Backstage Winnipeg CD Reviews

By Curt T.


It's been a few months since I've heard a really good rock band. Well, a new one anyway!

Rocketface delivers 12 fantastic tracks on their sel-ftitled album produced by Matt Dematteo whose also done work with Big Wreck, Danko Jones and Hawksley Workman. The band consists of singer/drummer Joseph Janisse whose vocals will grip you immediatley, guitarist Ray Zilli who also contributes to the vocals, and bassist David Markham who also lends his vocals to this powerful trio. At first listen, you will hear overtones of The Trews and Jet, but have a closer listen and you will be mezmerized by excellent songwriting that will move you in many ways. This Toronto based trio should be proud of their debut album and hopefully uo will too!

4 out of 5 ****
