Heard For The First Time - Reviews by Art Scotch

Dino Petaccio & The Intruders / Old Currents / Tony Saxon / Skinny Lister


Dino Petaccio & The Intruders - "Panama St. High" (from "Memories You Left In This Town")

Did this band start as an E Street Band cover band? Lazlo didn't say, and I don't care enough to look it up.

Whatever their beginnings may have been, they sound like a band HEAVILY influenced by early 70's Asbury Park scene (Bruce & E Street band, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes)


Old Currents - "Pressure & Time" (from "Three Chords & The Truth")

Punk rock attitude, matched with some sped up trappings of folk rock & honky tonk. It's catchy. It's got a beat, I can pogo to it.


Tony Saxon - "Want Me" (from "Old Souls & Long Term Goals")

This is what I imagine happens if you listen to the Nuggets box set every day. Classic psychedelic, bluesy, garage rock. More please!


Skinny Lister - "Thing Like That" (from "The Devil, The Heart & The Fight (Deluxe)")

I understand this song is about recent events (Brexit, Trump), but damn, this sounds like a lost Elvis Costello & The Attractions song.
