Daring, personal, rare. Call it “the real thing.” Dave Goddess Group drives the lonely and twisted road to rock n’ roll salvation, shifting gears between truth-telling ballads and gasket-blowing screamers with regard for neither fad nor fashion, trend nor taste.
Can a band that’s “got the to bees or the not to bees” really bring "something new" to a world of mediocrity? If “enough is not enough” can we ever be satisfied? Just maybe.
DGG’s debut CD, Something New, comes on angry like a just-kicked hornet’s nest before settling in to something between a sweat-soaked confession and a mad road trip. Guitars blaze and snarl. A restless sax begs for mercy. A drum/bass tsunami engulfs the sonic landscape. Lyrics whispered and shouted cry out to the hungry, “put your love to the test; put your heart on the line.”
It’s rock as religion, painfully out of step, but somehow walking the bleeding edge. It wants to matter. It wants to make you think. It wants to rock your soul and break your heart.
Dave Goddess Group’s private dream is now in the public domain. Who could sleep through this racket?
