- JERRY LEHANE - (CD)
It was 30 years ago today. Well, maybe 29 but close enough for rock n roll and theres that old Sgt. Pepper line we like to trot out andadapt to modern times.Right around then, Jerry Lehane and some musician pals went in to a Boston studio on three consecutive late nights and banged out fivesongs, the very five youll be hearing on this here EP.Listen to em and tell me this, though: Dont they sound like they could be freshly minted, straight outta todays garage? Or, if you wantto acknowledge the pedigree, maybe you could call em vintage fresh."They were all done over three days in 1991," says Lehane. He was, as they say, between bands. The Dogmatics, formed in 1981, hadcome to an abrupt end in 1986, when bassist Paul OHalloran was killed in a motorcycle crash. (They have since re-grouped off and onover the years and play a handful of gigs, mostly charity outings, every year.) Post-Dogmatics, Lehane played guitar and wrote songswith the Matweeds from 1987 to 1989. His band Hotbox was in the future.Youll hear some rowdiness on the record, but it was not a wild free-for-all session with copious amounts of booze flowing. "We did itpretty quickly," Lehane recalls. "Recording sessions are pretty boring. Its work. You pull up the car, you go in at midnight, you shut thedoor and the outside world goes away.Lehanes sound and inspiration have remained the same over the years. "Its the garage rock sound that has resonated with me - earlyKinks and Stones, Chuck Berry, Them, ? and the Mysterians. Not every note is in the right place. Its rough, but warm."
