Louisville's Brightest Pop Hope

Come, We Go (ear X-tacy)

By Brent Starkey

This, I assume, is the advance CD of the new Pennies LP. I say that because it came to me with nothing - no artwork, no song list, no one-sheet . . . . nothing. Just a CD. with the words "The Pennies: `Come, We Go'" written on it in magic marker. So, with that in mind, what we have here are nine songs that fall as far from the "Louisville TM. sound" as possible (and that's a good thing!).

This CD. sounds like a major label release (Hell, it might be), excellent playing . . . cool songs . . . .great vocals . . .I like it!! The Pennies have as much to do with early Bowie (maybe "Hunky Dory" updated to the 90's) as the Pixies, so now I'm hooked. I particularly like the 2nd, 6th and 7th songs (whatever they may be called).

Get this before everbody else tells you you should and get on the ground floor of Louisville's brightest pop hope

Ladies & Gentlemen, the fabulous PENNIES!!!
