All Kindsa Worry
Here is what some press folks think: Citing among their influences groups such as the Band and the Rolling Stones, the bio of Sticky points to the style of music you can expect. And that sound rocks as much as it rolls, a blues-based rock that's folky enough to be accessible, but still sharp enough to cut you. Think Black Crowes without the strutting and pretentiousness, and you'll be close. Spiraling guitar driven melodies (that run the gamut between R.E.M., Dylan, Cheap Trick and The Dictators) propelled by sterling six string work, smashing drums and pumping bass lines, fused to a vocal confidence that's second-to-none, is what the band Sticky offers up on their buzzing debut disc All Kindsa Worry. Featuring singer-guitarist Michael Press, guitarist Jonas Kahn and bassist Jeremy Curtis, the treatening threesome welcomes drum tracks from folks like Booth Hardy Ducky Carlisle and Dave Westner to round out their razor sharp sound. All three members of Sticky contribute to the song writing process, making for a formidable force of clamorous ideas and sounds. The result is an irresistible, highly infectious blend of punk, pop, and rock & roll that only a band from Boston could be capable of. Following in the post-punk footsteps of beloved Boston groups like The Rings, The Neighborhoods and the Nervous Eaters, Sticky stakes out their destenty and takes no prisioners on Alll Kindsa Worry with radio classics like the infiltrating 'Wirey Frame,' the reckless drive of 'He Got You,' and the freewheelin' thump of 'Motorcycle.' If their live show resembles anything of this disc, Sticky could very well be the next big thing from Boston. Good stuff! Sticky, ''All Kindsa Worry,' All three members of Sticky -- Jeremy Curtis, Michael Press, and Jonas Kahn -- switch off on multiple instruments and forge an ever-shifting sound that never fails to engage. They move from pulsating garage-rock with big, barking guitar chords to artful, Neil Young-ish folk-rock. There's plenty of romantic angst in songs such as ''He Got You' and ''Lupita,' but the core of this album is just plain and simple rock 'n roll. Band Bio: The members of STICKY have spent the last 7 years touring and recording in the trenches of the underground music scene. Together it's members have cultivated a unique brand of rock&roll. In chemistry balance is everything; and that's whet we have here with Sticky. With Jeremy Curtis touring as a hired gun, Michael Press traveling and hustling merch for major acts like Willie Nelson,and Jonas Kahn slinging his guitar at gigs and studio sessions. The three members who compose this group are spontaneous wander-lusting thrill seeking types that have seen every side of this complex business we call The Music Industry. Established in the year 2000, Sticky was forged out of necessity. Michael and Jeremy were in the throws of running a nightclub in Killington, Vermont and were constantly writing songs about their trials and tribulations concerning anything from fatigue to heartache, and abuse of all kinds. Jonas Kahn entered the scene and helped shape these ideas and sketches into well-crafted songs. From there the three formed a bond that is nothing short of a brotherhood and have made it a mission to spread the songs to all. STICKY currently calls Boston home.
