Product Notes

Super 77 Gives Up 'The Ghost' By Mike Breen The Ghost of Howard is a buoyant, jovial Pop/Punk/Rock album with loads of energy and a silly, domineering sense of humor. Besides the strong lead vocals, muscular harmonies and tight performances, Super 77 succeeds with ambitious arrangements and songwriting that doesn't always stick rigidly to the Pop handbook. The band has more in common with Weezer than any of today's 'Punk Pop' boy bands -- the sublime 'Day in the Sun' and 'Shazam the Destroyer!' (and the goofy 'Hot Dog Song') recall the days before Rivers Cuomo and Co. Became the new Smash Mouth. But 'A Scientist Loves the Creature From the Black Lagoon' and 'Air Clean Damper' are the album's centerpieces, with relatively epic structures showcasing the band's ability to utilize a wide angle lens where other bands only have the vision of a Polaroid Instamatic. As you can tell from the song titles, there's a lot of mirth in 77ville. But there's a smartness underlying even the silliest lyrics. Reading the band's lyric sheet is a bit like watching a really good romantic comedy in the vein of Billy Wilder's The Apartment -- there are plenty of laughs, but there's more at work here than just hot dog jokes. A thicker mix (or perhaps better guitar tones) could have given some of the songs the beefiness they deserve. But, as it stands, Howard is a solid representation of one of Cincinnati's more promising young bands. (Super77.org)
