UNCLE LIGHT


"3" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

The title of this self-produced CD is "3" and that's because there are only three tracks on it. All three tracks are also cover songs. First, there's a cover of Steppenwolf's "Sookie Sookie," then there's a cover of the classic "Game of Love" and finally there's a cover of The Who's "Shakin' All Over."

The CD is solid enough, sounding slightly like a heavier version of The Fabulous Thunderbirds throughout, but - being a collection of covers - it doesn't really tell you much about the band or give you any idea as to their actual music abilities. 

The band does have a full-length CD of original material available and we expect to be reviewing that soon. Nonetheless, from hear on "3" I can tell you this: If Uncle Light were playing a bar in Vegas, I wouldn't walk out on them. The three covers here are faithful, efficient tracks and make me look forward to the original stuff. 

Uncle Light: Wayne Ward - guitars, vocals; Kelly Martin - bass, vocals; Al Sys - drums.

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.
