A taster for their sadly overlooked CD on Seed. Dynamic,
overdriven rock in a Catherine Wheel / Dinosaur vein courtesy of Australia's Summershine
Fabulous super-charged pop from this Australian band.
Licensed from the prolific and estimable Summershine Records. Their debut (mini) album,
Teen Sensations was subsequently released in the US on Seed Records.
The Earthmen are from Australia and now have records
available on the Seed label. Cool Chick #59 is one of those amazing pop songs that's just
about perfect in evey way. This band treads the same ground as Velvet Crush does. They
write songs with pop hooks that stick in your head forever, but aren't afraid to show
their love for American rock music. I guess this description could apply to a lot of
bands, but very few can successfully combine influences like Badfinger and Crazy Horse and
sound distinctly fresh and original.
