Labeled “irresponsibly eclectic” (which is, quite frankly, the coolest compliment, ever), and known for his edgy, line-crossing, bar-raising rock music, Clearwater, Florida’s own, David Alpha, has been making his brand of noise for a long, long time. Been there. Done that.
So long in fact, that not only has he spent time with two other bands (The Fons, and the Dharma Bums), as well as his solo project, but he’s also earned Master’s degrees in English and journalism, taught as a college instructor, functioned as a magazine editor and public information writer for the University of Tampa, and published a bit of short fiction and poetry for the Chicago Sun-Times. He’s the kind of guy who simply can’t shut-up—which coincidentally is also the kind of guy that makes a damn good rock-star.
With impressive projects such as Sacrilege and Rockin’ Roulette in his review, the aptly named Alpha is preparing to unleash his latest sonic scalpel, the ominously titled, Chameleon Wheelhouse, off of which comes the ruggedly grimy number, Universalon.
One part punk, one part garage, all parts angsty-rock’N’roll, the track jumps off like Jim Morrison cut a track with the Ramones. As fuzzy chords shimmy back and forth frantically, like caged animals, Alpha articulates agnostic points with which are damn hard to argue…
“Just where has Jesus gone?
How can a kingdom come?
Will stars now slam upon the unborn?”
Punkers, garage-heads, purists, thinkers, lovers & haters…just listen to this song already.
The Doors meets Ramones
