"Hitting the Silk" (Wildcat; 1998)

Reviewed by Snidermann


Rock'n'roll tastes vary as much as the colors on the spectrum. Sometimes all it takes is for a band to capture your imagination. It doesn't have to be any certain genre; it just has to hit the soul and there does not have to be any reason why.

As I listened to The Jenerators' "Hitting the Silk," I found myself getting lost in the music and getting transported to that land where everything is possible and you feel good just being there. Now that is just what music is supposed to be: total immersion into the moment. 

"Hitting the Silk" is chord-based, classic sounding rock that delivers an emotional punch that is both captivating and very easy to listen to. I really liked this CD from the start. It was simple, direct and it got me feeling really good. That is why I listen to music in the first place -- to feel good -- and "Hitting the Silk" makes me feel good.

Finally, I check out the band's website at and, holy crap! I discover that the band is fronted by Billy Mumy (Will Robinson from the old "Lost In Space" series), and the actor Miguel Ferrer. What a trip! Not only does this CD rock, it is performed by some serious acting talent. I had heard that Billy and Miguel had a band but I did not know anything more. Now I know this: The Jenerators rock!

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
