Bobby Quick And The Speeds Of Sound 2014

Review by David Bowling


Bobby Quick, formally the singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the alternative rock band Zero Parade, has just issued a six-song EP (or short album if you will), under the title Bobby Quick And The Speeds Of Sound.

His sound is a little more melodic than that of his former band but it still has a raw, down to earth nature to it.

“Knock Knocker” is is emblematic of his sound. Jangly guitar, ominous melody, rough vocal, and an energetic presentation all add up to a creative and excellent track. If you are so inclined, check out the video to the song.  Joey Molland of Badfinger fame joins in on “Different Kind of House,” which moves the sound in a pop direction.

The six tracks are well-crafted modern day alternative rock with a melodic bent. They provide a taste of his vision and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Mr. Quick.
