Jeremy Porter and The Tucos - Detroit, Michigan


Jeremy Porter and the Tucos - Detroit, Michigan




Jeremy Porter and the Tucos Don't Worry, It's Not Contagious music review by Joe Tell.

Don't Worry, It's Not Contagious starts off with Walk Of Shame. Walk Of Shame has an Americana  feel and packs a punch with it's twangy rock and roll guitars. The piano track played by Jeremy Porter adds a unique sound to this straight ahead rock and roll song.
Huckleberry has a infectious, urgent rock energy that's hard to ignore. This song shows off the band's alternative rock side with elements of pop punk. Patrick O'Harris provides a sweet sounding bass track offset with some great guitar melodies. This song reminded me of Huckleberry Hound.  
Watch and listen to Huckleberry on Youtube, here's the link  https://youtu.be/4dIGIuuhz5k


The title track, Don't Worry.. kicks off with a cool sounding bass line and neat little bass line takes the song out. A strong vocal delivery tops off this powerful and punky track.  
A slammin' drum track provided by Gabriel Doman punctuates Avenues Are For Heroes, an uptempo song about the hard life of the streets. 
to be continued...




Jeremy Porter and The Tucos play a unique blend of classic American Powerpop and roots-rock and they are from Detroit, Michigan. They've been compared to The Replacements, Cheap Trick, Gram Parsons and X, and they're currently touring in support of their third album "Don't Worry, It's Not Contagious."  They are known for a tight live show that will get you rocking and dancing one minute and crying in your beer the next. Don't miss it!

"...one of America's best examples of pure talent and hard work." - Jersey Beat, November 2017

“…a great job combining roots rock and powerpop…highly recommended.”  - PowerPopAHolic, Oct 2015


“…as northern American blues as you can get before Canada. Whiskey-smooth, with the white hot licks of Ted Nugent, the veteran inspiration of Cheap Trick, and the experimentation of Hüsker Dü. They also have grooves, in all the right places.” – Dayton City Paper, Oct 2015

Roger Daltrey


ROGER DALTREY RELEASES AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU


THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM 

Featuring ‘As Long As I Have You’, ‘How Far’, 
‘Get On Out Of The Rain’ and ‘Where Is A Man To Go?’

LP/CD/DOWNLOAD/STREAM 
AVAILABLE NOW
https://rogerdaltrey.lnk.to/ALAIHY

Brand new album featuring Pete Townshend 
Produced by Dave Eringa

“Roger Daltrey aces set of soulful covers, originals.” -AP

[Of “As Long As I Have You”] “A rollicking, gospel-flecked burner emboldened by squealing horns, jaunty piano, and a vibrant backing choir.” – Consequence of Sound

“Needless to say…Daltrey’s talents are everlasting and in many avenues go unmatched.” -Cryptic Rock

[Of “As Long As I Have You”]  “It's a return to his roots mixed with the wisdom that can only come with age.” – Ultimate Classic Rock

NEW YORK, NY (June 1, 2018)- As Long As I Have You the critically acclaimed new album from legendary Who frontman Roger Daltrey is released today.

During his career spanning five decade Daltrey has sold over 100 million records including 9 US & 10 UK top ten albums and 14 UK top ten singles. He’s played over well over 2000 gigs in a career spanning over 50 years including venues such as Woodstock, Monterey Pop, Glastonbury (twice), Hyde Park (four times), The Isle Of Wight (three times), Desert Trip, Shea Stadium, The Superbowl half time show and Live Aid to name but a very few.

Roger has raised tens of millions of pounds for charity all over the world and was awarded a CBE for his work with The Teenage Cancer Trust and is in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, the UK Music Hall Of Fame and has lifetime achievement awards from The Brits and from The Grammys

‘As Long As I Have You’ was produced by Dave Eringa, best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and on Roger and Wilko Johnson’s album ‘Going Back Home’ and features Pete Townshend’s inimitable guitar on seven tracks as well as guest performances from Mick Talbot on keyboards (Dexys, The Style Council) and Sean Genockey on lead guitar who has worked with Suede, Shame and The Proclaimers).

Work on ‘As Long As I Have You’ was started shortly after the top 5 gold selling ‘Going Back Home’ was released and continued during breaks on The Who’s record breaking 50th anniversary tour ‘The Who Hits 50’.

The album is a mixture of self-penned tracks such as Certified Rose and the soulful ballad ‘Always Heading Home’ along with songs that have inspired Daltrey over the years including Nick Cave’s ‘Into My Arms’, ‘You Haven’t Done Nothing’ by Stevie Wonder, Stephen Stills’ ‘How Far’, ‘Where Is A Man To Go’ which is Daltrey’s variation on Dusty Springfield’s ‘Where is A Woman To Go.’ and the title track originally recorded by Garnet Mimms in 1964; the year that Daltrey, Townshend, Entwistle and Moon changed their name from The High Numbers and became The Who.

Roger Daltrey on ‘As Long As I Have You’ “This is a return to the very beginning, to the time before Pete [Townshend] started writing our songs, to a time when we were a teenage band playing soul music to small crowds in church halls. That's what we were, a soul band. For a long time, I've wanted to return to the simplicity of these songs, to show people my voice, a voice they won't have heard before. It felt like the right time. It's where I am, looking back to that time, looking across all those years but also being here, now, in the soulful moment”

The Molice will be playing Nietzche's on May 5th


The Molice are a modern Japanese band who draw inspiration from 70's punk's DIY spirit, 80's new wave, power pop and 90's unchained indies guitar rock. They have a similar vibe to CSS, and Fujiya & Miyagi, with Pixies-esque guitars and powerful 80's style vocals.

The Molice was formed in 2007 by the charismatic female singer/rhythm guitarist Rinko, high tension guitarist Yuzuru Takeda. After a year of polishing their material playing Tokyo's numerous rock venues, the band made their recorded debut in November 2008 with their album 'Doctor Ray'. In the wake of their debut album they also received their first offer to play abroad, and did a UK tour in late 2009.

Their sophomore effort 'Catalystrock' was released in March 2010 followed by their third release, 2012's 'Neugravity' .

In 2014 THE MOLICE returned with a new line up delivering another collection of Lo-Fi Sci-Fi Love with a new album called "Resonance Love" on Good Charamel Records as well as a CD only version released in 2015 including 2 exclusive remixes entitled Resonance Love + !

The MOLICE released their album "5" on  June 11th, 2016 worldwide. The first album the band recorded outside of Japan, The North American version of the album includes a bonus track, a cover of "Bring on the Night" by The Police.

In late 2016 THE MOLICE finished tracking an EP entitled "Signs" which was released digitally September 8, 2017 and visited the US for a string of dates across the Northeast promoting this new release. Signs will be released physically Worldwide December 1st. The band spent the Summer of 2017 recording a new album in the US for release in 2018.
