ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Welsh' rab'bit, n. 1. a dish of melted cheese, usually mixed with ale or beer, served over toast. 2. A POWER POP band currently residing in Eugene and Portland, OR (a Siamese twin split in half if you will).

Basically Welsh Rabbit just wants to rock. However, they don't sound like most of the stuff you hear on "Rock" stations these days. That could be because their musical knowledge goes back further than Pearl Jam, Alice and Chains, and Metallica. With influences such as the Beatles, Elvis Costello, Big Star, The Stones, Blur, Weezer and assorted little known New Wave and Power Pop bands, Welsh Rabbit manages to sound like little else around, yet suspiciously familiar at the same time. And they wear ties on stage. What else do you need? So give the CD a spin, and give Welsh Rabbit a chance. You won't regret it!



"You've got that vintage sound going." Pat from Weezer and Special Goodness.

"You guys will have no problem [making it] because you're really good." Greg Brown of Deathray (formerly of Cake)

"Buy whatever they have to sell. Just on principle. What you do with it afterwards is up to you. Just buy it." Higgins from the American Girls.

"Great Pop tunes and soaring guitar solos!" Marty Chilla of the Sugar Beets and Creator7.

"When are you coming back next? I want to book you again!" Eric Zero from Club Boomerang.

"Welsh Rabbit Rocks!" Robert Russell, professional Opera singer.

"You are awesome, can I get a picture with you?" Brian, a nice kid we met at one of our shows.

Right on the money-and then some
I bought this disc because CD Baby guaranteed I'd like it based on my purchase of the Rosenberg's EP. CD Baby was wrong-I loved it, and all due respect to them, even more than the R'bergs.Welsh Rabbit joins that short list of bands (Elvis Costello, Cheap Trick, Alejandro Escovedo, Emmylou Harris) I'd drive five hours to see. Thanks, CD Baby.

Great Sound
More like Weezer and Costello than Beatles, but then again, didn't a lot of that come from Beatles as well? Original, Fun, Melodic, and Soulful!

Concerned Citizen

Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!
With West 11th Love Letter on their heads, each member of Welsh Rabbit should be charged with six counts of Writing Decent Pop Songs With Actual Melodies. They must be convicted, speedily, then hung by their neckties. We must do this now before these brilliant songs make their way onto the airwaves, interferring with the mundane crap that's already there.

Chris From The Viola Contingent

Rock and Roll needs Welsh Rabbit
If the opening chords of 'Where You Are' don't wake you up, nothing will. This band puts real, honest energy (and some damn fine songwriting) into a genre that is becoming bloated with rap-rock jock metal and sissy-boys claiming to be punks. Welsh Rabbit ignores these trends and focuses on being themselves -- just a good rock n' roll band that can craft a fine tune. In other words, just what the rock world needs right now.

The Rabbit Rocks!
Any band that does "sha la la" background harmonies is all right with me! "Float Away" is really gorgeous..."Do You Want to Dance," sounds like the Soft Boys meets U2. That's a compliment! Love that thereminy sound on "Tonight." Nice discordant piano stabs on "My Summer Girl," adds a bit of spice and makes me giggle. "West 11th" is almost too good...I'm totally hooked & look forward to more! Hurry!
