Radar 'O Reilly

BandRock

We play classic rock/jam band/stoner rock. A la Led Zeppelin/Cream/Queens of the Stone Age. We have almost 2 hours of original material and about an hour of covers. We also improvise well. What you get is pro level musicianship from the hardest working and lowest paid fools in all of South Florida.

Biography

Radar O’ Reilly is 3-piece rock band that consists of Righteous Richard (vocals, guitar), Death Metal Douglas (bass, vocals - who was on the cover of the Broward New Times in Nov '04) and Sence*Sational (drums, vocals). Radar O’ Reilly has been at it since the middle of 2002 and could be defined more by what it is not rather than what it actually is. This group is proud of the fact that there is nary a trace of nu metal, pop-punk, emo, rap rock/metal or indie rock (well maybe a slight touch) to be found. "Classic Rawk", "Jam Band" and/or "Stoner Rock" fit the motif rather nicely. Fans of hard rock acts such as Monster Magnet, Deep Purple, The Flaming Lips, Queens of the Stone Age, Urge Overkill, Cream, The Who, Led Zep, Cactus and many others (too numerous to mention) may be the ever-lucky populace to benefit from the Radar vibe as it penetrates the sonic astroturf!! Richard ,Douglas and Sence's vocal harmonies put most area acts to shame.

The group has performed at various hi-profile schmoozefests including the CITYLINK FEST, the F*ck the Patriot benefit, The "62 Musicians for 62 Years" Dave Daniels of Churchills Birthday Bash, the Miami Rockfest, Bodog Battle of the Bands(finalist) and (last but definitely not least) the annual Death Metal Douglas Birthday Bash.

Lyrics

do or die

Written By: RR of ROR

you got us wheelin' and dealin' and slicin' the pie till we bring home the bacon again
you got us hurtin' uncertain reach for the sky burnin' our lives at both ends
you get your fair share and then some wait till we die then your grabbin' the money again

you do or die, don't ask why, just do or die

You say the sky is fallin' the crisis is high but your hiding the reasons again
you've got a camera on site the feed is live interview the familyand friends
your reportin' distortin' livin' a lie the ends justify the end

we must cast our idols down
head for higher ground
cast your idols down

you tell the same lie over and over again it becomes what you call the truth

your teachin' less and less, and Barnies' your friend dumbin' us down at the roots
you've got your mergers and sellouts corperate men squeezin' the blood out of you

money matters

Written By: RR of ROR

FLOAT ON RAYS OF SUNSHINE, POCKETFUL OF RAIN, SPIRIT AND FLESH ARE GIVEN TIME, GROW OLD AND COMPLAIN

LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT
WELL I AIN'T MAKIN' A DIME
THERE'S MONEY FOR THE TAKIN,
THEN SOMEONES TAKING MINE

Money

YOU'VE GOT MONEY
WE WANT MONEY
YOU'VE GOT MONEY
MORE MONEY
YOU'VE GOT MONEY
WE WANT MONEY, YEAH

SPIRIT GOES TO JESUS, FLESH FEEDS THE GRAIN, THE MONEY THAT YOU LEAVE US CAN BUY COMFORT OR PAIN

Discography

We are busy tring to complete our first CD after over 5 years as a band. We have enough material for 3 CD's easily. The raw demos are on the mp3 part of our website radaroreilly.com that takes you directly to our Myspace site. We think they sound pretty killer so far.

Set List

Our typical set list is 7 or 8 songs (all originals and 1 or 2 covers). When playing with 2 or more other bands we do not have the freedom to perform as long as we would like. The set is about 35 to 40 minutes.

Our typical song length is about 5 minutes. We have written over 3 hours worth of original material in the past five years. Titles include Another Day, Carpe Diem, Conduit of Chaos, Do Or Die, Down, Fool's Ride, Leave Them Wanting Less, Losers Parade, Mazes of Invention, Money Matters, Nation, Sometimes, Them Bones, Why Dont' You.., Wonder Strange and about four-five others I can't quite remember at this juncture.

The most recent covers we have done on a semi-regular basis are The Immigrant Song by Led Zep, My Generation by The Who (I love to show off with the bass solo) and Dirty Deeds by AC/DC. All have been recent crowd pleasers . In the past we have done covers by The Who, Led Zep, Dinosaur JR., The Minutemen, Sebadoh, Steppenwolf, Cream, Hendrix and others I can't qu
