“For the Benefit of Mr. Kite, Bob Dylan challenges Jeff Lynne to a game of Pac-Man in the green room at the Ed Sullivan Theater.” That was Peter’s description of the band’s track, Dark Dark Night.
Mack Winston’s clever lyrics are dappled with 4-syllable words. The combination of his alluring voice with strong rhythm section and the sweet extra compliment of Jesse, the keyboardist, on the house B3, concocts a hunger for the songs that creeps under your skin. There’s even a hint of the Doors (could it be that’s just because Ben, the guitarist, slightly resembles that guy……what was his name?…).
Anyway, this is rock ‘n’ roll, no foolin’ around. Intelligent, aesthetically pleasing, the real deal.
