Description

Guitars Bass & Drums on CD

They're upbeat bad boys ("Count on Me"). They're pessimistic roots rockers ("Paranoid Blues"). They punk it up ("Nothing"). They bop ("Yeah Yeah"). They analyze ("Oh dear, she's having a meltdown"). Like the Buzzcocks, The Reducers have two strong creative voices at the helm -Peter Detmold and Hugh Birdsall are each great songwriting frontmen. Together, they're unbeatable. Their shared knack for emphatic rock statements makes the job of the rhythm section-bassist Steve Kaika and drummer Tom Trombley-that much harder, and that much more impressive. Some Reducers songs are admittedly a hair-band's breadth from becoming a much cheesier kind of rock, so it's the band's stripped-down style, unencumbered solos and nods to rockabilly, punk and I'm even gonna say hardcore Henry Mancini that keep all this 30-year-old band's material on the highest plateau of hip. As for this album's extraordinary 10th track, "My Problem"-a typical Reducer mix of tough vulnerability, misfit identity and emotional control, yet handed to a guest vocalist, Connecticut proto-indie '80s contemporary Mark Mulcahy-whole books could be written on it's virtues, if the scribes could even pick up a pen after hearing it. - Christopher Arnott, New Haven Advocate.
