Peel the Sun
The Help Desk infuses the pulp of pop with the essence of soul, rock, blues, and jazz in a tornado of hooks and blitzkrieg of harmonies, reclaiming pop from the basement of guilty pleasure. With the rhythmic sense of the dustiest Motown record; gritty guitars that cut solos like Ginsu; plush harmonies that tuck you in at night; and lead vocals richly reminding the listener how good a marriage of melody and meaning can be. This isn't just pop music...it's diversapop! ERIK WIDMARK: vocals, guitars. PAUL GONGOLA: guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, vocals with GEORGE BALOGI: sound effects, backing vocals, percussion, engineering JERRY KING: drums DAVONNA THOMAS: backing vocals.
