Editorial Reviews

Turbo Ocho is the 2008 release by Roger Clyne and Peacemakers and it includes a DVD. This is an audio/video chronicle of the first ever Roger Clyne & Peace Makers (RCPM) VivaCast; a revolutionary reality-recording experiment where the band and crew set up a studio in a seaside home in Rocky Point, Mexico and broadcasting daily audio and video episodes to thousands of homes. The goal was to create and share, from inspiration to the final mix, eight songs in eight days. Also on this album is Ma¤ana, a fun little ditty that the fans asked the band to include as well as M‚xicosis and Captain Suburbia which are available for the first time on a CD.

The CD is great but what makes it better is to know it was done in only 8 days.
Kevin
I've always loved this band but the quality of what was created, under so much pressure and such a short period of time is incredible.

I would highly recommend any of their albums to anyone who enjoys real good music.

I had the immense privilege of watching this project unfold daily online and being at the concert at JJ's Cantina in Rocky Point, Mexico. For those of you who don't know, RCPM wrote and recorded a song per day in eight days and then debuted them at a concert at the end of the week. This CD is the culmination of that experiment. I've always loved this band but the quality of what was created, under so much pressure and such a short period of time is incredible. This CD is NOT "pretty good for only being done in eight days". This CD is better than a lot of what you've heard in a very long time! My personal faves: State of the Art- it's just a musically perfect song. Every part contributes so much to the whole (and who doesn't love Sha-la-la's!!) Summer #39- When I first heard it I mentioned to some friends that the song makes me sigh with contentment every time I hear it. A million listens later and that hasn't changed. Mercy- Just... wow. Persephone- This one will haunt you.

8 songs written and recorded and distributed in 8 days.

A daunting task that few artists would choose to undertake, but after the chilly reception of their previous album due to what some have called it's over-produced sound, Roger Clyne and Cliff Norrell hatched this plan. And let's just say it worked.

The the visceral and raw sound that emanates from the speakers elicits a feel that these songs weren't just forced out, but needed to be made. It is a cathartic album that stands more as a statement to it's bold attempt than for any individual song, and that statement is "We still got it."

The great thing about this album is that when they get their ideas, they fire them off, and move on. There's no sitting around with a song, playing with it for three weeks or a month, only to find that the one chord is still alluding them, and junking it. Here it's get it down and move.

This is an album that both the band and the fans can be proud of. This is what happens when a band strips itself bare and finds out what's at it's core. And for Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, this is a very good thing.

If you are unfamiliar with RCPM, this might just be the introductory album for you, alluding to their previous work, while not repeating it.

This record/DVD combo just proves what Roger, PH, Steve & Nick (as well as producer Clif Norrell & unofficial 5th member Jason Boots) have at their core...pure greatness...after stepping outside their comfort zone and putting creative pressure on themselves...just to see if it could be done, success or failure...

The task...go down to Cholla Bay, Mexico, set up shop in a house, bring a portable studio...and do 8 songs in 8 days, everything from creation to arranging, recording as a band, mix and master, 1 song per day, from morning to night...and they gosh darn pulled it off!!!

I still think their prior album, "No More Beautiful World" was their best, and this is almost as great. Some cool and unexpected new directions, and it's really fresh. Here's the breakdown:

1-- "I Speak Your Language"...a cool, albeit typical, Roger pop tune, relaxing and upbeat and breezy and catchy.

2-- "State Of The Art"...really creative and complex...this gave Steve a migraine headache woking out the parts...but totally satisfying and melodic...

3-- "I Know You Know"...killer loud powerpop!!! Sorta like Tom Petty meets Cheap Trick meets AC/DC...yes really...for some reason, the chorus reminds me of "Cigarette Dangles" by Canucks ThePursuitOfHappiness...it's all good.

4-- "Summer #39"...atmospheric alt-country...with a haunting dobro slide part by Steve...done spontaneously and awesomely.

5-- "Mercy"...whatta song!!! Has a hook that hits you between the eyes, and a great, passionate vocal by Roger...one of RCPM's finest moments, easily.

6-- "I Can Drink The Water"...very cool, jammy but catchy, War-like tune, with a complex arrangement and bilingual lyrics...sounds like tough one to work out, but they did it...

Creative people like to try new things, but the artificial deadline the band imposed on itself to create the songs on this disc resulted in songs that needed more work. That's too bad, as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers have proven themselves to be one of the best bands going. If you are new to the band, I would suggest sampling one of their other albums first.

Turbo Ocho is the new album by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. For this album the band went to Mexico and created eight new songs in eight days (one per day). After creating the new song, the band performed the new song for the fans (no, I wasn't one that was down there) and posted them on the web (yes, I was one that listened on the web). For the album the band rounded out the play list to 11 songs. The songs:

I Speak Your Language - A good solid pop love song! Excellent lyrics with the band sounding good!
State of the Art - Excellent lyrics with a little South of the Border sound. Excellent flamingo style guitar sound.
I Know You Know - Upon hearing this I couldn't help but think of Roy Obersons Pretty Woman. Another love song, it doesn't do what I Speak Your Language does, but nicely done.
Summer Number 39 - This reminds me of some of the ditties I've heard from '30/'40's style country/folk music. An excellent look at a year in love. The lyrics are great, done as only Roger can. Musically, this is the most unique song and I look forward to seeing how this plays out live!
Mercy - A song of personal relationships where one must have mercy (sorry, this is one of the harder ones to summarize). Nicely done, but just blends into the rest of the album.
I Can Drink the Water - For me this is the weakest song on the album. A South of the Border song dealing with A jazzy little piece with a little brass thrown in (reminds me of Wars Low Rider).
I Do - An excellent piece that reminiscent of The Sex Pistols or Cheap Trick. A future tribute song to Rock! Should be excellent live!
Persephone - A beautiful love ballad using Persephone from Greek mythology as a back drop. Excellent in all fashions. Very different from the rest of the album.
