“THE CONNECTION GETS IT!” - Steven Van Zandt, The Underground Garage
Heralded by rock pioneer, visionary, and Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, Championed by Little Steven Van Zandt, consistent airplay on Sirius XM’s The Underground Garage including many Coolest Songs In The World, one would suggest that New England’s newest hit-makers The Connection are on a roll... Channeling equal parts early Beatles, The Kinks, Paul Collins Beat, The Romantics, Ramones, and The Knack, down and dirty 60’s garage rock meeting the swagger of The Rolling Stones, The Connection grabs hold of the listener at first hook and either throttles you or sends you to the dance floor begging for more.
Spending several weeks writing and recording, including a song writing session with punk rock pioneer and founder of NYC legends The Dictators Andy Shernoff. New England’s newest hit-makers are at it once again, churning out pure and honest, true to form rock n’ roll including; their jangly tongue-in-cheek holiday anthems from “Money, Honey, Baby” to the bubble gum sing-a-long “West Coast” and bringing it all back home with the spirit of holiday “I Feel Fine (It’s Christmas Time)” co-written with Andy Shernoff. The Connection’s hit song catalog including bridges the gap between Brit Pop, Bubble Gum, Garage Rock, and raw energy punk with Ramones like hooks and Real Kids raw energy. I am sure every good little rock n roller will be wanting Christmas Collection crossed off Santa’s list when he comes rolling through town this Holiday Season, Cheers!!
