“RA-6600 may be a duo, but their late-’70s-vintage style sounds much bigger thanks to fine harmonies and some of the best songs in the business.”
"The RA-6600 deliver with their take on classic AM radio pop smashed up with post-punk attitude. Mark Medley (CPS, Raging Fire) and Daniel Olivas (The Boomgates) have the local pedigrees to make a perfect night of great homegrown rock."
"You guys are •#%ing awesome!"
". . . a great local band who have found unique ways of filtering the music of earlier decades through an ’80s alternative rock sensibility to produce something new for our times. The RA-6600 picks up on the glistening radio-friendly pop of the late ’60s and early ’70s, pushes it through the filter of New Wave rockers like Squeeze and early Elvis Costello, and ends up with pure pop for the 21st century."
"this is very cool stuff."
“Nashville punk-alternative-indie rock veteran Mark Medley (CPS, Raging Fire, Mercy Sanction, Tabasko Kat and more) and Daniel Olivas (The Boomgates) deliver a five-song shot of irresistible pop. Drawing inspiration equally from the finely crafted pop confections of the late '60s and early '70s along with the New Wave post-punk sound of early Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Squeeze — it invokes the sense of what might have been had if the young and angry Mr. Costello of 1978 could have forged a collaboration with Burt Bacharach rather than the much tamer affair the two old vets eventually produced. But Olivias and Medley aren’t just aping records from their high school days. They’re putting their own twist on them with a sound informed by an additional 30 years of music history — creating irresistible pop songs that need no reference to any one decade in order to be enjoyed. ”
