The Noise – October
Weasel Shifter Records
10-song CD
Labeled on the bio/press page as modern rock for the discerning listener, I was skeptical. I threw the disc in as I merged onto Route 3 south, accelerating very quickly across three lanes to the fast lane. I didn’t cut anyone off, but I’m sure those back on the highway saw my cross-cut lane antics and thought, what an asshole. That’s why things suck. It’s all the fault of shitheads who drive like that. I was undeterred from these self-hating paranoid defeatist thoughts. This music stayed right with me and validated every moment. I liked that. I like the layout of the songs on this disc and I like the fact that the guys in the band say that one of their many strengths is that they all like each other. Isn’t that likable? I think we need to like more things in the world, even if there are assholes that drive across three lanes of a highway to get to where they’re going. (Mike Loce)

The Noise Board – Online Review
sadbastardgoespop - self titled

My first impression of this band was the cool design they have on the cover, simple yet effective in communicating that they want to be perceived as power pop perhaps....and it's repeated on the CD itself with even more vivid, as to the ROCK....! these guys do nice tight and compact power pop with a slight punk edge. I noticed they call it "indie rock" and "modern rock" in the press release. The closest I can compare them to is Husker Du mixed with Dire Straits, and I mean this in a very good way. They have their own unique take on thinigs but also fit in very well with the Boston/Rock/Garage scene soundwise.

Most of the songs on this album are about relationships, a little too heavy that way, but hey, they write what they know. I REALLY like how the CD is sequenced, each song stands alone but also adds to the flow...."Drinking Song" for instance is a slow punk blues tinged ballady with the best guitar solo on the album, it's about a guy drinking after a break up (and maybe about a guy drinking too much - they describe as 'sad bastard') followed by "shut" that is about the blame involved after a break up. And then the "black t shirt song" about fighting about blame after a break up. I guess. I'm on my third spin through this journey, it's short and compact, feels shorter than it is, which is GOOD sign in my book of a band that really jells around the songs.

They recommend a few songs for airplay, but not "Someone Who Care" which is my immediate favorite so far. "Best Regrets" isn't on that list either and is my favorite bit of writing on this album.

I added the track listings to gracenotes, and the artwork automatically loads if you have iTunes. (whatever that means in regards to automatic songlistings, hopefully that will work for y'all)

SadBastardGoesPop is Colin O'Day (main songwriter), Jimmy Rochelle, John Sullivan and Bernardo Aumond with Paul Lutts. recorded by the master Richard Marr at Galaxy Park.

I'd recommend - "someone who cares", "broken keys", "best regrets" (first three tracks) for radio, but really, ANY track here deserves airplay. (FrankD)

Thanks to everyone who came out to see us at church, it was awesome seeing you and we had a great time. You can see a couple videos from that night here on Buds You Tube Page. There you can also find the debut of our new song “No Coincidence” at The Beachcomber in June. That’s not really the song title but apparently neither Bud nor I can remember it. We also greatly appreciate Dweezil having us on WMFO earlier this month.

Hope to see you at the New Wave Cafe in New Bedford Friday August 28th.
