Col. Parker

Angeles as a cover band. They eventually became the acclaimed Thursday night event at the local Cat Club o­n The Sunset Strip. As the Thursday night crowd swelled, an A&R from Icon took notice and approached the group with a deal. The group then wrote songs reflective of their classic rock influences such as the Faces, Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, and Mott The Hoople just to name a few. The finished product is "Rock n Roll Music"; a great rock record that fills a void that has been empty for a while. Slim Jim Phantom, Col. Parker's drummer describes the album as the music you used to listen to in high school. Some of the album's highlights are "Can't Get That Stuff", a grinding country-rock track and "All The Kings Horses", a great classic rock track with a modern sound that can't be beat. Throughout the album, the guitars are given a platform to really show off an energy that is positive and upbeat. The album also features a cover of Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz"and the New York Dolls' "Pills". I recommend Col. Parker's Rock n Roll Music to any classic rock fan.
