Album Notes

The Daily Flash, a band with a history extending back to the ‘60’s, is been heating up Seattle stages. The group is comprised of Steve Lalor, a founding member of the original Daily Flash, Barry Curtis, original member of The Kingsmen, Don Wilhelm, master musician and vocalist with credentials from various Northwest acts including Heart, and current Kingsmen member Steve Peterson, a drummer and vocalist admired by audiences and professionals alike.

The Flash repertoire includes original music, folk rock and classic rock tunes from the 1850s on, as well as new interpretations of contemporary music. This diverse menu is presented within a framework of vocals and harmonies that has been described as “stunning”, and comparable to the work of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Toto, and even The Beatles. Standing ovations have been numerous and sustained at concerts, fairs and festivals all over the Northwest.

"Fantastic! Best rock band in Seattle!" - Charlie Morgan, Morgan Sound

"Seattle's best folk-rock group" - Richie Unterberger

Album Review of "Nightly" - The Daily Flash
The media has changed the way we look at music and musicians in a variety of ways. Perhaps the most significant is the way it has convinced us all to think in labels. This is “New Country” and that is “Indie Rock” or “Steam Punk” or some other term that allows the writer to get a clear handle on what he is talking about. Problem is, pretty soon the audience they’re aiming at begins to adopt those labels and defining music they like as though the labels were somehow real dividers between musical ideas. I have a problem with that, and the latest album from The Daily Flash, named “Nightly” is a good illustration of why.

The Daily Flash has been creating and playing quality rock music since the ‘60’s, and so, using the modus of many writers, would be defined as “Old School Rock”. But then there’s the fact that their music is based around a solid acoustic guitar base. Well then, how about “Acoustic Rock”? There are a lot of Folk Music ingredients in Flash songs too, so… er, maybe, “Classic Folk Rock”, and on and on. This band is nearly impossible to classify. Their songs are like musical quantum particles: every time you try to pigeonhole them into a style, they seem to move.

“Nightly” combines so many good things in rock, it’s hard to know where to begin. The bass and percussion aspects of this group are solid and massive. Steve Peterson and Don Wilhelm have been doing this for a long time, and that experience manifests itself as a rhythm section that anchors the band beautifully, while displaying a musicianship that purely soars at times, (as in the bass lead break in “Oh Suzanna”.) The vocals are butter smooth, as in Barry Curtis’s lovely honesty on “Road” and Steve Lalor’s “But for your Love,” which introduces the fine harmonies that The Flash produce so effortlessly. Each member of this band is good enough at lead vocals to hold a room on their own, but put them together as The Daily Flash and it becomes an easy thing to see how this band has managed to survive musical fashions and definitions and continued to excel at their art. Steve Lalor and Don Wilhelm trade off leads on many of the songs and vary the texture and intensity of “Nightly” in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, as in “Amazing House”, a slick combination of “House of the Rising Sun” and “Amazing Grace.”

“Nightly” is wide and deep and bright and dark, and combines a passionate love of music with a level of execution that makes me smile again and again. It is possessed of both tenderness and music to break speed limits by. It rocks and swings and shuffles. It is unclassifiable. I love it!
