Bang Bang Bang went Frankie’s Gun
I’ve come a little late to the whole Felice Brothers thing, and, if the standard line is correct, I’m only getting half the story because I haven’t seen them live, but one thing’s for sure, and that’s that these guys are something special. I picked up their self-titled debut album last Monday, and after playing it almost non-stop ever since, I still can’t stop listening to it. They might wear their influences on their sleeves (and lead singer Ian Felice sounds almost eerily like Bob Dylan) but there’s nothing derivative about their crazy, joyous, rackety energy, or the sense of history lurking in the songs. Their myspace page makes a crack about their music sounding like a barn smells, and they’re right – it’s fantastic stuff.
