“ What they play: "We take a pop approach to rock," said guitarist Hurd. "It's not just energy and noise." The songs on their newest tape include the tough rhythms of Goin' Down Hard or I'm Down and the more delicate Abducto, with its chiming guitar riff. History: This New Bedford-based band reversed the usual order of things, starting out as a studio project about three years ago and then evolving into a live band. Hurd and Hadfield met through a mutual friend. "I heard him playng one of his songs on acoustic guitar, and I could just hear it coming over the radio," Hurd said. The two started recording at a small studio, then hooked up with Rosenberg, a childhood friend of Hadfield. Drummer Macomber, the final member to join, had once played with Hurd in a cover band. Name game: Originally, the band was called Cadillac Elvis, but that had something of a retro feel -- "too dusty" as Hurd puts it. "Satellite," on the other hand, has that space-age appeal.”
