Dance Hall Racket
RECIPE FOR HI-OCTANE ROCK AND ROLL : RACKET- STYLE
1. Start in 1986: combine two members of the legendary underground power-trio "The Touch," - Drummer "JR" and guitarist Johnny "Messiah", with their astonishing range of musical flavors. Let energize for 16 years. 2. Add the wizardry of bass guitarist Mark Sedlock! 3. Throw in electrifying classics by the Clash, Billy Idol,
Talking Heads, Greg Kihn Band, Social Distortion, and The Ramones. Blend with the latter-day power-pop of The Foo Fighters, U2, and American Hi-Fi
4. Stir in the abiding love and respect these players show the bands that touched their lives with every note they play. 5. Heat on "high" until the weekend…when you add the last essential ingredient-YOU. Throw your own pumped-up self into the mix, check your mellowness at the door.DHR ain't Soft…DHR ain't folk. Wanna be sedated? Go someplace else. Wanna boogie till the cows come home? Bring your dancin' shoes and check out the Racket!
