Our most awesome friends Film Punk just posted this about the new record.
The record is a brash, bluesy, lo-fi rock jolt that’s loaded with hooks and seething guitar. To pick but three of my favourite songs, “Hair Rocket” sounds like Wire playing The Feelies, “Ok Alright” is a paranoid barnburner with an unforgettable wordless chorus, “Imagining” is sweet but persistent. It has the intensity and immediacy of other Philadelphia bands like Laguardia or Pepper’s Ghost, but Blasucci has a confident enough voice that he’ll outlast them and make a lasting impression. His debut record has a sound simultaneously solid and loose and I’ve been listening almost non-stop since I got it.READ THE FULL STORY HERE
Here’s an interview The Deli music magazine called “Where is my mind” It’s been a bazaar journey watching Hair Rocket evolve from a song to a warped artistic movement to a band. But it has certainly been an enjoyable one. Multi-instrumentalist, pyrotechnician and mastermind Chris Blassucci surprised listeners and the local media with his impressive debut EP Novelty, and now he’s back with his new Kickstarter-funded LP Punishment Cookie which is full of tasty morsels of power pop goodness. You can watch Hair Rocket leave it all on stage tomorrow night at Bookspace, but hopefully they won’t burn the whole place down. We had a chance to catch up with the always unpredictable Blasucci to find out what the hell is a punishment cookie, why he dropped out of Berklee, what is like going to the bathroom in your pants, and much more(read interview here) Check out some reviews of the record here and COME SEE OUR SHOW TONIGHT IN PHILLY
