ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"They're not kidding when they say they take big chunks of their sound from Rolling Stones and the Stooges; from the deep wells of 70's classic rock, punk and glam. For rock that is chunky, gristly, and dripping with saturated fat, the Good Looks have not only captured that perfectly abrasive rawk sound but spin it like a centrifuge for
a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts." CD Baby


"When The Good Looks played to a packed Hole in the Wall last weekend, the force of excited showgoers caused seated onlookers to abandon the Las Vegas-style dinner theater setup for a standing view. With amped-up antics, danceable grooves, raunchy guitar licks and relentless hand-clapping, The Good Looks showcased their explosive brand of diverse rock music that refuses to be pingeonholed into any particular genre or style. Set to blast on March 6, "Let the Needle Drop" is TGL's debut aural A-bomb that is destined to catapult them into the very best of Austin's rock elite..." Daily Texan, Austin, Texas. February 2004

Todd Telfer - KZYX&Z FM

A STAGGERING WORK OF FRIGGIN' GENIUS
This is easily the best album released by anyone in 2004. At long last, "The Good Looks" are getting some much-deserved radio airplay.
Favorite Tracks include:
"Disco Rob" - a modern rock rave-up that makes you wanna get up and dance. Great bass and drums work here.
"Watch You" - A kickin' tune perfect for rocking out in the car. That Glakas kid is killer on guitar.
"Sounds Like 1969" - References to the Stooges' "1969" aside, this one reminds me a bit more of 1971 - "When the Levee Breaks" specifically. Ron Asheton-like Stooge guitar mixes effortlessly with Led Zep harmonicai. Iggy vocals complete the picture.
"Big Now" - Speaking of dates, this one combines '69 with '96, by mixing "Cinnamon Girl"-esque riffs with a rousing Wilco-esque chorus. This is sure to get your feet moving.

Don't delay, order the next big thing today - The Good Looks "Let The Needle Drop".

Great
"The Austin Texas independent label Victim Records who also brought us the great Choking Ahogo album “Radars and Maps” have put out The Good Looks debut album. Now with that foreknowledge firmly pressed into your cranium you should know what to expect—great indie rock wedged with superb production noted for its groove. Does it disappoint? Absolutely not. “Please Please” is the kind of funky rocker that would have had Ducky spinning about in the record store hoping to steal some love from Andi. And no that analogy isn’t completely out of line—there is certainly an 80’s (and late ‘70s) vibe going on here with a bit of a nod to such luminaries as The Clash (see “Disco Rob”) and maybe a bit of what Riff Randell would have rocked to in The Ramones-fueled classic “Rock-n-Roll High School” (just listen to the piano rocker “Dear Mr. Charlie”). Well there’s a reason that South by Southwest is held in Austin Texas—it is the music scene and bands like The Good Looks that are leading that charge." Smother.net
