Do you believe in perfection? Do you believe that nowadays you can find a perfect band? To be honest, I didn’t… until I saw The Keytones live in Caddy’s Diner (Holland). The plan was to go out and fool around with my friends (you know - drink some beer or few, have a chat, maybe dance). The plan worked out well till the English band started to play. For some minutes me and my friends were paralised. Those guys didn’t need a warm-up; they just went on stage and started play with such an ease (in all meanings of this word! No show, no fake “50's America” voices, no tension… just pure fun in a very natural way. I guess you must be thinking now: hey, what does it all have to do with a cd review? And I must tell you - the cd gives the same feeling, only without “moving pictures”. Sure, the band has a long time experience, but they are the only ones who have reached this level of quality. This cd is very special and certainly one of my few favourites. First of all it is very smartly “organised”… it starts and finishes with instrumentals, so it has a beginning and the end. Fast tempo Whooper Snooper (name of the cd is already showing up in the first song… simple, but also makes it kind of unusual) shows the best ability of musicians. And yes, it is real and it already makes you addicted to The Keytones. Even though I have never played properly on any kind of musical instrument, I can bet that it could be a perfect example for other bands how to play right and also communicate with each other. What I like about this cd is that it suprises you all the time. Be ready, the styles of songs are changing so fast that you won’t even have time to catch your breath… doo-wop, rockabilly, jive, rhytm’n’blues… and everything so perfect, you won’t believe your ears.
