Flying Underground

Along with Chris Arduser on drums and bassist David Ramos, Flying Underground is a post- The Who / Cheap Trick / early Aerosmith (Give him a break, Lovely was born in Boston)/  Television / Replacements/ Guided By Voices, blah blah blah...kinda thing. A bit proggy and psychedelic. Attitudinally owing much to the likes of John Lennon, Robyn Hitchcock and Randy Newman, lyrics are visceral, often whimsical and oblique, but always heretical and subversive, thank you very much. In other words, a rock band. Duh.

"...crisp, melodic songwriting and untouchable musical chops, while also introducing McCracken as a versatile and charismatic vocalist. Opening tracks... pop with a Cheap Trick-like energy, with McCracken's voice giving off the attitudinal vibe of peak Runaways. The title track is the Ep's most melodically durable song, it's soaring hooks sinking in and sticking immediately, but each track on Death of Stars is an impressive example of dynamic and effective pop songcraft." Mike Breen, CityBeat
