The Strypes are Great Mockers

It was always a battle between if you were a MOD or a ROCKER. Keith Moon’s answer was, “I’m a Mocker.”  Perfect answer for the young person who wants to rock and look good doing it.  Just as a side note Keith Moon was the greatest drummer to ever live.

This is why God created the mail.

The Strypes - Snapshot

I have had this CD now for a month because when you pray to the Gods of Rock and give them your credit card they release incredible music weeks and sometimes months before they are released here. It’s called imports and we should say Amen.  With that prayer you are now able to purchase this CD in USA.

There is going to be a lot said about the age of these Irish lads.  They are all under 18.  Jeff Beck is a fan, he’s a pretty big deal when it comes to the guitar and picking at it.

The album sounds at first like it is all cover songs because they are done so well to capture The Stones in 1962 or the aforementioned The Who around the same time.   They love the blues and they are not a boy band.  This is classic rock performed by young men as new music to them.  Their new discoveries may be Willie Dixon or the Yardbirds.  And this new music they have heard for the first time burns in their veins with passion and that exuberance is delivered and contagious throughout their Snapshot release.  Many of the greats started out banging the blues and it will be exciting to watch where these guys take it from here.

Blue Collar Jane by The Strypes

The Strypes have brought their rhythm and blues to the United States so it has come full circle with a whole new generation.  Tell your grammy to get all gussied up and take her to The Strypes show so she can remember back to the rockin’ days of her youth and make sure you catch them while your still young enough to shake a leg.

About Spool Going Round

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
