Review from The
Noise, February, 2003:
How The Other Half Lives
When I first saw The Crybabies, I described them
as Gram Parsons meets The Flamin' Groovies. As I listen to their
CD, I feel that this description holds up. Perhaps you remember
Artie Sneiderman as the frontman for dance meisters, The Belmondos.
Moreover, guitarist, Steve Aquino is Lyres' loss and The Crybabies'
gain. Sneiderman and Aquino add their powerful, pop tinged rock
'n' roll compositions to impeccably chosen covers like the Everlys'
"Man With Money" and the Lee Hazelwood's "These
Boots Are Made For Walking." Three other covers that are
among my favorites on the CD are "I Wonder" from the
sadly unrated Gants, Mississippi's answer to The Beatles, the
Keith Richards/ Andrew Loog Oldman "Blue Turns To Grey,"
and The Flamin' Groovies' Cyril Jordan/ Chris Wilson heartbreaking
stunner, "I'll Cry Alone." "Other Half" is
the title track and one of the most intense tracks, creating a
nice foil for the poppier numbers. The slashing power chords and
the wailing harp underscore the fury of the lyric, which is a
basic piss off to squares. Sneiderman makes "You Don't Care"
his own with his soulful reading. "It's So Funny" has
the jingle jangle, ringing 12-string guitar feel. The Crybabies
have picked up the Byrds/ Groovies torch, writing and performing
better, ballsier "Needles And Pins" for the new millennium.
This is my pick for area disc of 2002. (Nancy Neon)
Read John O'Neill's cool
review in the San Francisco Bay Guardian
Blasting out right on the first track
with vocal meister Artie Sneiderman, the Crybabies cover the Everly
Brothers "Man With Money" like they're on speed - and
we're right along for the ride. Along with sidekick Steve Aquino,
who Mr. Airplane Man accurately dubbed the "guitar priest
of the bleeding heart", Artie has crafted 10 garage masterpieces
for the kids. "See Saw", "Other Half", "Nympho"??
Other so-called "garage" bands wish they could write
songs like this. Worcester's best-undiscovered garage combo.
