Johnny De Courcy, Woolworm, BLOOOM

Sat. March 22nd 2014 7:30 - 11pm The Biltmore Cabaret (No Minors) 7:30 - 11pm
" Johnny de Courcy and the Death Rangers’ self-titled album skips open with “Panoramic View”, a song that blows the sticky sweet bubbles laced with gasoline that cover their music. The band has a blown out rock ‘n’ roll flair providing momentum for their inclination towards folk-punk and legendary storytelling. De Courcy’s deliberately enunciated lyrics give him the gravity of a narrator, describing the life he’s witnessed with a sympathetic urgency. His words emphasize individuality and uncertainty, recalling the feeling of being a teenager playing rock star in front of the mirror while waiting for the moment of comeuppance. There’s a vulnerability here that’s compelling, strange and completely charming." - Weird Canada

"Comparing Woolworm to other bands is very much like smashing an octagonal peg into a heptagonal hole. That’s why, says frontman Giles Roy, they decided to define their music under the heading of “blanket rock.”

But what does that even mean?

“When you hear the term blanket rock, you can imagine what that’s going to sound like,” said Roy. “I just wanted to make a name for our sound that kind of summarizes it.”" - BeatRoute
