We did good again...
Vintage Guitar Magazine June 2011 The Deadlies Meet the Deadlies Self-distributed Though it's song titles imply this is "surf music," James Patrick Regan and the Deadlies boast plenty of other influences. Yes, there is plenty of reverb-drenched guitar from Regan, and bassist Bob St. Laurent and drummer Jim Lang can ride a wave with the best of them, but "Mayhem at Pillar Point" is a straight ahead '60s garage rocker, while "Pig Farm" is a fun country tune with fine bending and twang. " Mojave Dry Run" is a creepy boogie with feedback and other cool guitar sounds. "Teahupo'o" has surf overtones, but it's really just a fine rock instrumental with a funky edge. "B6 Shuffle" is a funky shuffle where Regan's guitar supplies the fuel. There is plenty of surf, "Save the Waves" and "Pier Pressure" are heavy on the feel and have nasty, ultra-hyper guitar work from Regan: notes bounce off the walls. On "Splat!," the boys show a sense of humor to go with their chops; a mash-up of the theme songs from "Banana Splits" and "Batman," it's the perfect mix of rock and surf. While Meet the Deadlies is loaded with fine playing, it's also full of what most rock and roll forgets these days - plain ol' fun! John Heidt

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
