Earl Clifton and The Pin-Ups are A two-piece modern rock band with a blend of alternative rock, punkified blues, old school rock n roll, folk, garage, and pop appeal! Their music is filled with lucrative stories about trials, tribulations, hot rods, rock and roll dives, dogs, and family. Fronted by a stellar song writer and singer Earl Clifton!
RIYL: the White Stripes, the Ramones, the Cars, the Stooges, Iggy Pop, the New York Dolls, STP...
Earl Clifton and The Pin-Ups may not be a household name, but at least they are able to say they are playing a style that isn't the same as the in thing right now. They are often compared to the White Stripes, but the only similarity that I really see to them is that there are two people that make up the band. They play a garage type style, however this focuses more on the combination of many genres of rock then that stereotype offers. From alternative to classic rock, the influences of rock are definitely evident on this debut. If your looking for something that you can find on radio stations next to the 70s bands like Zeppelin, Aerosmith, etc... and at the same time could find them mixing it up with more modern alternative bands like Nirvana, Local H, etc... Then this is for you
