Product Description

One of the hottest debuts in many years, In The Red does it again, Nuggets flauntin Texan punksters the Strange Boys release their first full length. The Strange Boys evoke a wild-eyed, porcelain skinned innocence that is capable of summoning the wayward spirit of Brian Jones. The mystery of the South couples with the mastery of rhythm to create a sound completely timeless and familiar, yet absolutely raw and avant-garde.

All of the reviews refer to a completely different product from the product offered for sale. The reviews refer to an Island Compilation 3 CD set called Strangely Strange But Oddly Normal Strangely Strange But Oddly Normal

Amazon seems to have some databases crossed, as I bought the Island set some years ago, and The Strange Boys have just appeared on my AutoRip CD list in the cloud.

There is as much art in obtaining the correct lift as there is in wilful originality. So say the wiser-than-I, and they may have a point. In today's market there seems little truly without peer or influence. Luckily, a well-chosen borrow can say much more about an artist than unlistenable experimentalism can. As always, it is just a question of what you do with it that counts.

Austin's The Strange Boys take the same influences as do Black Lips, but whereas their simple rhythm and blues is not afraid to rock, The Strange Boys seem more happily mired in diaphanous ethereality to care (in a good way). Ryan Sambol's sometimes-otherworldly and nasal vocal matches their relaxed garage-rock bounce round for round.

The psychedelic 60s of The Doors' "LA Woman" is brought to mind on early highlight "They're Building The Death Camps" before the boys later coerce her with sunny drugs as the track begins to space out. The horizontal rhythms of "Poem Party" jangle around a surf-rock riff, whereas "To Turn A Tune Or Two" and "Should Have Shot Paul" slide effortlessly towards the blues.

Just as Black Lips remain a loveably lo-fi proposition, so hopefully will The Strange Boys stay. Their catchy refrains and shambling rock `n' roll are as admirable as their seeming approach to equality and inclusion. Recommended.

Fantastic album by these young fellows. If you like the Black Lips, then this album is for you.

HASH(0x89baf81c) out of 5 stars Strange but very very tasty...! 25 Mar. 2009
By J. Kooi Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A record that takes a couple of spins probably to get to you..but when it does.. Great record! Strange Boys sound both like a lot of other bands and like no other band.. Think midtempo Black Lips, Little Red Rooster style Stones, some Howlin' Wolf guitar, some doo woppy atmospheres, some Marc Bolan style vocals. A few songs kinda rock whereas some others are hardly songs at all at first listen. But those guitars swirl and screech and never ever fail to make their point. One of those records that start their life in the wings and then slowly move to the middle of the room and grab everyone's attention..It's also the kinda record that works best as a whole, so don't go picking single songs!

HASH(0x89baf870) out of 5 stars Blast of Fresh Air 20 Nov. 2009
By Paul McGrath - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Rock and roll is pretty much dead, of course, at least popularity-wise, but my goodness gracious, there remain a few pretty good acts out there and this, by God, is one of them.

Garage rock is what a major internet music service that starts with a P called it. Garage rock? Really? Is that what the Who or the Kinks or the Stones of 1965 were? Boy, you sure could have fooled me. What those bands of that era represented--and what these Strange Boys represent--is pure, unadulterated, blasting, FUN rock and roll. Garage rock indeed. No, there is no Satisfaction or You Really Got Me here, but there are about a dozen songs on this album that could easily have fit on any first-rate British Invasion album of the mid-sixties. And I mean, yes, at least a dozen.

These guys are two guitars, a bass, drums, an occasional harmonica, and a sneering, snarling little malcontent of a singer who comes across amused as much as he is angry. Most of the time he just seems to be perplexed, but who cares? You think people listen to rock and roll because they want social change? Go listen to the Eagles, you little rodent.

Yeah, rock and roll is dead and popular music is godawful but every once in a while a band like this pops up that shows it understands what slashing, blues-based rock is supposed to be, and I for one like it. A lot.
HASH(0x89f6c06c) out of 5 stars Dont Sleep on The Strange Boys 30 April 2009
By J. M. Fishman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I fell in love with this band when seeing them live. Led by 22 Year Old Ryan Sambol, they are young but very talented. Review after review compares him to a young Bob Dylan and with his off kilter raspy voice and demeanor I cannot say the comparison didn't come to mind for me as well.

You will love this record. Everyone who hears it does, I am really surprised it has not garnered this very talented band more attention.

I'm not sure what to make of these guys, but it's awesome. Kind of a Bob Dylan doing Indie Pop Rock, but an even more whine in the voice.
