The Bloody Lovelies: On The Verge
By
Some Truth And Little Money (CD Cheap Lullaby)


If there is one common thread that runs throughout great rock music’s brief history, that element would be an irrepressible, blistering passion. Regrettably, the business of music has gradually managed to repress rock’s unpredictable fire and make it as threatening as Disneyworld on Ice. The Bloody Lovelies, however, are a Los Angeles-based band that proudly carry the torch and plan to blaze a new trail based on raw energy, zealous performances, and pop perfection.

The Bloody Lovelies have already gathered an impressive list of loyal fans. Their first release, Some Truth & A Little Money, released on their own Cheap Lullaby label, features a stunning 14-song collection recalling tales of wounded wisdom sung to addictive melodies. Singer/pianist Randy Wooten’s vodka voice coaxes and whips the listener into ecstatic frenzy as the band collectively punches and shifts like a young prizefighter hungry for a title.

Most artists on the verge of success would carefully look both ways before crossing every career corner, but The Bloody Lovelies rely on their musical instincts to guide every move. Wooten reveals that the group is much more interested in pleasing themselves artistically than conforming to some ephemeral trend that will dissipate as quickly as it emerged. The driving force behind the quartet’s unconventional approach is to create the most honest, sincere music possible, warts and all. Wooten explains, “I never want to hold back at all with my singing. We just let it rip every time and take chances . . . you can always pull back later.”

One of the most inspiring aspects about The Bloody Lovelies’ debut is that it creates a visceral bond between the artist and audience. Wooten observes, “I listened to a lot of records when I was a kid because I felt like there was somebody else on the other end of the speaker that understood what I was going through.” The Bloody Lovelies have the one rare, intangible quality that no corporate boardroom will ever be able to manufacture: the ability to connect with fans.
