Trans Universal Worldwide
New CD and mp3 release
by $have of Long Beach
Trans Universal Worldwide is a raucous ride on a spaceship of rock. Propelled from the launch by the life force of Icky Soda, the CD transports the listener through a musical galaxy. Taking them from New York to LA, and all the way to a mythical place called Freeman Street.
$have -- a product of Long Beach, has a sound to match the diversity of the subject matter that seems to abound this town of such dynamic extremes...
Feel the pain of a dejected sportsman in Rival Bowler.
Take a voyeuristic glance into the surreal world of Eight Ladies Early 90's...
Become Saint Nicholas and Handle The Messiah as you exploit the holidays in Full Commercial Xxxmas...
The Buddy Holly -like bounce of Mr. Politician is fun while the words express that promises can only be fulfilled from within...
This CD comes complete with a 8 page booklet of amazing artwork by Johnny Jones complete with all lyrics...
Cornblasta is a vocalist of exceptional talent, his infectious melodies and hilarious lyrics will have you singing out loud...
Dave Shea has a unique guitar style, the solos melodic and rocking, his rhythms smooth and furious. He is a monolith on stage and contributes greatly to $have's signature sound. Dave Shea holds in high regard the guitar work of punk superheroes The Descendents.
The searing guitar solos of Elder D invoke the power of Angus Young, fluidly melding and coloring the compositions.
$haves amazing drummer Heavy Doodie will get you amped like Stewart Copeland posessed by John Bonham...
With Fever on bass, the CD has Urge - ency without Overkill. He drives the songs and slathers grease all over the heavy groovin number One Idea.
"Trans Universal is the only CD I have been listening to lately" - Billy Blaze
Shave drives a rock machine
Reviewer: Mark E. Waterbury
Shave - Trans Universal Worldwide Headchange - CD0027 Long Beach, CA's five piece rock act Shave drives a rock machine with brash vocals, jangly guitars and pounding rhythms. You have a retro vibe ala more aggressive Bowie, jolted with an electric punkiness nodding towards Social D. Sardonic vocals add a further dimension, particularly in songs like "Rival Bowler" and "Eight Ladies Early 90's." Raucous and refreshing rock with some killer guitar solos, too.
