The name of the band and the title of the album pretty much say all you need to know about this groovy Hollywood side project. For those who were born and grew up in the 1970s, watched Saturday morning cartoons religiously, sported feathered and blow-dried hairdos, wore tube tops or half-shirts, and swooned or danced to Shaun Cassidy records around the family hi-fi, After School Special is a fabulous flashback to a golden pop past. After School Special is certainly knowing and ironic, but it sounds much more like a loving tribute, a joyous celebration of everything that made and still makes the music of the 1970s so campy cool. Teen Machine makes no musical judgments. The band throws every '70s genre into the same pot, and treats it all with the same adoration. Glitter rock, bluesy boogie, bubblegum (a cover of the Ohio Express classic "Yummy Yummy Yummy" is included), power pop, and disco -- even the Laurel Canyon sheen of Fleetwood Mac from time to time -- all make appearances on the album, although the band leans most heavily on the shining guitars of power pop and the thick beats of glam. The songwriting duties are shared by Fuzzbubble main man Jim Bacchi (who is probably the band's pseudonymous lead guitarist El Diablo) and lead vocalist Cody Jarrett, and the co-ed septet also includes members of Dig and Felicity cast member Amanda Foreman, one of the trio of female background singers dubbed the cartoon-like Tube Tops. Their LP collections seem to all have the same records in common: Sweet, T. Rex, Kiss, Cheap Trick, the Partridge Family, the Brady Bunch, Leo Sayer, and Elton John. ~ Stanton Swihart

The BellRays - Have a Little Faith

The BellRays - Have a Little Faith
In wav - Scans are included

1 Tell The Lie
2 Time Is Gone
3 Chainsong / I've Been Searchin'
4 Pay The Cobra
5 Snotgun
6 Have A Little Faith In Me
7 Change The World
8 Detroit Breakdown / Horn Interlude
9 Lost Disciples
10 Everyday I Think Of You
11 Maniac Blues
12 Third Time's The Charm
13 Beginning From The End / Dark Horse Pigeon

Sounding closer to Aretha Franklin than Kathleen Hanna, Kekaula's soulful pipes often seemed at odds with the three-chord punk fury of the BellRays, but the aptly named Have A Little Faith offers salvation for this long-running L.A.-area quartet. The band doesn't abandon punk rock so much as balance the old roar with new sounds like the horn-driven soul of "Third Time's The Charm," the bluesy synthesizer of the title cut, and the moody Middle Eastern rhythms of "Lost Disciples." Those yearning for the more in-your-face side of the band will get an earful from the terse "Shotgun" and several others. Proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks, this album will be a welcome double take for anyone who thought they knew the band and a soul-stirring introduction for new converts. --Tad Hendrickson
