Remember when punk music was actually made in a garage, and emo wasn’t on the radio? Yeah, neither do they- they’re only 18. Nonetheless, the debut album Bebopalula from Ten Till Two reverberates with a sound beyond the band members’ years. Still, they haven’t strayed too far from the emo formulas for success- particularly through the lyrical style of singer Brooks Boyer. But influences seem to range from the Steve Miller Band to Franz Ferdinand.

Despite their age, the members of Ten Till Two have put together a project with all the rises and falls of a major label release. No. one starts with energy that continues through the album’s third track, Last Night, which is followed by a conventional freefall into the roots of the genre, with (Insert title here).

If Bebopalula was to produce a single, Seven ate nine would be a contender. The addition of synthesizers picks up the pace again, and moves them from emo to full-on geek rock. I didn’t fall off the planet…I jumped is in the same vein- radio worthy except with wittier lyrics, and Table for one is the denouement to the story Seven ate nine started.

A punkier trip begins with If Roses are Red, Consider me blue, and ends with Saturday. But in staying true to the narrative feel of the album, Loser’s Luck is a calculated conclusion; bringing together all the elements that got you there in the first place. “I started off strong, but now my faith is trailing, i tried to win your love but trying was my first step in failing,” sings Boyer.

With a band like Ten Till Two, ambition is the key word. For a group of very, very young artists to even produce a record is an accomplishment of its own, let alone one that is getting radio play. Together or separate, this motivated band has a future. But for now, Bebopalula.

With influences and roots dated back all the way before time, there is a band that now walks the face of the earth. "ten till two". This band got its "official start the early spring of 2007. The band had been acquanted through music since the summer of 2006 but lack of time and dedication through certain members caused problems with the band as they had rarely, if ever played shows. But then one sunny day, they saw the light. Going through a series of players original founders guitarist and vocalist Brooks Boyer and drummer Alan Cooper sought out to do it on their own with bassist Ryan Epping.

This hardworking rock band has developed into one of the most heard of and aspiring bands in the St. Louis area. Opening for some names like Dr. Manhatten, and Red Umbrella, ten till two is no stranger to some of the National Acts.

Ten till two has always been known to write songs rapidly. Having a demo put out and a full length cd "Bebopalula..." put out in 2007, and a new E.P. they are recording now, ten till two's energetic rocknroll live performance can extend to over an hour of pure rock.

If you haven't heard of the four yet, you will. Bye and Bebopalula...
