The Voice Of Cheese: SOFA (II)

VOC #35 has our buddy SOFA chiming in once more. He says:

The band is called “Reckless” and it is the brainchild of my buddy Scott, and the drummer Jim. The idea is for this band to play American Country-Pop covers – because that’s what’s “hot’ around these parts (besides Karaoke, and synthesized-midi-driven dreck) and that’s what will get you hired – not that I’m Only in It for the Money, or anything…
When we were putting together a list of tunes, I suggested “Stealin” (sorry, I’m really just a dumb classic rocker at heart and I love Uriah Heep) because it was an old hit, it had ‘country’ lyrics, and it wasn’t Rascal Flats – who are great, don’t get me wrong, but enough is fucking enough…
This band’s “history” (we were ‘together’ for a little over a year) is too much like Spinal Tap to get into – our drummer never spontaneously combusted is the only difference.

I loves me some classic rock! Have a listen:

    Great tune. Reminds me a lot of the songs of Molly Hatchet (‘Flirtin With Disaster’ and ‘It’s All Over Now’), though I got the distinct impression that someone was about to start yodelling at any moment…

    What’s wrong with Huriah Heep? much better than Black Sabbath!

  3. xorg says:

    Being better than Black Sabbath is not saying much!

  4. Hank Peters says:

    I don’t care what you say, I still like Black Sabbath!

  5. SOFA - Philostopher/Chef says:

    I like Black Sabbath too… They formed a great deal of my “musical” background (heard their first LP in 4rth grade), “Oh no, no, please God help me”.
    I just gotta soft-spot for Uriah Heep (I was getting ‘action’ by the time they hit; that DOES make a difference)…
    Like FZ said: “If you like it, it’s great; if you don’t like it, it’s shit”.
    I’m just happy you listened – I really enjoyed that band. We didn’t have the best instrumental chops, but we could sing the shit outa just about anything…

    I love ‘The Wizard’ and ‘Easy Livin’ by the Heep. Saw a concert on British TV in the mid eighties by them when Pete Goalby was lead singer. It was awesome! Apparently it’s on DVD now. Any Bit KUR aficionados know where I can get a copy?

  7. Jamez (again) says:

    Sorry I meant ‘Brit’ aficionados not ‘Bit’, I was typing too fast!

  8. Duncan says:

    Like FZ said: “If you like it, it’s great; if you don’t like it, it’s shit”

    When did he say that?

  9. SOFA - Philostopher/Chef says:

    It was a “catch-phrase” of his that he used in more than one interview – I think the first time was when folks were wondering why he ‘left Rock’ to persue Big Band with the Wazoo project. It cropped up again a few times with his ‘Classical’ releases…
    I can’t recall which interview where I read the statement; I know I read it more than once. It might even be in TRFZB…
    (Hey Milhouse, if you’re reading, help me out; you’ve a better memory for this type of trivia than I.)
