ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music Liberation Project October 2004
There's something about a band that has swagger and attitude, but when the music to back it up, there's something special there. The Hell Yeahs do a better job at bringing low down dirty rawk 'n' roll to the masses than The Murder City Devils. The Hell Yeahs pull it off because you can dance to every freakin' song. Now I know that's not "cool" or "rad" or "hip" to dance at rock shows anymore. The kids in the Northwest would rather tap their toes and nod their heads, but MCD brought us up to the line. We were almost ready to shake our booties, and then they broke up. But for those of us still standing at that line, The Hell Yeahs are going to push us over. How can you deny the body's shimmy shake response to the Hammond organ in "Can't Do What I Should"? The pounding rhythm of "Sympathy For Brian Jones" get your toes tappin' infects your leg and travels up your body until you find yourself - gasp - dancing! The Hell Yeahs are the great new hope for a rebirth of dirty American mod music. Kids, let go of the indie rock pretension and let your bodies move to the sound of The Hell Yeahs.
The Hell Yeahs are a four-piece rock band from Portland, Oregon with sonically bombastic songs and an uncompromising artistic direction. Influences include: The MC5, AC/DC, Pabst Blue Ribbon, The Stooges, cigarettes, hockey and the Rolling Stones. Guitar World magazine singled out guitarist Carl Hinds for his "thashing abandon and vigorously dirty guitar work..." and Hit Parader has called his song writting "...startlingly fresh, startlingly alive and just plain startling." The Hell Yeahs, until now known primarily for their over the top live shows, driven by the explosive rhythm section of Ty Durbrow and Kevin Moll on bass and drums, have now released their first full length album. Recently bringing Philadelphia native Jeff Aufiero into the fold as a second guitarist is sure to bring the energy of the live show to even higher levels.
Carl's former band, Dandelion, which CMJ referred to as the "Best New Thing From Out Of Nowhere", released 2 albums on Columbia Records and performed with the likes of : the Ramones, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Monster Magnet, Agent Orange, Redd Kross, and many others. After breaking up in the late 90's, Carl relocated from Philadelphia to Portland. Eventually finding Ty and Kevin then formed The Hell Yeahs.
The Hell Yeahs sound has been described as "guitar-driven poppy garage rock in all its glorious lo-fi refinement"
. Picture a "primal scream" era John Lennon playing with the MC5's Wayne Kramer. With an emphasis on energy and songwriting, The Hell Yeahs scream to be heard, and more importantly... have something to say. Their songs dance with the devils in our lives...you know... all the wrong things: bad relationships, bad choices, monday hangovers, crooked politicians, pawn shops, and the unending quest for the perfect high.

In July 2004, The Hell Yeahs released their self-titled debut album on the indie label Jump The Gun Records. Adam Rohosy and Carl Hinds recorded this highly anticipated album in 2004 at Andras Music studios in Portland, OR. A video for the song "Stronger than God" is also on the cd. It was filmed by Rob Noble And Crux Films. Since that time The Hell Yeahs have been preparing to launch a national tour from the confines of their rehearsal compound.

Worthy!!!!
It's over, finally!! I threw my guitar away!

I guarantee that they could kick it better than any White Stripes could
Well by the liner notes we know that these rockers are no fan of the current Bush administration with the bashing to the bill of “all other lying motherfuckers using fear to achieve what the Truth could never justify”. Couldn’t say it better myself. Their sound is the retro garage “The” band sound that’s been finding an awful lot of time on Top Ten Lists, Billboard, and MTV. But what’s nice and unique about The Hell Yeahs’ approach is their genuine songwriting ability. Sure it might be a standard chorus-verse-chorus thing but I guarantee that they could kick it better than any White Stripes could.

The Hell Yeahs
The Hell Yeahs (Jump The Gun Records)
By: Alex Steininger

Channeling the energy and youthfulness of a younger Iggy Pop, and playing with the conviction (and carelessness) of the early CBGB's scene, The Hell Yeahs sound every bit New York - and they're from Portland, Oregon! Gritty, sleazy, and wild, this is what rock 'n' roll should be - unbridled, punchy, and tough. And even after they've hit the nail on the head of rock 'n' roll, they hit you again with their melodic outreach and ability to write a hook underneath screaming guitars and pounding rhythms. Yes, this is what rock 'n' roll should be. If all rock bands had this must passion and conviction, nobody would ever claim rock to be dead. Hell yes to The Hell Yeahs. I'll give it a B+.

...garage rockers with a penchant for Beatlesesque segues...
Can hockey-playing garage rockers with a penchant for Beatlesesque segues sound perfectly timed without coming off like the unfortunate tripe known as Jet? In the case of the Hell Yeahs, the answer is most definitely. The smart snarl and heavy romps on the band's self-titled album only get better live...

jk

great hooks, great guitar riffs- you'll find yourself humming both
the melodies are catchy, the guitar is dirty; its everything garage rock is supposed to be- but wait, there's more! Apparently not content to be just a great garage type band, the hell yeahs have added touches of psychedelia which provides a nice contrast to some of the darker, heavier riffs on the album(listen to satellite and while my guitar gently weeps). The result is a much more multi-dimensional record than most bands of the genre. And,oh yeah, you'll have these songs stuck in your head for weeks!

guitar-driven poppy garage rock in all its glorious lo-fi refinement
The Hell Yeahs self titled CD congers thoughts of a dirtier,darker Hives with a sort of primal John Lennon-y distorted screaming vocal. It’s bombastic, pretentious, guitar-driven poppy garage rock in all of it’s glorious Lo-Fi refinement. It’s all energy from the beginning to the end like jump-starting a car in your bare feet, very exciting for a short time.
A hyper-statically charged infusion of slamming distorted guitars, in an ingeniously executed rhythm venture with pounding drums and bass, brings home the idea that this band is all about momentum. The entire CD has a stadium feel like if you turned down the band in the mix you’d hear screaming girls in the background.
The don’t name the Beatles as at least a superficial influence but with “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” as an album track it’s hard not to go there just a little

...sweat and blood rock and roll.
...raw to the bone rock and roll. The Hell Yeahs have a sound that harkens back to the sweat and blood of the early rockers - straight ahead toonage for the rest of us. Hell yeah!
