Mike Maves "On keys, Greg Dechert. Among his countless credits, Greg played keys with Uriah Heep, Bad Company and toured as part of David Gilmour's (yes that David Gilmour) band. On guitar and bass Roger Marin Jr. and Darcy Yates, former players from the legendary Fred Eaglesmith's entourage the Flying Squirrels. On drums, former Fifty Diamond Rocks drummer and Vegalite frontman Matt Keighan. Mike Butler and Frank DiTillio from the incredible funk outfit Matinee Slim and the Ultralight Orchestra put their two cents worth in while pedal steel wiz Burke Carroll, and guitar players Sal Piccirillo and Mark Murphy help make this album burn."

You hate yourself, you hate yourself
Spinning your wheels, sitting on a shelf
You hate yourself, you got nothing to lose
Mama you hate yourself.


These feelings are sometimes very recognizable. When it's performed with so much passion, then you can almost enjoy those feelings. As on Silvertown by the Roger Marin Band. A delicious album full altcountry with the energy that's necessary to overcome failures... That's called Rock 'n' Roll really. The Canadian Roger Marin learned the profession as a steel and lead guitarist with Fred Eaglesmith and on his third CD he formed his own band. Beside Marin (vocals, guitar, steelguitar) there is Matt Keighan (drums, guitar, vocals), Phil Besley (bass, guitar, vocals) and Mike Tuyp (guitar, vocals).

The title track sounds something like "Devil's Right Hand" by Steve Earle and in "Hold Your Head Up" you hear nice harmonies and the guitarloop refers to the early Beatles. "It Brings Me Home" vocals and rhythm sounds like Joe Jackson. Silvertown is rootsy and poppy at the same time. Catchy melodies with a light punk hook, songs with reflections (It's a long way down / Been so long since I touched the ground / Gotta take a shot whether you win or not / Can't hang around waiting to drown / Stuck on a ship I'm never gonna sail / 35 years old I'm burnt out, man / Bumming around the promised land / Stuck in a hole, Lord I'm out of control) or a lovesong in walking tempo like Rosie, Silvertown has it all. And an extraordinary ending with "How ya doing tonight", in this song you can hear some hiphop and a children's choir.

The young man is a modern day traveling minstrel. He is the epitome of roots music because he gets to the soul of the matter: a song that everyone relates to because he's tapping into the human condition. He charms his audience by singing about Texas moons, road trips....

I went once with Roger Marin from Ontario over to Manitoba in the summer, Once to Niagra Falls in the summer, it was great, once from Niagra over to Nova Scotia in January great music... bad weather... They, (the canadians) are some of the most whiskey drinkin hard partyin frendliest and life loving people i've met on the road so far, i'm glad i've met them
