"Death of a Teenage Idol" CD
Genres: Southern rock, country-rock
Dec 16 - 22 2002
fun, and pretty darn rockin', Pie Eyed Pete mix traditional
Americana with a tangy rock edge. Death of a Teenage Idol is a
perfect example of their style; each of the songs is completely
satisfying and infectious - you could have these tunes stuck in your
head for days. Similarities can be drawn to The Supersuckers
and, more recently, The Ribeye Brothers.
As is always the case, some songs stick out more than others.
"Nowhere," the album's first track, is a gritty little ditty
that would work perfectly heading off a long road trip. "Won't
Fool Me," meanwhile, is the perfect slower song, mixing the
Americana rock influences of the other tracks with a calmer,
horn-laced atmosphere. And then there's "Grandaddy," one of
the album's best; it mixes the Southern rock stylings of Huevos
Rancheros with Pete's signature growl. Other tracks, like the
Nashville-styled "Give It Up" and the funky "Get Me
Home (Please)" also are sure to satisfy.
If you're the type of person who just likes to pop open a beer and
chill sometimes, this gritty, catchy music will be perfect for you.
