Here’s some new and excellent powerpop/punk. Unattached Strings is an awesome nearly too close to Buzzcocks melody punker that I can’t get enough of. The chorus could be stronger to acompanion the great verse but who am I to complain? Dream Girl is really bad in my opinion. Just too simple and plain. Where’s the hooks?
About their sucky name The Power Chords you can read this at their labels website:”The name â€œThe Power-Chordsâ€ couldnâ€™t be more, or less, ironic.”
One more thing!!! Where’s the lyric sheet? It should be law to include a lyric sheet.

……says singer/guitarist Jon Hammer. â€œBut letâ€™s face it, the kids today need some energy, the kind of energy that was being exerted in the late â€™70s……..”
So let’s rehash music and clothing from 30 years ago instead of trying something new!! Every once in a while one of these retro bands will do something for me but this ain’t one of them. If I was a kid right now in 2007 I’d be looking at these guys the same way I used to scowl at the hippies! Pointless. Pop music is fine–xerox copies of a dead era is pitiful.
Is that Tom Petty on the cover?
Sounds closer to the Fall-Outs on song 2. Meh.
I just got this single in the mail about a week ago. Good stuff.
Ummmmmm…I have asked this question before, but….does this record come with bubblegum???
fuck this band.
This is seo from the power chords. I just googled our old band and found this filth about “fuck you” and whatnot. As a porn again hairy chestnut, I just gotta say that’s pretty fun stuff. Couldn’t be prouder to meet you thank u ^_^
Great site!! We just started one and we added you on our links. Please check out our blogspot, and add us to your excellent site! Thank you!
I like a lot of powerpop, but the vocals can it on this one
their demo song “New Pheromones” is way better. They put on a great show as well.
I’ve seen these dudes play. I give them credit for flying the flag, which is why most of the kiddies seem to like them in our town, but they kinda lack in the tunes area. They rehash the same buzzcocks-esque chord/harmony progressions but don’t add much to it. Singer is a little flat and monotone. I think they have the right idea, just need a little more grit in their step. Shows aren’t anything to write home about in my book. They look good on the cover though. Way to go!
They’re definitely ripe for some lame ass, bigger, record company to snatch up. The same ones that missed out on the Exploding Hearts…at least the EH would have deserved it!
You guys are young, keep it up for a couple more years and I’ll believe you!
i think it’s a great debut from this young band. it’s not easy to play this style of music as brilliant as buzzcocks or the undertones did. so, this is a cool 7″!
I saw these guys play to 20 people at a sushi bar here in Richmond, VA a few months ago. They are the real deal!!! Their new full length, “I Think I’m Gonna…” is killer! I am a jaded old geezer punk who has seen all the greats. These kids are wicked good!
yeah, this band is the best of the best if you enjoy well constructed power pop.
i am still searching this release, but could not find it anywhere. Does someone knows a last chance (mailorders etc.) where to get this record? I also could not find any band contact, the label site seems to be down. Thanks.
Yeah, they are much better live. But they still sound like the free credit report.com band!
