“Crawling From The Wreckage Of A Saturday Night,” the debut
single from LET IT ROCK, The Connection’s brand new full-length
LP, is the band’s THIRD “Coolest Song in the World” in under a
year on Little Steven’s Underground Garage. It’s a kick-ass rocker
about a scene we all know very well: Where’s my wallet, where’s my keys? / I can’t understand why I do these things /
My head is pounding my throat is dry / I’m crawling from the wreckage of a Saturday night…
The Underground Garage is also putting LET IT ROCK’s swaggering “Girls In This Town” into heavy rotation, declaring,
“The production on these songs is great; I mean fantastically great. These guys get it.” High praise indeed from the driving
force behind America’s hippest radio station.
The Rolling Stones took their name from a Muddy Waters song. The Connection, New England’s newest hit-makers, have
carried on the tradition, naming the band for a Stones rocker to bring fans across the world a fresh take on the best of the
British Invasion sound. LET IT ROCK features a dozen original Marino/Palmer power-pop/rock gems. From the
breakneck-paced opener, “Wrong Side of 25,” to the seductive melody and breathtakingly cool guitar solo of
Beatles-influenced "She's A Keeper," to the driving, Exile-era power of “Girls In This Town” -- “There’s so many girls in this
town/You can’t let just one hold you down”-- to the infectious harmonies and pure, propulsive beauty of "The Way Love
Should Be," The Connection bring passion, melodic hooks, and more than a few very cool surprises to this rip-roaring rock
& roll record.
Yes, LET IT ROCK recaptures the sheer exuberance of the British Invasion, but make no mistake, The Connection sound
like The Connection and no one else. LET IT ROCK is both familiar and fresh, timeless and new, an album of feel-good,
time-to-dance, original rock & roll of the highest quality. Just a taste of the slide guitar driven screamer, “Thinking About
Leaving,” and you’ll be thinking about leaving LET IT ROCK on the turntable full-time!
