Synopsis

Amazon.com
Some time around their second album in 1988, this Fingerprintz offshoot was tipped as a contender in the U2-Waterboys-Simple Minds vein. Those hopes never materialized, but their anthemic reach and questing, intelligent songs have only improved. Fashionable they're not, but you could do worse than try "Killing for God," "27" or "Henry's Black Shadow." --Jeff Bateman

Amazon editor is WRONG

"This is not the Silencers featuring Jimme O'Neil. Don't be confused - this is some punk band with the same name and holds no candle to the magic behind the Silencers. Don't buy this - go buy a Blues for Buddah by the Silencers instead. And to the Amazon reviewer dude - uh, did you even listen to this album?
Sheesh"

"Deleware guitar, bass & drums trio play wild instrumental music dominated by the supremo surf guitarist Eric Toth. Titles hit all the genres from hot rod to lounge to space. Some drippy tremelo guitar on "Martini Lunch" while it's all chunka-chunka reverb surf pickin' & glissandos on "Bleach Pit", "Drag Queen" and "Mr. Transmogrifier." Rumblin' bass & drums accompany Eric's Link Wray-like guitar attack on "In From The Cold" while "Rough Rider" blends just right amounts of spaghetti-Western twang and surf guitar. Finally, the outta space vibrato guitar sounds of "Spaceman" has gotta be heard to be believed!"
