"Silver Bullets CD Review!!!"

Slick River
Silver Bullets

Though a side project of some members of LI jam band/funk rockers Harold's Trousers, Slick River has demonstrated that it has the talent to carve out its own distinct sound. In fact, Slick River sounds entirely different not just from the Trousers, but also from anything out there on the local scene at the moment.

Slick River's Silver Bullets demo takes you back to a completely different era. While most local bands are into emo, punk, hardcore and indie rock, Slick River's classic blues, garage rock and old school R&B influences are sure to make them stand out. Think a mix of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Eric Burdon and the Animals, with the later and more aggressive MC5, and a slight contemporary kick a la Nirvana's cover of Leadbelly's Where Did You Sleep Last Night. The group's demo sounds like something right out of the Sixties.

Stand-out tracks are the raucous, dirty garage rock of Jesus Told Me to Listen and the country blues tune West Pacific, which closes out the EP.

The members of Slick River each have many years of experience in their musical backgrounds. They have played most of their lives, touring the United States as well as Europe throughout the past 10 years in previous other bands and side projects (King Django, Harold’s Trousers, Elastic Engine, 12 Inch Bic). Now coming together to form a new project, Slick River is that bad cowboy that will ride horseback shattering saloons across the country with hard rock and blues like bullets blazing from dual revolvers.

The band officially came together in the late summer of 2006. After working on songs together for only a few months Slick River began playing their first shows. The band recorded their first demo “Silver Bullets” in Fall '06 and has continued writing songs while honing their stage presence by playing select events in early 2007. In Spring '07 another 5 demo tracks were added to the Silver Bullets sessions and thus Silver-er Bullets (Vol2) was created (featuring a total 10 demo tracks available at all Slick River Shows FREE!)
The band is always promoting itself through their website, mailing list, live events, word-of-mouth, promo items, and all other forms of shameless self-promotion.
