Queued Up: S/T EP

Portland, OR quartet Queued Up name The Who, Thin Lizzy and The Hives as sources of inspiration for their songs. With a nod to the legendary Marquee poster for The Who: maximum power pop.

And that's exactly what they provide during the four songs on their S/T EP. They throw in radio friendly hooks and riffs, all gift wrapped in a Sixties stereo mix. With two guitarists chasing each other around the block , it's up to the rhythm section to lay down a rock solid back beat. Sure, it's all been done before, but these guys are here to entertain - not to go down in history as musical innovators. Buy them a beer when you catch them live. They deserve it.
