Pit Brothers Band release Rock and Roll album Rosce

The Pit Brothers Band began as a collaboration between two brothers from New York, Eric (guitars/vocals) and David Pitagorsky (Keyboards, vocals). Joined by Hide Omachi on bass and Flaco on drums and vocals they have new album Roscoe on release.

On first listen it comes across as a blend of Tom Petty, Joe Walsh with a bit of John Mellencamp thrown in, really well-played rock and roll. An album which will always be good to listen to and really enjoyable to share with people who would baulk at heavy rock. The opener ‘Modernogamy’ has a great slap bass intro before the keys and guitar join in. ‘Back Door’ has a key-driven arrangement with subtle slide building to a delightful guitar solo which supports the song just right. Best of the bunch is ‘Marley Bug’, with a true Country/Americana feel; train-track rhythm and an accordion giving colour.

‘Prayer For The Dying’ has a bluesy approach. The final track, ‘Untouched’, has another great bass intro before moving into a sort of jazz/rock backing.

This is a very professional band, professionally played and recorded. If you are a fan of the Petty/Walsh style of rock and roll, there is a lot to enjoy.

North East born, South West domiciled music lover - mainly heavy rock & blues but not averse to other genres. I'm fortunate to have retired early & I can now take full advantage of the 40+ years I have spent collecting, listening, watching & playing (badly) & have enjoyed researching how blues in particular has shaped the music we know & love today. Now if only I could get my Strat & Musicman to sound in reality how they do in my head!
