ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you like big guitars and a dose of psychedelia, you’ll love The Space Sharks!

From the fast and heavy "Run For Cover," to the acoustic/electric "Perfect," recording the band's 9 song debut CD has been a thrill for Lead Vocalist/Guitarist Lonnie Richard: "This has been the best time we've had rocking together. When we recorded the CD we knew we had a good take when it hit us in the gut, rather than thinking about things like 'Okay, here comes this part, and I'm going to do this thing I've worked out for hours until all the spontaneity and life have been sucked out of it." He laughs. "Instead, we went 'Yeah, this feels right!' when we had a strong take we all liked, which most often was the first or second take. Anything after that, we were kind of repeating ourselves."

“The response to the music and band has been great!" says Drummer/Backing Vocalist Mike Martino. "Yeah, we definitely tried to keep that live feel, even on a slower song like 'Fools,' which is probably my favorite. It's a little slower than the other songs, tempo-wise, but it definitely has that crackling energy."

Together with bassist Bob Bergeron, this power trio based in Baltimore, Maryland USA kicks into high gear. Lon adds "Bob's a melodic madman and probably the loudest bass-player I’ve ever heard! It's really a blast with the three of us rocking out; we’ve been friends since high school, so this is a dream come true. We’ve been in different bands over the years but decided to form The Space Sharks in 2009 and never looked back!”

Mastered by Jonathan Wyner, "The Space Sharks" sound is crisp and big. Slap on a pair of headphones for trippy panning effects and swirling guitars. It's The Space Sharks at their best. Yeah, baby!

Here's what the critics are saying:

"This is feelgood summer music I really enjoyed on the very first spin. A highly recommended purchase."
Christian Eric Mumford - Aural Innovations.com

"It rocks hard, and it rocks with precision. All nine tracks are killer."
Bill Copeland - Bill Copeland Music News Online.

"Well oiled instrumental precision and finely tuned, versatile vocals."
Michael Meade Editor - Tastes Like Rock Music Magazine

"The emphasis on skill over preciousness will provide a welcome respite to those turned off by the overly mannered style of much of what is currently considered hip."
Kevin Finn - The Noise Magazine, Boston

super funky fuel
can not wait to see you guys live on NOV 5-love the 'trippy panning effects and swirling guitars' amongst other things-can listen to "Perfect" over and over....................................

Space Sharks Chomp Rock
The Sharks have brewed up a whale of an album - Godzilla riffs, guitar solos with a lots of right-hand tapping and fretboard fireworks - Bob and Mike supply the rhythm aggression we like – Lonnie and Brian’s vocals are classic smooth and layered – lots of “chicken-skin” moments on this album. This is a well executed collection of original hard rock songs – the musicianship is great, the writing is great, and it sounds sooo good pumped up loud in the earbuds. These guys are chiseling their own face on the Mt. Rushmore of rock – they belong up there!

Flashback city - with a twist!
60's, 70's, 80's, 90's plus some new styles in just for measure! This CD is full of style changes, nice vocal blends, rockin' beats and a little humble stuff inbetween. If you like guitars driven to 11 this is your next CD. As the song says "Run for Cover"!

Guitar Feeding Frenzy
The lyrical side of this CD is really strong. There are elements of 90s grunge that I really enjoy, along with Jefferson Airplane 60-70s psychadelia. I think Lonnie's blazing guitar work is the reason I throw this CD back on time after time. Very strong album, good work fellas! Bring that tour down the East Coast!
