The Earaches / Press

“Listening to the Mighty Vin show on WSIA I was introduced to a new Staten Island band that I had not previously heard of. The song was catchy, the type of straight forward rock song that has bits of punk but errs more to the side of pop that will not leave your brain for ages! I asked Vin what the song was and was told it was by The Earaches and called "What’s the Deal, Kim". It’s a solid tune written as an ode to Pixies bassist Kim Deal. Clever. That was all it took for me to ask for a copy of the song and Vin one-upped me by giving me the band’s latest album Playing It By Ear. Upon popping it into my CD player I was struck immediately by how catchy everything is. The songs are simple nuggets that find was to attach themselves to your cranium. They are pop-punk for the most part, terribly similar to a band like The Mr. T Experience, and they have some wit and humor behind almost all of the lyrics. ”

“Being bandmates and members of the same family — as all three members of Staten Island’s The Earaches are — has its advantages. For one thing, it has helped the band stay together for five years now. “We see each other all the time, so we’ll never be strangers,” drummer Adam Caddell said recently from his home, with guitarist, vocalist and twin brother Andrew Caddell. “It’s not like we’ll be friends, then there’s a ripple in the relationship and we don’t see each other ever again.” ”
