    PALOOKA

    Pop

    PALOOKA is big thick two guitar rock the way God intended it. Singer Paul Passarelli belts out melody lines full of emotion and purpose with tenacity. Chris Quinn and Glen Logan trade flurries of devastating and searing guitar punches reminiscent of a barroom brawl. All of which sits on the rock solid pounding foundation built on the talents of Howard Binner on bass and the percussive mauler Jason Reavis on drums.

    PALOOKA brings together musicians who have been haunting the Seattle scene from the pre grunge days (yes there was a pre grunge Seattle music scene) to present. PALOOKA is made up by former members of Overlord, Bible Stud, Boss Martians, Razrez, SGM, Bottle of Smoke, West Section Line, Debutant, Born Naked, Lipstick, October and Kingmother.  Paul Passarelli also sings in 70 Proof and for the last decade he has sung for Mike McCready’s Flight to Mars annual Crohn's benefit shows.

    Combined with their past projects and experience PALOOKA also sites influences ranging from Elton John and Louis Armstrong to Bowie/Ronson, KISS, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Cult, The Ramones, The Rolling Stones, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Hanoi Rocks, Smack and many more. Topped off by the obvious Evel Knievel hero worship that asserts itself from their younger days as demonstrated by the What’s Wrong With Wanting Everything album cover photo we start to get a glimpse where PALOOKA’s contemporary take on Hard Rock/Alternative music full of honest emotion and grit comes from.

    PALOOKA’s, CD What's Wrong With Wanting Everything was released on June 28th 2011 and runs from the gambit from heavy and loudly extroverted at times to subdued, self-critical and introspective. Not afraid of guitar solos, or quite acoustics the musical pallet here ranges from hard rock with metal tinged fury to something approaching alternative and at times even bluesy. Songs on this album deal with subjects ranging from larger social commentary with songs like Ugly American, and Dime Store Jesus, to the loss of a close friend and brutal self-examination on Sun Will Rise, and Golden Boy, to a gratuitous pursuit of life in the adrenaline fueled moment on the title track. The first run of the CD sold out within a little over a month.

    PALOOKA released a 2 song 7 inch vinyl single on August 27th 2013 featuring the song She's Speed.  Songs from the What's Wrong With Wanting Everything album and the She’s Speed single have been featured on KISW, Seattle’s premier rock radio station, other terrestrial radio stations as well as many internet radio stations and podcasts worldwide

    PALOOKA is currently writing and recording new material for an album with an anticipated release date the Fall/Winter of 2014

  • THE GUESSING GAME

    THE GUESSING GAME

    Pop

    Formed in the summer of 2013, THE GUESSING GAME is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time 
    bassist of Duff McKagan's LOADED. “In the summer of 2013, I found myself with some much
    needed time on my hands. I knew it was time to find the right people to finally bring these songs I
    had been writing to life. Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in
    Loaded, it was time for me to get the "other" songs I had been working on out of my head, onto
    tape, and see what happens.”

    Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Kristen
    Ward, Flight To Mars) Keith Ash (Star Anna) and Shawn Zellar(Redneck Girlfriend), Rouse knew
    this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was
    magnificent.”
