What It Takes
The San Francisco Bay Guardian calls them 'a buckshot of sound...' One of San Francisco's last surviving bands, Radio Noise spans the dial from Rock to Reggae, Ska to Pop. If you can't seem to find much worth listening to on the radio, then you should pick up 'What it Takes.' The band's pedigree speaks for itself. All have spent years in local SF bands and national touring acts. The vibe that comes from years of experience makes the music greater than the sum of it's parts. You can feel it at their live shows, and on this CD. The group's songwriter, Erik Noyes, grew up on the bands of the 80s like the Specials, the English Beat, Echo and the Bunnymen, Elvis Costello, et al. He is a seasoned veteran of such bands and Bad Manners, The Mr. T Experience, Hoodlum Empire and the Mudsharks. All of this experience comes to bear in an explosive sound. Track after track of mile-wide hooks will keep this CD in your rotation for years.
