Les Zaldor of Insomnia Radio recently interviewed my favorited band, THE TRANSFER (click on the logo at right to hear the interview, complete with three new songs). Fuck Yeah. You have heard their music all over Sigler podcast novels, including "Down With Everything" that was the theme music for EARTHCORE.
Yes, I used to play bass for these guys. They have a new singer, but the band still has my friends Justin Carls, Ted Krisko, Steve Poirier and Chris Larson (who replaced me after I replaced him -- he's the original bad-ass bassist). I frickin' love these guys.
The new tunes have operatic intensity typical the layered songwriting style of Carls. Like previous songs, THE TRANSFER's new tunes make you alternate between wanting to wave your hands side to side in arena-rock unison and breaking teeth with a rusty tire iron. Jack Miles is an excellent new singer. He replaces Steve Tutor, who is and will always be my favorite lead singer of all time.
