Thrills & Chills is a brand new 12-song CD of all original rock 'n' roll containing Stonesy ass-kickers ("I'm So Bad", "By The Balls"), Rockpile/Dave Edmunds-style screamers ("What The Hell Did I Do", Hey Big Boy), Beatlesque/Beach Boys-influenced powerpop gems ("Crazy Little Fool", "Like An Angel"), fresh & cool riffs & hooks & harmonies throughout, plus surprises, including Special Guest vocals from the legendary Kim Shattuck (The Muffs/The Pandoras) the great Palmyra Delran, & the great Line Cecilie Dahlmann (The Dahlmanns).
This album is what Rockpile might have sounded like had they recruited Keith Richards & Paul McCartney & recorded a second album.
The players are Little Steven's Underground Garage favorites Kurt Baker (The Kurt Baker Band, The Leftovers), Brad Marino (The Connection), Geoff Palmer (The Connection, The Guts), Kris "Fingers" Rodgers (The Dirty Gems) & Rick Orcutt (The Guts).
The band has had two songs named "Coolest Song in the World" by Steven Van Zandt, & among their respective core bands have racked up 14 other Coolest Songs. Ain't no other band with those kind of numbers.
Is Thrills & Chills a contender for Best Album of the Year? Hell yes.
