New Press: "You Can't Keep A Good Band Down"

October 06, 2020

"Picture a frontman on stage in a dark club. The air is hot and steamy due to the perpetually malfunctioning air conditioning, and the club smells vaguely of stale beer. The guy is wearing worn jeans, black T-shirt and headband, and he’s playing a beat-to-shit old Fender Telecaster with a lit cigarette jammed in the headstock. It’s plugged into a Marshall half stack, and the thunderous sound shakes the sweaty walls of the club. The entire vibe is the pure essence of rock n’ roll."

"Dark, Gritty, Raw, Honest" – Screamer Magazine

September 22, 2020

Check out this brand new review of 'Ferocious' by Richard Rosenthal at Screamer Magazine: "There are certain genres of music that are associated with geographic regions. Speak of 'Southern Rock' or 'The British Invasion' or 'The Seattle Sound' and instantly certain bands and songs come to mind. If someone mentioned the phrase 'New York City Rock ’N’ Roll' what would you think? 'Dark, gritty, raw, honest,' might be apt words to capture the feel of that sound." Read more at the link below!

New Interview On The Chuck Shute Podcast: "I've Heard That Slash And Duff Love The Compulsions"

September 07, 2020

On the latest episode of The Chuck Shute Podcast, when asked if he has ever had any interactions with Slash or Duff from Guns N’ Roses, Compulsions front man Rob Carlyle said: "I know those guys know about me because when (GN’R and ex-Compulsions drummer) Frank (Ferrer) was first rehearsing with the Duff and Slash combo, I was giving him a hard time. I was texting him and I said something like, ‘Make sure you rehearse my band real good for when we go on tour.’ And then he texted me back and he said, ‘I played The Compulsions for them. They love The Compulsions!’ And knowing me, I said something like, ‘Yeah, of course they love it. It sounds like they’re already on it!’” Other topics of conversation included: Earl Slick's Advice From David Bowie and The Compulsions' New Album, Ferocious! Hear more at the link below!
