Four Or Five Ways To Play These Chords
Fronted by the Cookie Monster’s kid brother, Toronto’s !ATTENTION! is back with their second release “Four Or Five Ways To Play These Chords”. The songs are fast and poppy and catch your _________ right from the first note. This band sounds like a combination of the guitar work of Yo Man, Go!, the vocals of Down in the Dumps, and the harmonies of Junior Battles.
Following a tradition of free releases, you can get their first 5 song demo from JUICEBOXDOTCOM.
Courtesy of Jonathon Hunter: !ATTENTION! started as a concept for a two-piece pop-punk band (Scott Pasko on drums and Jonathon Hunter on baritone guitar) and ended up something (almost) completely different. In a span of about two weeks, the band gained three new members, Glenn Barrington (vocals), Nathan Richards (guitar), and Jim Scarth (bass) and developed the songs into something that would make their sixteen-year-old selves crap their pants. Jonathon, Nathan, Glenn, and Jim have been playing in bands together since the mid-nineties and, about a year ago, Jonathon met Scott on a commercial shoot (Scott was there because he had tattoos). As Scott and Jonathon developed songs together, they hung out, drank beers, and discovered that they grew up on the same fast punk beats and catchy guitar hooks, so clearly these five dudes were born to play in a band together.
