09.15.05 A period of "adjustment"...

Hey True Believers,

The Evidents is once again undergoing a period of "adjustment" and in the end you, the fans, will reap the benefits. Right now I'll be finishing The Evidents' second CD for your approval and will head right into the next recording project, featuring many guest players from whom I will eventually wean a whole new Evidents! So, stick around for the ride,'cause even I'm gonna be surprised by what I cook up next!!

Indubitably yours,
Mick

01.11.05 EVIDENTS ARE PART OF 12-STEP PROGRAM !
An excerpt from The Set List's "12-Step Program To Local Music Enlightenment"...

"There are more than a few '60s-influenced garage bands around these parts, all of which seem to involve drummer and fashion plate Ken Chiodini, but what makes these guys the local pick of the mod litter is their balance of effervescent pop melodies and buzzing energy. In fact, The Set List isn't the only one who thinks they rock because they placed in the top three in last year's Little Stevie's and Dunkin' Donuts' Rockin' Garage Battle of the Bands in Miami."

Now, on to the news...

The infamous CD - Yes Virginia, there is a second CD. I'm sure by now you were beginning to doubt the product would ever be finished (as were we). Can you believe the boys only have a few bits to record and will be mixing down soon. This project has had A LOT of starts & stops, but we're almost there (2 more miles...). We will keep you up-to-date, so check back often! Thanks for being patient and for giving a shite!

Upcoming shows - We have a couple of interesting shows coming up, so be sure to mark your calendars. Mick, Jeff & Ken will be venturing into uncharted waters on May 1st when they will be playing at the Tampa Two Stroke SleepAway Camp Scooter Rally in Odessa, Fla. Hhhhmmm...beer, rock 'n roll and scooters...all against the backdrop of a boy scout camp...what could go wrong?
Then on June 5th the boys are off to Atlanta to hook up with our old friends The Woggles for a show at The E.A.R.L. So make plans to be in Atlanta that weekend because you don't want to miss this one!

Latest review...

"The Evidents from Orlando, FL bring the sound of '60s garage psychedelia and surf to modern rock n roll. Check Plus recently had a chance to sample their self-titled EP, featuring 4 swingin' tracks from the mind of Mick Crowley and co. The album emanates a certain nostalgic rock vibe starting with the first track, "Without You Now" and keeps it going through to the end. The songs are all super cool and seem like they could almost be appropriate as the background to those classic black & white teen beach movies, but the hints of modern rock influence keep this music from being a total throwback album. The other songs on the album are "All Roads Lead To You", "Inside Outside Upside Down", and "Action Figure". Look out for "Action Figure" on the next Check Plus rock compilation due out in early 2004. The Evidents are always playing in central Florida, so keep your eyes open and get your ass out to some of their shows for a groovy time. -cc."

"This next CD has been out awhile, but I just recently tracked it down by The Evidents who are one of Orlando’s current crop of extremely catchy garage/pop/psych influenced bands. This is the group that former Hatebomb Mick Crowley put together after leaving the ‘Bombs. “The Evidents” is filled with great 60’s inspired tunes like “Without You Now”, “Train”, and “All Roads Lead To You” to the explosive “Inside Outside Upside Down”. They also do a great job covering the killer 60’s tune “You Can’t Make Me” by Miami’s legendary Pretty Things-inspired band The Montells! Even though this CD doesn’t boast a fancy production job, it does have heart, soul and memorable hooks unlike much of today’s music. It’s available directly from the band at their website: www.evidents.cc."

"If you're the kind of person who heard the ragged vitality of the song "BBC" in the first Austin Powers movie, waxed nostalgic for the 1960's you never even knew and thought, "They don't write them like that anymore;" well, they do. The Evidents' self-titled CD evokes the shimmy-shaking of the Yardbirds and the raw heat (and sometimes the drum rolls) of the surf rockin' Ventures. Even the spirit of the Monkees was definitely hanging around while the band was honing its sharp post-punk style (and hone they have, as their live shows get ever better). This isn't to cast The Evidents as imitators or bubble-gum artists. If this is bubble gum, the sugar has definitely been sucked out. While their sound is of that era, their gritty texture and energy are right here, right now. So, you want a new spin on a golden era? Spin this. And just try to keep yourself from dancing."
