Suckershot delivers a knockout Oshawa - August, 2006 - From the powerful opening riffs of Walk In My Shoes, the first song on Suckershot's debut CD, Demolition, there's no mistaking this is a hard-core rock and roll band. Demolition contains a collection of influences ranging from Ozzy,to Pink Floyd. All of these influences line up to deliver the distinctive Suckershot sound. Suckershot consists of three Oshawa musicians - singer/guitarist Jay Abbott, drummer John Owens bassist Dan Bromell. So far, the band has sold 1349 copies of Demolition -following their CD release party on June 17 2005 - and they've developed a large and loyal fan base around the world. The breakout song on the album, according to fans, is Leave Me Alone a song Jay Abbott wrote on a rainy day. Leave Me Alone was recently featured on Matt Diamond's The New Rock at Nine show, on 94.9 FM, The Rock. Suckershot has also been awarded Best Rock Recording 2006 by the Durham Region Music Society for their 2006 release Gone away to California to be alone. It's no surprise that Suckershot is making an impression on rock music fans in Durham and abroad. The powerful compositions on Demolition and Gone Away To California to be alone can grab you, suck you in and move you, especially during the some of the album's more pensive moments. Suckershot's songs are diverse, intricate, often reflective and always thought provoking; from the first line of Walk in My Shoes - 'Why don't you take a walk in my shoes, you'd be singing the blues' - to the last line of Nothing Left - 'I must confess, there's no more room for this.' It's obvious that Suckershot possesses pure determination and unique musical talent, and there is no doubt they will find themselves sitting at the top of the rock world someday.
