“Their name might be a mouthful — Cannoneers of the New Command — but the music of the new L.A. quartet is easy to swallow: It’s garage rock ’n’ soul that harks back to the swaggering British bands of the early ’90s and to grittier ’70s before. Absent the current scene’s fetish for synths and electro trickery, Cannoneers keep things so straight-ahead you’d think black leather jackets never went out of style. It’s not far from the sonic crunch singer-guitarist Mike Monosky achieved with his last project, the Pacific, who put out albums in 2005 and ’08, respectively. “We’re just trying to keep things authentic,” says Monosky, who’s now joined up with Robert Pierret and Tim Galvin (formerly of the Beautiful and Damned), along with Joey Taylor. Having released the “Sadie Was a Girl” 7-inch last year, the quartet is finishing up an album they are targeting for a spring release. ||| Download: “You Don’t Know” ”
“Their uncoming 7 inch single Sadie was a Girl / Shake the Law is good old fashioned garage band rock n' roll, the like of which is all to rare these days. Sadie introduces herself in style with a guitar riff straight off a lost Primal Scream song. It is simple, joyous and authentic rock music.”
