Recorded in the Fall/Winter of 2007, Nothin' On But The Radio
takes a great mold, breaks it, and builds a better one! Produced by Dave Bartholomew, the band members focused on making a record that felt like a band, not your typical paint by numbers type of record you hear everyday. An honest record, with no tricks. Real Guitars. Real Amplifiers. Real Drums. Raleigh's Bleeding Hearts may have been Stayin' After Class
on their debut CD, but their newest release finds them graduated and all grown up to a more mature, but still rockin', sound. That's not to say they've abandoned their angst-ridden, 70's style riff rock, with hooks so big you want to hold up your Pabst Blue Ribbon and scream from the very first note. Musically Nothin' On But The Radio
, would fit right into any music collection where Cheap Trick's Live at Budokan
, KISS' Alive
, AC/DC's Highway to Hell
are favored discs. Listen carefully and you'll hear a little .38 Special sneak into guitarist Joe Yerry's riffage. And you'll definitely hear plenty of musical references to North Carolina's own semi-forgotten '70s pop-rock geniuses Nantucket. The latest CD explores what happens the morning after, when the party's over, you're all alone and the good time girl who broke your heart is headed off to rehab.
