Palooka SHES SPEED Vinyl Record

Palooka SHES SPEED Vinyl Record
Palooka is big thick two guitar rock the way God intended it. Singer Paul Passarelli belts out melody lines full of emotion and purpose with tenacity. Chris Quinn and Glen Logan trade flurries of devastating and searing guitar punches reminiscent of a barroom brawl. All of which sits on the rock solid pounding foundation built on the talents of Howard Binner on bass and the percussive mauler Jason Reavis on drums. Palooka clearly borrows from their past contributions to bands like Overlord, Bible Stud, SGM, Debutant, Razrez, Lipstick, October and Kingmother. Palooka brings those and other influences together to offer a complete and contemporary take on Hard Rock/Alternative music full of honest emotion and grit. Paul Passarelli also sings in 70 Proof. And for the last decade he has sung for the Flight to Mars annual Crohn's benefit shows. What's Wrong With Wanting Everything is not only the title of Palooka's CD and the accompanying title track but it also seems to be their approach to putting together an album. The 11 songs on this CD cover a lot of ground which at times makes it hard to fathom how all these often divergent tunes sit so closely together, so comfortably. The good news for the listener is that they do. How you ask? It may be the fact that Palooka brings together musicians who have been haunting the Seattle scene from the pre grunge days (yes there was a pre grunge Seattle music scene) to present. Palooka is made up by former members of Overlord, Bible Stud, Ruester, Boss Martians, Razrez, Debutant, Born Naked, Lipstick, October and Kingmother. Combined with influences Palooka sites ranging from Elton John and Louis Armstrong to Bowie/Ronson, KISS, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Cult, The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, Motorhead, Judas Priest and many more the picture gets a bit clearer. Topped off by the obvious Evel Knievel hero worship that asserts itself from their younger days as demonstrated by the cover photo we start to get a glimpse of how they pull it off. What's Wrong With Wanting Everything goes from heavy and loudly extroverted at times to subdued, self critical and introspective. Not afraid of guitar solos, or quite acoustics the musical pallet here ranges from hard rock with metal tinged fury to something approaching alternative and at times even bluesy. Songs on this CD deal with subjects ranging from larger social commentary with songs like Ugly American, and Dime Store Jesus, to the loss of a close friend and brutal self examination on Sun Will Rise, and Golden Boy, to a gratuitous pursuit of life in the adrenaline fueled moment on the title track. Ambitious? Sure but it works. According to Palooka there is nothing wrong with wanting everything and their new CD proves that they just may be on to something. Palooka's, CD What's Wrong With Wanting Everything was released on June 28th 2011. The first run of the CD sold out within a little over a month. Songs from the CD What's Wrong With Wanting Everything have been featured on KISW, Seattle's premier rock radio station as well as many internet radio stations and podcasts worldwide. Palooka is currently writing and recording new material for an album with an anticipated release date early 2014. Palooka is: Howard Binner - Bass Glen Logan - Guitar Chris Quinn - Guitar Jason Reavis - Drums Paul Passarelli - Singer.
