Walk Fast Head Down
'Lots of flash, some simple, solid production, and a gaggle of smashing guitar riffs --- I think they used to call this power pop'! John Borack, Amplifier Magazine '... Power pop with an edge. Cool tunes when you want to crank up the amps!' Eric Sorensen, Fufkin.com 'Walk Fast...Head Down is a polished, passionate and powerful debut from these rocking power poppers ... Gary Glauber, PopMatters 'KILLER! Tell the fans we'll be spinning Cyclones' Craig Leve / Snap, Crackle, POP! KWVA, Eugene OR Cyclones is a Chicago power-pop trio. After playing in several bands (Throck Morton, Stretch Velvet) throughout the 90's, Steve Gatland formed Cyclones in 2000 as a way to create the straight-ahead guitar power pop made famous by bands like the early Replacements, Material Issue, Cheap Trick, Guided By Voices, and Descendents. The stripped-down sound, strong vocal hooks, locked-in back beat, and over-driven guitars distance Cyclones from the mainstream bubble gum pop of today. 'Cornerstones of any good power pop tune are a catchy melody, smart lyrics, and hooky instrumental riffs ... (Cyclones...) musical optimism is infectious -- inducing one to join in on the choruses!'
