ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There is no question about what Detroit’s own “The Black List” has set out to accomplish: mayhem with a melody. This high-energy quartet has quickly caught the attention of the Detroit music insiders as the band to pay attention to in the future. Taking a cue from other Detroit artists like The Stooges and MC5, the live show is a no-frills sonic kick in the mouth. This combined with memorable melodies; insightful lyrics, layered feedback and a blue collar work ethic. There is no doubt after seeing The Black List - you have witnessed the new pride of the Motor City.

The Black List's heart and soul is front man Jim Walkup. A veteran of the Detroit music scene, Jim’s voice and pure energy has lent itself to Detroit’s staple “Blindshot” and “12 Steps Behind” His right hand, Bassist Mike Schoonover, plays with the energy and conviction of a man possessed. Mike comes from the Detroit underground punk scene as the voice of “The Jolly’s” and the bassist of “Detroit 442”. Mikes counter-part; Sam McLean is the hard hitting rhythm guitar player. A relative unknown in the Detroit music scene, he’s a well-respected artist throughout Northern Michigan for his solo projects. Rounding out the group is percussionist Jay Miller from “A Darker Broadcast” and “Lazyboy”. Jay play's with the precision of a Swiss Clock, and almost a chip on his shoulder as he integrates musical fills to his pulse pounding rhythms.

Some of the past gig’s that The Black List has played includes: Detroit’s Warped Tour, Metro Times “Hamtramck Blowout”, The Magic Stick, Masonic Temple’s “Fountain Ballroom”, Emerald Ballroom, Small’s, Northern Lights Lounge and The Twenty-five Hundred Club just to name a few. With the highly anticipated release of a full length Album in the spring of 2007, The Black List will be appearing in a venue near you to redefine a live performance and re energize the degraded music scene.

The Black List has preformed with The Pink Spiders, Koffin Kats, The Independents, Bedford Drive, The Whiskey Diaries, The Amino Acids, Best Idea Ever, Sons of Strippers, Far from Finished, Guns on the Run, Street Crime, Malpractice, The Cameo In, The Brian Schram Band, Troubleman, Left in Ruin, Cetan Clawson Revolution, Thieves Agreement and Season High.

GREAT CD AND LIVE SHOW!!!
Having been a fixture in the Detroit music scene for the past 15 years, I have seen a lot of great bands, but its been along time since I've seen one like The Black List. If you like Face 2 Face or Lagwagon, well your in luck.

With all the bullshit hair bands out there, I've been searching for a great rock band. For a while it was Bang Bang, but now its TBL. (Thanks to Riff2 for making them Band of the Month) The singer is full of energy and you can really feel his passion during a show, but not nearly as much as the bassist. Honestly, I caught these guys at Small's for the first time and I though he was processed. In a nutshell, The Black List is a energy filled live band...no more, no less. This energy even translates to the CD (which I picked up at the CD Release)

Anyway, if your looking for a good show or CD... Check out to The Black List.

GREAT ALBUM
It seems that The Black List pulls influence from all the great socal punk bands of the past. Well put together, it really shines on Carry The Weight, Lights Out and Laughing At You. Anyway, solid recordings... well worth the cash.

Great Find
I stumbled onto these guys at the Joe Strummer Tribute Show at The Bland Pig in Ann Arbor. Liked them so much I bought the CD and can't stop listening to it. Really reminds me of the Face to Face album "Big Choice"

an album, finally!
this is a band who has the old school approach to playing music. while they aren't opposed to showmanship, this is about as straight forward as you can get. when they play live, they prefer to blast through their songs with intensity, rage and energy. you can see the passion on their faces. this all translates EXTREMELY well onto disc. standout tracks are "better days" and "watch it slip", both which kind of have a noisy vibe to them. definitley reccomended.
