Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The debut CD from Ultimate Fakebook is Electric Kissing Parties. It features the original versions of "Far, Far Away", and "Downstairs/Arena Rock". Plus, live staples like "Roll" and "Liferaft Halo".

From the Label

"Ultimate Fakebook has been writing and refining its brand of love-themed power-pop in the Lawrence, Kansas, area since 1994. Even though Electric Kissing Parties is Ultimate Fakebook's first release, the band is an acknowledged heavyweight on the Kansas scene... Great pop songs and awards are enough to get A&R folks worked up, and there is no doubt that the group's second full-length, which the group is recording right now, will be something to fight over. Until then, folks will have to savor the award-winning Electric Kissing Parties."

- CMJ, November 2, 1998 "...a sharp, focused powerhouse that will take you by surprise...we urge you to listen to this record. We see limitless potential in this band, and were sure youll concur."

- FMQB, November 21, 1997 "Kissing Parties is a nice collection of 10 power-pop anthems that manage to bob, weave and swerve just enough...If you are looking for comparisons, think of every power pop band that pays naked reverence to Cheap Trick or even Big Star, and youre in the neighborhood."

- The Kansas City Star, November 20, 1997 "Unabashedly infectious."

- The Manhattan Mercury, November 16, 1997 "...their full-length debut is overflowing with intelligent, driving guitars that manage equal amounts of melody and intensity...a tremendous power pop outfit..."

- Pitch Weekly, November 13, 1997 "Long on pop while still incorporating a rockin guitar sound, they have constructed a strong college rock album...its obvious these guys know how to write a song."

- The Lawrence Journal-World, November 13, 1997 "Electric Kissing Parties is a fantastic album from beginning to end...If you threw equal amounts of Weezer and Cheap Trick into a blender with just a bit of Pavement on the side, you would have Ultimate Fakebook."

- Kansas State Collegian, October 23, 1997 "If you enjoy musical passion, attitude and powerful vocals, Ultimate Fakebook will be your cup of tea!"

- Album Network January 9, 1998

5.0 out of 5 stars Can you spell "brilliant"? August 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Do you like The Replacements? Bob Mould in all his guises? R.E.M.? Then you must be a fan of intelligent songwriting. That being the case then Ultimate Fakebook is for you! What you'll find are intelligent lyrics and the catchiest hooks this side of heaven. All three band members are skilled arrangers and musicians who play as if their very lives are at stake. "Far, Far Away", "Diamond Ring", "Downstairs/Arena Rock"...oh, what am I thinking - they're all great! Buy Electric Kissing Parties and their second release - This Will Be Laughing Week - and find out for yourself what we, their adoring fans, already know: UFB absolutely, utterly, and completely rock!

5.0 out of 5 stars this cd rocks! December 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I saw these guys in detroit a couple weeks ago, and honestly didn't know who they were. After their live set blew me away, I had to get this cd. The guys in this band are really cool, and the hooks in the songs are really catchy. You will be singing along to this cd after a few plays. Check out these tracks: "far, far away", "roll", "Circus Horrors", and "Downstairs/Arena Rock".

Very few bands can get so much accross on their debut, but Ultimate Fakebook has established themselves with thiers, "Electric Kissing Parties." Non-stop hooks and catchy chorus after catchy chorus. One of the best rock records of all time. Check out "Roll" and "Diamond Ring."
