Mercury and More

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

It’s been a while since we’ve rocked out here at home in New York City, so the next gig is going to be a big one. We’re playing The Mercury Lounge on Saturday, November 3 at 9:30 pm.

Buy Tickets in advance. Kill the Alarm expects to sell out the show, so please, get advance tickets! We want to see you at the show. You can purchase at Ticketmaster online or at the Mercury Lounge box office.

Last week, we stopped in for a chat at Rockland World Radio (the bestest internet radio station in Nyack, NY.) The archive is available in the Modern Metro Music show archives (click on “The Bosch” to stream.)

Tomorrow night, we’re out in the ‘burbs in Clifton, NJ at The Clash Bar.

Release Day

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Hurry Up is officially released today! What does that mean? You can buy it online here at the Boschcast store.Here’s a great review at ReadJunk:

Ever notice that garage bands rarely ever ROCK? Weird, right? Well, The Bosch ROCK. They hit all the right notes – their garagey swagger isn’t hipsterish – it’s a genuinely cool Lou Reed thing with even a little Joey Ramone in there. The music is great – an immensely likable mix of 60s garage, 50s r&b, and Strokesy rock. They’re also one of the only garage bands that incorporate keys and horns and have it sound awesome.

Read the rest of this very flattering review: Bosch, The “Hurry Up EP”We’re playing a couple of dates outside of the city, but still in the greater metro NYC area over the next couple of weeks, hitting Nyack, NY on Saturday Oct. 6 and The Clash Bar in Clifton, NJ on Friday October 12.

Ever notice that garage bands rarely ever ROCK? Weird, right?Well, The Bosch ROCK. They hit all the right notes – their garagey swagger isn’t hipsterish – it’s a genuinely cool Lou Reed thing with even a little Joey Ramone in there. The music is great – an immensely likable mix of 60s garage, 50s r&b, and Strokesy rock. They’re also one of the only garage bands that incorporate keys and horns and have it sound awesome. But most of all, these are good songs. Too much of my time is spent reviewing stuff that may sound good, may sound bad, but preciously little of it would I listen to again, let alone put on my iPod. Many bands can sound good, but so few can write good, memorable songs. The Bosch are right there. They are in full control and they confidently rock out tunes you want to go back and hear again. Recommended for Strokes fans who don’t want a Strokes clone.
RATING & SUMMARY:
Bottom Line: Upbeat, fun, rockin’, catchy… rarities in the garage world but The Bosch have em covered. Notable Tracks: This Town, Paperback, the ska-ish Counting and Back to Reality (they even do ska well?!)Overall Rating:  (4.5/5)
