"From The Phoenix New Times June 23rd 2005 Issue"

Longshore has a nondescript band name and CD cover art that looks like something you'd expect pool-cleaning tablets to be packaged in. But what goes a long way in making up for it are those precision harmonies, and synth lines that suggest lushness without detracting any punch from the guitars. The band describes itself as Brit-pop, but think the romanticism of Prefab Sprout, and Belle and Sebastian, more than anything else currently flying under the Union Jack. Longshore even captures the sound of some long-lost 1983 Cure-meets-OMD gem on "In My Head." In an amazing burst of enterprise, the band has only been together three months, but fans of 86ed Valley units might recognize the players even if Longshore's Web site doesn't name the bands. See the group live at the Paper Heart on Friday, July 1 (longshoremusic.com). - Serene Dominic

"CD Review by Mike Cryer"

Excerpt from Review.....

"Listening to Britpop quartet Longshore is like watching one of those John Hughes' films from the 80's........'This Is Where It Ends' starts with a cliche, 'once upon a time,' but the lyrics are sung in a breathy homage to the Furs' Richard Butler and the contrast is jarring....Longshore inspires Molly Ringwald-style dance moves because the music is, in the end, a good time." - Get Out Magazine, June 30th issue


Released "Once Upon A Time..." March 2005. The single "Awake" is currently #16 on the Rock Alternative Charts of Garageband.com and "This Is Where It Ends" is climbing through the top 100 in the Alt-Pop category.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Our band focuses on several important areas: good image, good musicianship, good live performances, good songwriting, and good business-sense. We're in it for the music, but we understand it takes more than a great song to make it big, it takes creating a buzz. And that's what we're about. Four guys from different Tempe and Phoenix bands getting together to create a pro-sound and a pro-show. Recently played at Tower Records Grand Opening for their Tempe Show to great reviews.
