Baby Strange shows America a new definition of cool in their latest LP, Put Out. Setting themselves apart from the recent crop of next-next-next-Strokes understudies, Baby Strange seizes upon the sounds of Motown and 1960's British arena-rock, creating a niche enigmatically described by Earlash as, "Terse, trashy, ornate and refined."
Baby Strange's brash new sound is the silver lining from a medical emergency which once threatened to silence lead singer Eric Deneen. Sidelined from their usual twenty-gigs-a-month schedule while Deneen recovered from surgery, the band discovered old Motown LP's. Once described solely with analogies to The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Oasis -- Baby Strange emerged revitalized with a new blueprint for their sound. Pairing their gritty guitar rock with seductive soul rhythms, and tailoring a new look as the bloodshot redux of early-60's vocal groups, Baby Strange emerged stronger-than-ever from their brush with disaster.
Put Out is Baby Strange's debut LP -- following on the success of 1999's Action EP and 2002's The Make-Out Sessions EP. As finalists in 2003's WBCN Rock and Roll Rumble, Baby Strange earned broad recognition in their hometown of Boston.
