Previous Shows


EP - "Keep It Down"

Bastards of Melody specialize in jangly, catchy power-pop influenced by Sixties icons like the Beatles, Hollies, and Byrds. Guitarist Paul Crane's easygoing, boy-next-door vocals evoke Fountain of Wayne's sense of pop whimsy on the wittily self-deprecating "Must Be Stoned." He gets a bit more gritty on the faster-paced "Dead Soldiers" and the band gets eight miles high for the psychedelized freakout "Born To Raise Hell."
- Jim Testa - Jersey Beat

I'm really impressed. My favorite track is Dead Soldiers - of course it's the hardest rockin' track of the EP, but you would have guessed that. My personal opinion is that you guys sound best when you rock out like that. The other stuff is good too, but the harder stuff has more of a commercial Green Day feel, or something. Who knew you could sing?
- Morgan Giles - Columbia Records

The Bastards of Melody is a Hoboken, NJ based power pop band. Their music is loaded with great melodies (obviously), catchy lyrics, and driving guitar. I believe this band will hit the airwaves and the charts in the near future.
- Andy (Crash) Crane - Unemployed and Loving It


Bastards of Melody were at Lovesexy last week and were not only well dressed, but very loud
- Elizabeth Walsh - Hoboken Musician
