Title: Rockets Bells And Poetry
Artist: Toy Trucks
Label: Black & Wyatt
Product Type: VINYL LP
Jeremy Scott wrote all but one of the songs and does lead vocals and guitar.. He was bass player for the original Reigning Sounds. The Toy Trucks are collectively 180+ years old and are fueled by equal parts cheap beer, cheap thrills and Cheap Trick. Over the band's multi-year existence, songwriter/leader Jeremy Scott (ex-Reigning Sound) has developed an "anything but another crappy love song" ethos which has resulted in the songs on the band's first full-length, Rockets Bells and Poetry. ("We stole the title from Mama Cass Elliott," Scott explains.) Over the course of said album, the band (Scott, guitarist Dylan Cranmer, bassist Ryno Hanson and drummer Steve Barnat) prove conversant with, among other things, Rascals-like blue-eyed grooves (Don't Be So Easy), grisly true crime balladry (57 Bayview), updated Del Shannonesque psychodrama (Hot Tears) and honest flat out rock and roll (I'm on the Dish But I Ain't No Rag). As both a stand-alone statement and a teaser for the band's revved up live show, Rockets Bells and Poetry should satisfy anyone's rock/garage/power-pop itch quite nicely.
