Atlanta band The Booze conjurs late-’60s Rolling Stones on free mp3 from debut LP
We frankly can’t believe no one else had called their band The Booze, but we’re glad it went to a band as badass as the Atlanta group that picked the name.
For one thing, they sound an awful lot like late ’60s Rolling Stones on “Kick Me Where it Hurts,” the free song from their forthcoming debut, “At Maximum Volume,” which is due March 8 on Underrated Records — and late ’60s Stones is a damn good sound.
Friends Chaz Tolliver and Randy Michael (not the prick who used to run a half-assed midwestern media conglomerate) formed the band in 2007, though things didn’t really get rolling until Michael quit his gig as the guitar player in Butch Walker’s band to focus on The Booze full time.
It’s paying off now: the band plays with tight swagger on tightly constructed, catchy rock ‘n’ roll songs with just the right elegantly wasted tone.
