Extra Credit
 
Extra Credit Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $11.00
Artist: Brad Marino
 
 
Quantity:
 
Totally rockin’ solo debut full-length from the frontman/guitarist for The Connection and member of The New Trocaderos!  Brad has spent the past year writing, recording, playing every instrument, and producing “Extra Credit” with a little “extra” help from his friend Kris Rodgers on the keys and mixing board. What you have is an album filled with tried and true rock n’ roll with hints of country, stabs of punk, and jolts of power pop, created in the garage. Featuring tunes like the power pop punk sweetness of “Broken Record Baby”, head boppin’ and fist raising of “Fit To Be Tied”, Mick Jagger swagger of “No One Else Tried It”, and the country hearted barroom twang of “What Comes Naturally”. Pure, untainted, top shelf rock n’ roll.” – Audio Ammunition.com  “Marino serves up a dynamic and breathless 11-song rock, pop and roll romp on his beat-driven solo album that finds him paying homage to a group once dubbed ‘England's Newest Hit Makers,’ Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Elvis Costello and, well, Rockpile with the gloves on. The guitars are plugged in and raving, and, oh yeah, the guitars are plugged in and raving.  It's that kind of album, about a minute and a half shy of a half-hour long, with most songs dressed in tight-fitting get-in-and get-out-before-they-overstay-their-welcome ensembles, which is as it should be. These songs take no prisoners and make no apologies.  From the hit-the-road-running ‘Broken Clocks,’ a breakup song in which the girl's the bad guy and the breakneck-paced solo channels Chuck Berry, to ‘C'mon, C'mon, C'mon,’ about a girl who plays hard to get, Marino hits the mark with rockin' and rollin' spirited performances (he plays all of the instruments other than the keyboards, which were essayed by sometime Connectioner Kris Rodgers). The album comes to a close with a four-on-the-floor, there's-a-speed-limit? cover of Berry's ‘Bye Bye Johnny’.  The record is this season's breathless hit platter.  Cue the guitars and get that snare a-drummin'...Brad Marino's pumped and ready to rock, pop and roll.” – Alan Haber/Pure Pop Radio  It’s all Rockpile meets the Ramones, Mick and Keef get into a tussle with the Flamin’ Groovies, The Knack gets all tangled up in blue… get the picture?  We do, and we like it!
