If you asked me out of the blue, who sings Takin' Care Of Business? I'd say the Doobie Brothers. Well, BTO sings that song. They also sing Let It Ride which is on this album also and both songs have been getting played on FM radio my intire life. BTO rocks a little bit harder than the Doobies. More like Foghat.
- I suppose it's just 70's rock, but these guys are somewhere between The Doobie Brothers and Lynyrd Skynrd.
Has anyone ever called Porn progressive rock? Probably not due to the excessively huge riff rockin' going on here. There is a fair share of Pink Floydisms as well. If you like getting punished and beat down by drums this album is for you.
Minimalist New York punk rock in a post Sonic Youth/Beck world. Not for everybody, but I like this a lot. Songs about the music industry and being in a band.
If the Monkees were a hard rock band. These guys have a Rock pop thing going on. Not unlike Badfinger, they're trying to pop and rock at the same time.
Acoustic guitar and bass sometimes harmonica live in a coffee house. Sounds like the Grateful Dead unplugged. I think it's a couple guys from Jefferson Airplane.
-Jorma Kaukonen on guitar and Jack Casady on bass.
