Speaking Canaries music CDs Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if Eddie Van Halen grew up on punk rock, and finally decided to handle Van Halen's vocal chores himself? The weirded-out group The(e) Speaking Canaries thinks it's a wonderful idea to morph Eddie's heavy metal guitar heroics with the classic guitar gear that Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis insists on using. And it's a good thing they conducted this experiment, because the finished result is a new and totally fresh approach to alternative rock. Instead of re-writing Van Halen songs like all of those bad hair-metal bands from the 1980s tried to do, The(e) Speaking Canaries incorporate actual V.H. songs into their own spaced-out originals (with many stretching far beyond the five-minute mark). For example, the near 10-minute long "Hall of Force/Gone Bad/So Glad/Reprise" combines a stomping Speaking Canaries composition with a perfect, note-for-note rendition of V.H.'s overlooked classic "Girl Gone Bad" (ever the perfectionists, they even insert a cover of Cream's "I'm So Glad" at the end, just as Van Halen did on their last two tours with David Lee Roth). Other standout tracks are the parading opener, "Houses and Houses of Perfectness," and the pretty "Guitar Strings for a Holocaust." If you never got into alternative music because you felt the "technicality" of the players wasn't up to snuff, chances are The(e) Speaking Canaries will finally convert you. [Note: the group later re-recorded this double album and issued it under the same title, but as a "lo-fi" edition (on Mind Cure Records).] ~ Greg Prato The Speaking Canaries: Damon Che (guitar); Karl Hendricks (bass); Noah Leger (drums).

Speaking Canaries discography The Speaking Canaries really nail their Van Halen-goes-math rock sound on Get Out Alive: The Last Type Story. There are only nine songs here, including three instrumentals and a bonus number that starts about six minutes into the final track. But the album strikes a nice balance between pop accessibility and indie rock abrasiveness, and the songs are generally melodic and well constructed (the band also created a limited-edition, mail-order-only CD-R with longer versions of some songs for those who want more excess). Speaking Canaries have developed the knack for pretty melodies, slow interludes, and false stops, as well as sputtering guitar noise that keeps things from getting too soft, and ...
