NEW SONGS: Pete Van Dyk and the Second Hand Band - "Shake Me" 3-song 7" (Free download)
Pete Van Dyk and the Second Hand Band is a blues-based garage rock outfit from Burlington, Ontario. We've featured them before (WYMA post here), and we still find the same things to like about their sound - only this time, more songs and a second lead vocalist show a bit more range. The band is Scott Carruthers on drums and vocals, Pete Van Dyk on vocals and guitar, J.D. Norwood on bass and vocals and Ed Van Dyk on lead guitar. On the first track, Pete's guttural howl delivers the vocals, and Ed plays a strong lead and a scorching solo over the last minute or so.
"Plan B" is a bit more urgent, and British Invasion/punk-oriented, and features Carruthers on vocals:
"To The Night" is Van Dyk on lead vocal again, and it's a Stonesy bit of blues rock with some country touches and some really good lead guitar work:
You can download it free, or buy a 7" at their website.
