ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you've been just sitting and waiting to have your ass kicked, wait no longer. Dr. Rage & The Uppercuts are the real deal. They are 'Hittin' Wood and Diamond Hard' and bringing it with groove and soul to spare.

Dr. Rage & The Uppercuts are a hard hitting, riff based Blues/ Rock band with a feel that pays homage to the spirit of the late 60's and early 70's blended with an in-your-face, high intensity sound. They combine raw energy and attack with a soulful, bluesy delivery that will bring any party to a fever pitch. This four piece group is comprised of three veterans of the Canadian music scene and a young rhythm guitar player whom they've been grooming for the stage. The band was formed after an impromptu studio jam proved too tantalizing to ignore. Based on this recording, Dr. Rage was offered opening gigs for Bo Diddley and the mainstage at Manitoba Summerfest 2005, before ever having played a live show.

Dr. Rage & The Uppercuts recently completed a western Canadian tour that included dates in BC, Alberta and Manitoba. The group has recieved a very enthusiastic response everywhere they played. One rabid fan even purchased five autographed cd's for his entire family. With a combined 40 years experience and a no-nonsense approach to their music, Dr. Rage & The Uppercuts are Hittin' Wood and Diamond Hard!!

BLUES ROCK BUILT FOR THE FUTURE
DR. RAGE & THE UPPERCUTS: Hittin' Wood and Diamond Hard
Absurd Machine Records

Blues rock tends to favor musicianship first and foremost, but occasionally you'll find a band that is also willing to push the field in new directions and to a whole new level. The Canadian based rock band, DR. RAGE & THE UPPERCUTS is surely concerned about moving blues rock into the future, with outstanding songwriting and the awe-inspiring guitar work of Dr. Rage (whose vocals are just as powerful), which manages to sound both high-flying and respectably restrained at the same time. 'Hittin' Wood and Diamond Hard' is very POWERFUL. DR. RAGE & THE UPPERCUTS is comprised of three veterans of the Canadian music scene and a young rhythm guitar player whom they've been grooming for the stage. The band was formed after an impromptu studio jam that was just simply mind-blowing! Is it groove based rock ? Yes it is, an that's because it is plumbing the depths of life, which includes pain. DR. RAGE & THE UPPERCUTS is the real deal. Their music beats you over the head from the start and does not let up. Featuring smoldering tracks like, "Backbiters and Syndicators", "Hey Lil' Sister" and a smokin' rendition of Willie Dixon's, "I Just Wanna Make Love To You". There is no doubt in my mind that this music will move you in way unimaginable. DR. RAGE & THE UPPERCUTS will remind music fans of bands like, Gov't Mule and Allman Bros. The whole album rocks! Other standouts include "Higher", Good Mornin' Lil' Schoolgirl" and "The Burden". The songwriting is top shelf and the band is tight. This CD is best listened to when alone, either in the car with volume set at 10, or at home with the headphones on and the volume set at 10. The songwriting is top shelf and the band is tight.
