues-infused
rock'n'roll a la early Flamin Groovies, while
the vocal harmonies show their love of the
Everly Brothers, Gene Clark and The Byrds.
The new sound of Americana roots music is evident
in the dark blues and country twang of NYC trio
Boss Tweed. Their soaring male/female harmonies
intertwine in both giddy rockabilly numbers and
sultry blues tunes, making for a live show busting
with raw, honest energy.
