"Feeding off the garage sound of The Hellacopters coupled with the grittiness of MC5 and the boogie of Fu Manchu, Bazooka Falcon create their own genre." -


I can’t decide if there’s something distinctly New York about Bazooka Falcon or they’re encompassing a wider berth that transcends locale.

Their eight-song, self-titled debut is, above all, garage rock, influenced by all of the usual suspects. What lends the four-piece distinction – or at least puts them in that “New York garage rock” category I referred to previously – is the bratty delivery of hipster disdain. That gives their high energy songs a sort of “Fuck you, I don’t need you” neediness. The slower “Steven Hairy” gives the sneering delivery a quasi-Velvet Underground vibe, making the band a more obnoxious sibling to Austin’s The Black Angels (minus the Vietnam War fixation).

For what they’re playing, Bazooka Falcon hits most if not all the right notes. It’s simple and direct, but not so much as to be primitive and dumbed down. Yet the singing made it difficult for me to find anything to latch onto. So let’s say this is for the garage rock enthusiasts, regardless of region. - John Pegoraro (

Bazooka Falcon is a rock 'n roll group from New York City. The music is loud and loose. Heavily influenced by Barry Manilow as well as other types of music; indie rock (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, etc. ), punk & post punk (the Damned, Wire, Minutemen, etc. ) metal (Motorhead, Pentagram, early Maiden, etc. ), garage & psych rock (Seeds, Them, 60's Stones, Syd's Floyd, etc. ), and pretty much anything else that's good (Prince, Cohen, Lucia Pamela, the Fiasco, etc. ). All feedback is greatly appreciated.
