Villains Always Blink: Interview with the Bosch: “I’ve been taken with this indie punk pop band from New York since back in the fall of 2005 when I stumbled upon them in WOXY’s unsigned bands feature. Two years later, they’ve made a slight change in their line-up (added a Canadian!), released a new EP (titled Hurry Up), and still have a killer saxophone sound. Guitarist and vocalist Matt Harrison of the Bosch kindly answered some questions for Villains Always Blink.”
“The Bosch are a NYC combo that rocks out in all the right ways. They describe their music as…”a New York City quartet who sounds something like what might happen “if Brian Wilson, Dick Dale, and Joey Ramone stayed up all night taking speed pills and Ritalin.” Heck, that works for me. Although Dick Dale would kick both skinny Joey’s and pansy Brian’s asses.”
I usually don’t read e-mails from publicists — sorry… I know it must take so long to cut and paste our names (usually incompletely or incorrectly) into the form messages you send out that often do not reflect any real understanding of what this blog does — but Tony’s pitch for The Bosch caught my eye. Now, I’m not usually one for crazy, mixed-up comparisons, and I almost got lost in the ones provided for The Bosch: Joey Ramone, Dick Dale and Brian Wilson, or maybe The White Stripes, The Violent Femmes and Phil Spector, or even The Clash, the Femmes, Spector, Bruce Springsteen and Man… Or Astroman. However, I like enough of these performers to download a few tracks, and I liked them enough to share them with you. This NYC quartet offers short, rich, intense songs that are better enjoyed on their own, without comparison. These are from their newest album, Hurry Up, while four more off Buy One, Get One, from 2005, are available on the band’s website.
