Dr. PETE review by KEEP ON ROCKIN' busting, basDr. Pete’s band review of... MADSIDE!! DUH!!
Current mood: rockin
Madside - straight adrenaline
Current mood: cooky/wacky
Sounding like Alice in Chains on a three-day heroin bender Madside dishes out ball-s-thumping rock. Yes indeed, Madside is the winner of the Dr. Pete – Nor Cal Local Roots band review contest. Now let me immediately bow down to all the Madside fans that voted to make it happen. All of you truly appreciate what a great thing you have and obviously want to share these guys with the world – and well you should!
Immediately, I am struck by Madside's presence coming straight through their music, I can only imagine that their live show would be even more profound – even if you threw in the trappings of a Stones worthy stage. I only ask one question…why are you guys still in Redding? Nothing against the place – I actually had an alcohol involved incident in an airplane hangar there, resulting in the weirdest way anyone can join the Mile High Club.
Back to Madside and the important stuff…the minds and talent behind the music include: Mike on vocals and guitar, Brian on guitar, The Ratcow on Bass and Dave rounding things out on the drums. I am currently celebrating their entire musical catalog (attribute that line to Office Space for all you movie line geeks out there)! Honestly, every Madside song that I flip to is a total winner - from the vocals down to the structure and songwriting. Hopefully you too, become immediately engulfed with the same love affair and devotion exhibited by so many of their fans.
My favorite Madside tune so far has to be Enemy. But not only is it my favorite, the chorus seriously inspires me to break up with my imaginary girlfriend before she leaves me for a life as a VIVID feature girl…or some other brash emotional release. With the song Enemy, Madside gives listeners a straight adrenaline injection to the heart!
With all that said this goes to you the Madside fans that voted and turned me on to this band – thank you.
If you don't yet know Madside, look them up at www.myspace.com/madside or pick up a song or two off CD Baby or ITunes.
Peace, Dr. Pete
