50 Cent Haircut

If you're a Wilco/Kinks/Alt Country fan BUY THIS ALBUM!!! 50 Cent Haircut is an amazingly talented, sadly overlooked hidden LA treasure. Their songs teem with a fervent, old fashioned, gritty musicality infused with urbane skepticism. “Shadow of the Noose” begins with a bang with the jaunty deceptively upbeat melody of "Perforated" juxtaposed with lyrics deriding the prescription obsessed, quick fix, broken society we've become. "Vessel of Ash" is a whimsical ditty examining the lack of meaning in life and death- overflowing with quirky imagery and modern platitudes. "Good Idea (Morphine Drip)" is a beautiful ballad ruminating about mortality, the paradox of a “perfect” relationship, and the repercussions of a hard-lived life. 50 Cent Haircut is a power house of a band. It’s a shame they are not a house hold name- at least among true music lovers. I copied a clip from a review of their latest album “Be Happy” so you wouldn't have to just take my word for this band's brilliance. Here’s what Simon Braund of Empire Magazine (UK) had to say about 50 Cent Haircut: “With their latest release, a concise 10-track collection titled with, one hopes, a glimmer of irony, Be Happy, perennial L.A. combo 50 Cent Haircut distance themselves yet further from the Alt Country label that they’ve sported somewhat uncomfortably since they ventured onto the scene some eleven years and four albums ago. As labels go, Americana is even vaguer than Alt Country but at least it suggests a broader canvass, which is useful in this case. It also evokes plenty of evocative stuff like crackly valve radios, roadhouse crooners, bad whisky and worse women, all of which resonate fulsomely throughout Be Happy. It also retains the band’s notorious balance of crunch and twang - thunderous drums, rock solid bass and guitars that jangle and shred in harmonious accord. But it’s obvious that frontman and songwriter Jay Souza looks farther afield for his inspiration than Nashville - or, indeed, the United States. It’s not uncommon to read comments like “Johnny Cash meets The Beatles” in 50 Cent Haircut reviews, and they do have some currency. There is, in the sly lyrics and brisk song structures, echoes of classic Britpop that, to these ears at least, recalls The Kinks and The Who more readily than The Beatles. Be Happy is 50 Cent Haircut’s most ambitious and satisfying album by far, a culmination of fully matured songwriting, superb musicianship and a confident and unique blend of styles. And the only label you need for that is damn fine rock and roll.” If you live in the LA area, this is an amazing band to see live- repeatedly- because they never play the same set, or any one song the same way, twice. Regardless of whether or not you live in the LA area, you should buy “Shadow of the Noose” as an introduction to this band, and then all of their albums after you fall in love with this one.
