Editors’ Notes

Ride The Blinds’ 2006 sophomore album picks up right where their 2004 eponymous debut left off — rocking out like the house band at a Hell’s Angels party in 1970. The San Francisco trio kickstarts Start Running with “Too True,” a stompy roots-rocker with a twangy Crazy Horse crunch pouring from singer Chris Guthridge’s vintage amp as brothers Bill and Nick Cramer hold down an airtight rhythm section. “Here We Go Again” is a slower smoldering number that builds on walls of Gibson hollow-body guitar distortion and powerful John Bonham-inspired drum-fills. The band downshifts on “Sometimes,” a smoky serenade with closely sung vocal harmonies and a twangy wah-wah effect on the guitar that sounds somewhat similar to Led Zeppelin’s “Tangerine.” Fusing heavy acid-rock with blues riffs, “Lies And Deceit” sounds like Guthridge locked himself in a woodshed for a week with nothing but Cream’s Wheels Of Fire to keep him occupied.

Raw Rock and Roll

In the words of Oliver Twist....MORE PLEASE....These guys only have two albums out and they need to make more. For those who like old fashion Rock and Roll this is it. Not pretentious or overdone with strong Blues influence. You can tell Ride the Blinds grew up listening to early Yardbirds, Zeppplin and Rolling Stones. I highly recommend this one!!!!!!!!
