"Peanut Gallery - Exhibit 1"

Review of Wrong Side Of The Word at Consensus.Com:

"Great Pop Hooker. Or Hook Popper. Or Melodic Hob Knobber. Hip Be-Bopper. Double D Knockers? I'm gonna quit before I can't explain any of this away. Cool mixture of Taupin/John and Leon Russell piano punch. Phrasing extrodinaire.Cool tempo retardation..syllabic fills..smoky trills. Poetry kills. Yer too good for American Idol man. Stop shaving yer chin." - Consensus.Com

"Peanut Gallery - Exhibit 2"

Review of Wrong Side Of The Word at Consensus.Com:

"Young Has Beens is a great name for a band producing music retro enough to be fresh and clever enough to be interesting. I wish the vocals were higher in the mix, as from the few snippets I can irrefutably garner, this is a very well-crafted, smart lyrical effort. The tune moves through various phases so that - while remaining integrated in its vibe - it's immensely interesting. I would have a hard time understanding why someone wouldn't like this musical endeavour. Keep at it guys, you have a great sound. The concluding line of the song made me laugh right out loud. Good, clever and interesting: nice combination! (They are good enough that I lingered to listen to another tune; it was even better. Make it to this site.)"

"Peanut Gallery - Exhibit 3"

Review of Wrong Side Of The Word at Consensus.Com:

"You have the ability to make a retro pop sound fresh again. Great energy and compelling. The lyrics makes this listener tune in and take notice. Vocals are expressive and engaging with a crisp production a top notch song!" - Consensus.Com

File YHB between the rock of ages and unibrow sages. The wisdom of the stupefied ricochets dangerously around classic pop structures that evoke both new-world disorder and old-world corpulence. In performance, the band chugs through their set with demented abandon, inviting the audience to feast at a gaudy table set with the bones of rock and roll's checkered past and the foul offal of post-punk's dubious future. Make no mistake: You can put lipstick on a pig, but you can't put Young Has Beens on a shelf. -THIS CUSTOM BIOGRAPHY WAS CREATED USING "BILL & TED'S AWESOME MUSIC PRESS GRAVITAS GENERATOR"!
