So check this out. Some 16 year olds from Cincinnati can totally sing and play instruments better than you. How does that make you feel? I know it makes me feel good to know there are young musicians taking cues from the likes of James Gang instead of Joe Jonas…not that I have a negative view of the youth of America or anything…

Super Tuesday’s current offerings feel like only the beginning. The right spark and this group can easily bust out of Cincinnati and start entertaining audiences all over Ohio…no scratch that, the world! - Tyler Groover/TwoGroove.com


Cincinnati band Super Tuesday keeps music simple.
The classic power trio lineup – consisting of Phillip Johnson on guitar and vocals, Andrew Rogers on bass and Rob Bingham on drums – plays tight and concise garage rock. The band forgoes pretension and million-note-a-second guitar solos in favor of a striped-down and to-the-point sound.
“The White Stripes are definitely one of our main influences and bands like the 1990s,” says Johnson.
This is far from a Jack White rip off, however. The band also cites some alternative music pioneers when talking musical inspiration.
“I love Kim Gordon and Kim Deal. I love the Pixies,” says Rogers.
The group's 2009 EP “Tedious Burr” shows the surprisingly mature and focused outfit tearing through brash and bombastic songs. The album benefits from some tasteful production.

“We ran across a guy named Ric Hordinski,” Johnson says. “He’s an original member of Over the Rhine.”
The band’s live show proves that Hordinski probably didn’t need to work to hard to pull these sounds out.
Rogers and Bingham lay down rock solid support to Johnson’s three-minutes-and-a-cloud of dust guitar stabs. Johnson’s vocals melt perfectly into the cracks and crevices of these songs. The members of Super Tuesday keep the focus on the song – and those are the real stars here.
“Sol” starts with a jumping bluesy progression. “¡Espontáneo!” swaggers and struts with a confidence rarely heard from younger bands.

The songs can be sampled on the band’s myspace page.
Many garage bands may suffer from disillusions of grandeur, but Super Tuesday’s simple approach and solid songs show a band ready to breakout of the garage. - Rusty Pate/Examiner.com

Bio

SUPER TUESDAY is a three-piece garage rock outfit from Cincinnati, Ohio. Super Tuesday's sound is reminiscent of The White Stripes, The Pixies, and The Strokes. The band is known for the bluesy, soulful voice of vocalist/guitarist Phillip Johnson, and the laid-back rhythms credited to wily half-asian bassist Andrew Rogers and infamous carrot-top drummer Rob Bingham. Super Tuesday's sound can be characterized by their raw, minimalist approach to composition and their unconventional, creative lyrics.
The band was formed in January, 2007. After a year or so playing together, Super Tuesday recorded a low-fi, self-titled EP. Then in 2009, Super Tuesday recorded a second EP, entitled "Tedious Burr" (for a line in a Lewis Carroll poem) with a much more evolved and matured sound. Tedious Burr was recorded in just 3 days at Monastery Studios, by Ric Hordinski (who was a founding member of the group Over The Rhine, and has recorded internationally successful acts including Phil Keaggy, the Ass Ponys, and David Wilcox). It's his words that describe Super Tuesday best. Blown away by the age of the band members, who are all sixteen, Hordinski said, "Working with Super Tuesday, one can't escape the notion that we're just lifting the curtain on a stageful of precocious musicality. This will be a band to watch."
In the span of just 2 years, Super Tuesday has been very successful. They've released two EP's, played at venues all over Cincinnati (including the Blue Note, the Greenwich, Dirty Jack's, and the Mad Frog), have achieved a dedicated following of all ages, and have won both SuperNova's and Gorilla Productions' Battle of the Bands. Super Tuesday is truly "a band to watch".
