Disappointed By Candy












Disappointed By Candy

Have you ever been disappointed by candy? Where you expected candy to taste a certain way and you were let down? And speaking of candy, the other day my son gave me some Bertie Botts, the very unique flavored jelly beans like the ones in the Harry Potter films. When I say unique, I mean flavors like vomit, earwax, earthworm, grass, soap, and sardines. And man do they live up to the flavors! Blecch! Anyway, where am I going with this? I was thinking of the name of this band called Disappointed By Candy. I wonder if they had a traumatic experience with candy (like I did with Bertie Botts) that scarred them permanently, thus leading to the name of their band. All kidding aside, they did find a catchy name for their band, don't you agree? So the next thought in your head is probably, "Yeah their name is catchy, but how the hell is their music???" Sometimes I notice that bands will use a real witty name to make up for the lack of creativity in their music. That's not the case with these guys. How do I know? I have in my possession an advanced copy of their new CD. The band consists of Gabe Ruschival and Jeremy Lutito, who also happen to play with Jars Of Clay on tour sometimes. Their musical experience and influences displayed on the album show their appreciation for good sounds. Not settling for mediocrity, they combine multiple styles (including a nice 80's influence) while retaining a consistent sound throughout. A pretty damn good album by this up and coming band. Look out for their new release soon. Now if I could just figure out the meaning behind their name...
