The Marlowes - Nuclear Suitcase
Shiny Fly Records
Artist: The Marlowes (www.themarlowes.com)
Title: Nuclear Suitcase
Label: Shiny Fly Records
Genre: Pop Rock
Audio: Nuclear Suitcase (MP3)
Nuclear Suitcase is like being held captive on the
last beach party on earth. They are playing loudly,
with sped-up Beatles fun to usher in the apocalypse
that must be coming.
The Marlowes have had airplay in France, Brazil,
Japan, Australia and Spain. Played the International
Pop Overthrow Festival in LA. And have racked up an
impressive list of reviews so far. You wouldn't think
of bands like this coming from Rhode Island, would
you? Well, they do. Bill Jette (lead guitar, voice),
John Larson (lead voice, guitars), John DiGiulio
(drums), Keith Larson (bass, voice).
They've got some help on certain tracks in the guise
of keys and sax and that, but the songwriting is
really the star. Even John's voice (which can sound
like the strained softness of George Harrison when the
notes get high) can't compete, bring down or otherwise
outshine these 14 songs and 48 minutes.
It all begins with title track 'Nuclear Suitcase,' a
slow, rocky stomp into the field of battle. 'I've got
a nuclear suitcase / I'm trying to unload / I've got a
nuclear suitcase / that's ready to explode.' Like
'Norwegian Wood' or the like, The Marlowes sense of
hooky construction makes it so that in the first
minute, you know it. The rest is just guilty frosting
you lick up quick.
All songs are like that. Just depends on which speak
to you best. If you want me to pick out hits or the
so-called Best, that's impossible. I could do without
the vocal on 'Holding Pattern,' but I can't do without
the song and the rest of the tunes. So (Shrugs) - buy
it and hear for yourself. You're going to hear from
the Marlowes later anyway. Why not get a head start?
