Bright Lights Description
Product Description Long overdue Anthology of the much written about, but seldom heard Flashcubes. Combines 16 tracks recorded in their original 1977-1980 period with 4 songs recorded at a 1993 studio reunion, and one live 1978 track. Also includes an interactive CD-ROM section with song notes, lyrics, discography, sessionography and Northside Records catalog. Review After listening to the 21 tunes on this disc, it’s hard to understand why this band didn’t achieve greater notoriety and why Rhino left one of their cuts off of its Poptopia: Power Pop Classics of the 70s disc. Blend many of the artists featured on that Poptopia disc together with Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, Dwight Twilley, the Knack, the Romantics and Tommy Tutone; toss in some merseybeat, Buckinghams and Cryan’ Shames 60s influences – and you’ve got the Flashcubes! This foursome could deliver everything from mid-tempo pop songs like ‘Christi Girl,’ ‘Misunderstanding’ and ‘She’s Not the Girl’ to a ballad that Dwight Twilley would be proud to include in his repertoire – ‘Fourth of July.’ Thank you, North Side Records! What I missed in the 70s I can now enjoy in the 90s! As an aside, the CD liner notes are excellent and well-researched; and made this reader wonder how many other regional pop bands, from that era and of this caliber, could release similar anthologies. — Amplifier MagazineI am very pleased to report that the Flashcubes, and all their wonder, stand the test of time…..They were the Replacements long before Tommy Stinson spilled a beer on his amp….enough top notch material to go head to head with any major pop band… this is a beautiful captured moment. — Yeah, Yeah, Yeah MagazineThe 21 tracks on BRIGHT LIGHTS provide ample evidence that the Flashcubes were the great lost power pop band of the 70s. This stuff is the equal of virtually any power pop act of that era, surpassing the work of familiar names like the Romantics and the Knack. And the newer tracks – Frenays Its You Tonight and Beverly, Lenins Angry Young Man and Armstrongs savage Shes Leaving – prove that the Flashcubes can be as creative today as they were in the 70s. — Syracuse New Times See all Editorial Reviews
