AM Taxi

We Don't Stand A Chance

(Lucky Boys Confusion)


Released on June 8, 2010

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

With a blend of old-school punk, world beat and modern pop influences, Chicago-based AM Taxi combines experience with exuberance on their Virgin Records debut, We Don’t Stand A Chance. The band was formed almost two years ago—with the encouragement of Sublime producer Miguel Happoldt—by longtime Windy City bandmates and pals, singer/ songwriter Adam Krier, drummer Chris Smith and bassist Jason Schultejann. The trio began writing and recording and produced their first EP, Runaway Songs. Shortly after, they were joined by brothers John and Luke Schmitt on guitar and keyboards. AM Taxi began establishing a rep as a dynamic live outfit with headlining performances at local clubs like the Metro and soon after recorded their second EP, The Good, The Bad and The Fed Up.

Entering an Austin studio with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead), AM Taxi proceeded to record a major-label debut that reflects the group’s diverse influences. From the Springsteen-by-way-of-The Hold Steady, “Fed Up,” and the heart-on-the-sleeve Replacements-like confessional, “The Mistake” to the Police-inspired world beat of “Dead Street” and the Clash-esque reggae pulse of “Charissa,” the group has one foot firmly planted in the classics and one right here, right now in the present.

Really good CD. The only thing I am dissapointed in with it is the lack of new songs that weren't on previous works by them. I have all but 3 of the songs on this CD, they did rerecord them and they have a noticable difference (very noticable difference). I can't tell if I like the rerecorded versions or old versions better, both are great. In my opinion the CD is still worth purchasing if you have their demos/ep's but then again I've been a fan since the start and had been listening to Lucky Boys Confusion (Adam's original band) since their inception. All in all I would give this CD a 4 and a half stars because of the previous songs being on older work. I really like the 3 new songs though, they are very good. Overall a great buy if you like alternative rock that isn't like everything else you've heard. They are unique in their own way and worth buying.
