ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Now Hear This..." is the debut album from veteran-rocker “supergroup” The Split Squad. Featuring 13 tracks, including a cover of The Small Faces' “Sorry She's Mine,” Now Hear This is the unmistakeable product of its members common influences, rooted in the classic powerpop, punk, glam and garage rock of the '70s and '80s.

Formed in 2011, The Split Squad was assembled by bassist/singer Michael Giblin, of the Pennsylvania based powerpop band Parallax Project. The band is comprised of a team of heavy-hitting veteran musicians Giblin had met and worked with over the years, on tours and various recording projects. The members of the Split Squad boast about 150 years of collective experience as working musicians, and include:

• Drummer Clem Burke, founding member of Blondie, and a 2006 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Burke is also a highly sought-after session musician who has worked with Pete Townshend, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop and Joan Jett, among many others.
• Guitarist Eddie Muñoz of L.A.’s legendary powerpop outfit The Plimsouls (whose single “A Million Miles Away” charted on the Billboard Hot 100) and more recently Magic Christian and Parallax Project, with Giblin.
• Guitarist Keith Streng, founding member of seminal rockers The Fleshtones, longtime fixtures of the New York garage-rock scene that grew from the famed Manhattan music club CBGB.
• Keyboardist Josh Kantor, of The Baseball Project and Boston-based folk-rock band Jim's Big Ego, who also serves as the official organist for the 2013 World Champion Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Now Hear This was produced by Seattle music icon Scott McCaughey, best known as a founding member of cult favorites The Young Fresh Fellows and the Minus 5, who has also played and toured extensively with R.E.M. Adding to the star power are guest appearances by McCaughey, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four), and Mike Gent (The Figgs). The album was recorded in the summer of 2012, at Woolly Mammoth Studios in Waltham, MA.
