With my latest listening time I found a band called The Fabrockators, with a couple of albums in hand one called “Just a Fabrockation” and another called “Party You Give” the band has a heavy feel at first listen. As you hear more you kind of get the sense of what they are about. The first cut called “Traveling” the band has a dirty rock kind of punk and rock all wound together and has something that I can’t place the finger on, yet.. As I listened the next track called “Don’t Bring Me Down” the band brings in a sound that has classic rock but with a strange twist. The rhythm section is all together and the song kind of reminded me of my fraternity days of college, where the band played as we partied on and on. The next song called “Hot Rod” the band continues with the sound of heaviness and with a twist of rebel rock. The next song called “Party You Give” is one of those songs that has speed and the musicality elevates you as you listen. “Lightning, Rain and Thunder” a solid song that brings in the element of classic rock and with a sound that ushers in the late sixties feel to it. With this song the band begins to evolve in what you are listening to. With the next song called “Any Kind Of Thrill” the band rebel rock flows through and once again you hear the psychedelic and almost acid feel to their music. As I strolled through the album the next track called “Moving North” brought in the horn section and the rhythm and the song has a catchy flavor to it and lends it’s good name to the name of the album “Party You Give” The next track called “Winter’s Coming” in a strange way kind of resembled early Grateful Dead, but the Craig Pavone leads the band and keeps up the party flare rolling through the arteries of the song assortment and continues to have that party feel to it. The band has a bluesy feel to it at times and the song “Got My Freedom” has a few hints of blues riffs woven into it, and as I listened I still heard some influences of late sixties psychedelic music scene and is quite interesting in a band of today. The band has sound that is fueled by heavy metal add in a little punk and acid rock of the 60’s music and you’ll find this band, The Fabrockators. the last song on this album is called “The Sin” continues to have that feel to it of dark but melodic rock of the past, but remains consistent with the feel and body of the rest of the album. As I listened to the album a couple of times I realized that The Fabrockators are in a class of their own, they make music that is uniquely theirs and share a bit and hints of the psychedelic sixties music and is nice to have a band that doesn’t sound like everyone else. All in all the album has a good feel to it and one would have to be in a certain frame of mind to truly absorb their musicality. I feel that they have a sound that needs to be heard and to be honest have your other classic rock and Jimi Hendrix and magic mushrooms ready for the true experience. I thank all the band members of their contribution to the music scene and their entertaining and thought provoking and unique and original music.
