Jaymz Dare, Joey Harris, and Revenge Club

Artist: Jaymz Dare
Song: “Rock Paper Scissors” (from his self-titled CD)
Heard by: Aaron Rubin, San Diego
It was awful. It wanted it to sound like Soft Cell, but it didn’t achieve it. This is a great example of why people shouldn’t get an Mbox or Pro Tools and make a CD. There’s zero quality control. There was no point in writing that song; the better version has already been written. The guy that wrote that song can’t possibly think it’s great. When I hear that song, I picture someone sitting in his bedroom really scratching the bottom of the creativity barrel. There’s no E for effort even. I’d give it a 1 out of 10. Hang it up. Don’t quit your day job.

Artist: Joey Harris & the Mentals
Song: “She’s on the Pill” (from their self-titled CD)
Heard by: Salomon Maya, Chula Vista
Lyrically, it was not my thing. It kept repeating, “She’s on the pill.” Musically, it was not that bad. It had a little bit of the Doors in there. The bass riff and the guitar riff were great. I think the song was about birth control, but, obviously, it’s about something more, too. I think it could have some radio airplay. I just saw The Hangover, and I could see that song in a buddy comedy where they’re driving to Las Vegas. It’s catchy and as a Top 40 listener, I’d give it a 6.5 out of 10. I wouldn’t change the channel if it was playing on the radio.

Artist: Revenge Club
Song: “Dead Girls” (from the CD The Reds of Their Eyes)
Heard by: David, Mission Hills
I liked the beginning and end more than the middle. For some reason, in the middle it got a little boring, but then at the end it picked up. I would compare them to Metric. It doesn’t sound like a lot of underground punk; it sounds a little bit more mainstream. Not many punk bands have female singers. She sang a little off-key at times. The tone of the song was kind of dark and morbid...although I did like the drums. That’s a good enough song to go on the radio. Moshing would be an obvious activity for that song.

Revenge Club is so great live. I got them for the second time, opening for the Lovemakers and the Muffs at the Casbah Saturday. As always, they were amazing.

Even though most of the crowd wasn't there yet, they rocked. And the ones that were there earlier, were glad they were.
