(Hard Rock) “Buffalo Rockers For Life 2007,” Various Artists, Illumina Records
-Syracuse Rock Bands Brace and Caroline Blue contributed songs for a good cause out of Buffalo. The motto for the Ground Control Drunk Driving Prevention Campaign is “Saving Lives…one song at a time.”
-Brace and Caroline Blue join the Buffalo-area bands on the 19-song collection that’s spirited and full of both power and hooks.
-Singer Jim Muleane, guitarist Darin Scott, bassist Kevin Rood and drummer Angel Rivera of Brace rip it up on their hard-edged rocker “Fist of Job.” Scott points out that it’s cut #13. Good luck this time.
-Guitarist-singer Wayne W. Johnson, bassist Johnny Sniper and drummer Mike Merrifield of Caroline Blue get their angst out on “Slave to the Hourglass.:
-The CD also provides a hearty introduction to Buffalo’s best, including Lift, Bearthur and The Shakin’ Bones.
-Ground Control has released compilation CDs featuring groups from Chicago and New York City. Brace and Caroline Blue are certainly in good company.
