REVIEWS

New Tims - Phoenix 28/06/2018

16 Eyes features Reeder on drums as well, and is pure garage rock. Joining Reeder in 16 Eyes is bassist Orin Portnoy and guitarists Frank Labor and Steve Ostrov. Look is the band's first full-length and is on Area Pirata Records out of Pisa, Italy. Everybody shares in the vocals, which works for the most part, although not everyone seems to be comfortable or confident behind the mic. Look could easily have come out of the '60s garage rock scene with strong nods toward The Who (especially as Reeder channels Keith Moon on this one repeatedly, and that's a good thing) and the Kinks. Killer stuff.

THEE PSYCHEDELICATESSEN 10/07/2018

Outta Phoenix but forged in the Garage /Punk/ Psych/ Mod scenes of New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Cincinnati , The 16 Eyes are new group comprised of Garage Rock veterans whose musical CV includes bands such as The Outta Place, The Optic Nerve, The Primeval Unknown, The Automatic Erasers, Odds & Sods, The Lone Wolves, The Tickets, Labor Party, Battered Suitcases, Jeff Dahl Band, 8Five Kalidocolor, Doc & The Pods, The Cybermen, The Freaks of Nature, The Primate 5, Sinister Six and The Glory Holes. Released on Area Pirata Records, the band's debut record, Look, gathers together 13 sharp originals along with their frantic version of the much covered Eddie Holland song 'Leaving Here' and it's a nuclear blast of British Beat/R&B influences that channels the amphetamine charged sound of The Who, The Kinks and The Yardbirds rippin' it up down in the Soho clubs during the mid 60s. We know there are hundreds of bands that have tapped into the sound of the post-Mod, pre-Psychedelic Freakbeat era of British music, but The 16 Eyes just seem to do it better than most. Short and sweet sounds abound with most of the 14 tracks clocking in around the two minute mark, standard time for a Freakbeat classic, as The 16 Eyes strip their songs down to a pure 60s essence. For fans of the genre this record well worth your time, check it out here............



Avec un tel pédigrée (The Outta Place, Optic Nerve, Jeff Dahl Band, Sinister Six, The Cybermen, Odds & Sods, The Lone Wolves pour vraiment ne citer que les plus connus mais ils ont tous les 4 joué dans pléthore de groupes Garage / Mod / Psych Punk depuis presque 4 décennies) je m'attendais à du tout bon. Et c'est bien le cas !
Un album double dose avec des titres hyper catchy qui vous explosent à la gueule dès la première écoute, et, un ensemble de 14 chansons qui constitue un album varié et cependant homogène qui s'écoute, se réécoute et se révèle petit à petit !
Si vous n'écoutez que superficiellement vous aurez l'impression d'être tombé sur un disque de Garage Punk de haute gamme. Mais si vous allez plus loin vous découvrirez que ces chansons regorgent d'influences Mod / Freakbeat mais aussi qu'on entend ici et là du Wild Rock'n'Roll / Pré Punk / Proto Grunge... Par endroit on oscille entre Heavy et Pop 60's... C'est souvent tendu (la basse très Mod) ça arrache parfois mais c'est tellement varié et si bien exécuté qu'on se régale sur toute la longueur et qu'on se ressert de ce cocktail parfaitement équilibré !
