The resulting album, This Is A Radio Reply, lives up to its name in the fullest- ten tight, concise rock and roll songs filled with incredible hooks, bittersweet lyrics and a certain sense of soul that has been missing in modern rock for quite some time.
'Even though this was pretty much a studio thing, I wanted to get the band to play some shows so we would know what to shoot for when we recorded' Ryan tells us. For the now-legendary live act, bassist Jeff Allen (from Duncan Sheik's band) was called in (Allen also contributed bass on the track "Butterfly"). The concept clearly worked- This Is A Radio Reply is loaded with explosive performances from all involved.
Precise and melodic, Raw Deluxe has managed to bring back the old-school flavor of rock and roll without smacking of nostalgia. With This Is A Radio Reply, they may have written the most sophisticated punk record ever.
