The hierarchy in today’s music scene has changed dramatically. Over the past decade, most of the once mighty have fallen. Many genres and sub-genres have come in and out of popularity. Never one to care about or follow trends, Pulley has become a prime example of an old fashioned, hard working, sincere punk rock band. Coming together in 1995, Pulley was often labeled a “punk rock super group” or a “side project.” True, the band was made of several veterans in the So-Cal punk rock scene, but Pulley was no side project. In reality, five friends were fed up with dollar signs and marketing strategies. They longed to make music for the reasons they did back in the garage when they were teenagers. It was all about fun. Pulley came together and became the “everyman” of punk rock bands. There was no fashion sense or image here. There was no manager or business model to follow. This was about adventure---getting in a van with your buddies and going out on the road to play for anyone who would listen. All they armed themselves with was honest music and lyrics that anyone could relate to.
After releasing five full-lengths on Epitaph Records, a split EP with NY’s The Slackers, contributing songs to countless compilations and, most recently, sharing their story in their “behind the music” style DVD, Pulley are back with their sixth release. Scott Radinsky (vocals), Mike Harder (guitar), Jim Blowers (guitar) Tyler Rebbe (bass) and Tony Palermo (drums) have returned—and just in time to save your ears from the artificial, over-processed, auto-tuned music wasteland. This five song EP delivers a blast of catchy, uplifting, and timeless tunes that will get you going and put a smile on your face. Fans of melodic punk rock rejoice!
