"Anything But Common"

Thursday, April 8, 2004 Dallas, TX

Common Signs is ANYTHING but common. A unique blend of talent, style and charisma might just see this band through to the big time. In fact, just last month, Common Signs was scheduled to perform with Thin Lizzy, but due to unknown reasons, Thin Lizzy cancelled. I can only imagine what kind of show that would have been.

The Curtain Club made a wise decision to allow this endurance driven band to play at their facility last night. The fans were enjoying themselves tremendously and as a direct result made several trips to the bar, therefore increasing revenue of liquor sales. It is apparent that the band is quite capable of bringing in the crowds, even if it is on a Wednesday night.

Trinity Bounds (lead guitar), Matthew Czechowicz (drums/percussion and formerly of the band Uncle Silas), and Ashley Glenn (bass guitar) recently persuaded Justin Talley to join the group to serve as their new lead frontman. Although he has only been a member for approximately five to six weeks, had you witnessed Common Signs performance last night you would have most likely thought Justin was a veteran; that’s how well Justin fits the lead vocal ticket. At times, it was a little difficult to recognize the lyrics Justin sang, but I’ll just contribute that to the low volume of the microphone.

Unexpectedly, Common Signs dedicated one of their songs to the memory of the beloved Matt Setzer of Frolic, whom recently died in a tragic automobile accident. Justin Talley made reference to how this horrible tragedy affected the local music scene and the camaraderie among fellow musicians he deemed “the bond of brothers.” A single moment of silence seemed to surround the room and then a hefty around of applause flooded the club. Mike, The Reverend Dann and myself on behalf of Renegade Radio want to deeply thank Common Signs for not only their tribute to Matt, but for their recognition of his talent and contributions to society and music. Matt Setzer will be missed.

If you can make Common Signs next local show on May 15th at Club Indigo in Dallas TX, you won’t be disappointed, in fact, you may even be impressed. The reason that the next local show won’t be until May 15th is because the band is so busy they have been booking interviews at radio stations and out of area shows as well. By the way, when you have an extra minute during your day, be sure to visit their website at to find out the latest information. And one last thing: have you ever wondered what turns a local group of guys into rock stars? Go see Common Signs to find out.

“Common Signs is ANYTHING but common. A unique blend of talent, style and charisma might just see this band through to the big time.” – Snow,

With early childhood visions of engaging the masses, Trinity Bounds and Matthew Czechowicz brought together their unique abilities of guitar and rhythm composition to form Common Signs in early 2003. Matthew and Trinity, both veterans and supporters of the Dallas music scene, began writing songs that melded Trinity’s hard-edged style with Matt’s intricate, upbeat tempos. In August 2003, bassist Ashley Glenn joined the band, bringing with him a diverse style and multifaceted musical background. Matt, Trin, and Ashley began playing venues in the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton areas, accruing many new fans along the way. In early 2004, Justin Talley joined Common Signs as front man. Justin brought with him years of musical experience and a sound that can warm your heart or get under your skin to chill your bones.

Their unique sound has created quite a buzz in the Dallas scene, and the band has been found playing such venues as Trees, The Curtain Club, Hard Rock Café, Spiro’s, Reign Entertainment Complex, The Live Room, The Aardvark, Galaxy Club, Club Indigo, The Magic Rock, Moe’s Roadhouse, Andy’s Bar, and the 11th Annual Woodstump Festival. In a relatively short amount of time they shared bills with such artists as Course of Nature, The Vanished, Supercell, Faktion, Skylar Blue, Microton, Altered, Advent, Sweetooth, Black Belt Jones, Tune In Tokyo, Pistol Whippin’ Ike, Baboon, Rockett Queen, Fray, Chiva, Just Cause, and a continually growing list. Common Signs also won a Battle of the Bands at Galaxy Club in Deep Ellum within 2 months of their first live performance! The band has finally found its own unique niche in the music scene, acquiring shows that can garner larger audiences, such as opening for Vanilla Ice at Spiro’s in Austin (south by southwest) and playing the Hard Rock Café with national act Course of Nature. They have also recently been featured on the Clear Channel Communications radio station, 106.3 The Buzz in Wichita Falls, TX.

When asked why they play the music they do, drummer Matthew Czechowicz summed it up as such, “For me there is no other form of expression beyond music. This who I am and what I do. I want to do whatever it takes to get our music to as many people as possible so that they can experience our emotions and hopefully relate.”

It’s obvious that the unique sound and energetic show that accompany Common Signs are catalysts for the growing buzz surrounding the band. They continuously strive to make each and every song better, each performance more memorable, each person a fan, and every fan a friend.
