First impressions of guitarist Chris
Kowanko’s debut album might lean
toward condemnation of his singing,
but don’t listen to first impressions.
His quavering ballads address per
sonal ruts and social issues while in
voking a variety of moods. Through
out the 12 tracks, moods range from
the disdain of the narrator in “Wall
flower” to a violin and cello celebra
tion of the divine in “Love Monster.”
After listening to Kowanko, it’s
not siuprising to learn that he’s re
sponsible for painting the self-por
trait on the album cover.
“I guess it’s a self-portrait in so
much as every work of art is a self
portrait," he said.
If that’s true, then his whole album
is a self-portrait using a varied palate
of softly sung yet hard-cutting lyrics
— lyrics that slap you on the side of
“My House,” a track seemingly
innocent, sounds the horn for the
homeless and brings to surface a self
consciousness most listeners have
“I saw a man face down in the
street/It was cold and wet, well what
would you think?
“I would like to give you more/I
heard it’s what we’re here for, but I
won’t take you back to my house/
Why do 1 hesitate?”
Standing alone, without the music,
Kowanko’s poetical self-portrait of
lyrics would be worth checking out.
As far as the music goes — a superb
piece of art Consider adding it to your
it your collection.

“N.E. 2nd Ave.”
I have to admit, when I put this CD
in, I wasn’t expecting anything at all.
Young Turk? From Miami? “A re
freshingly raw, bluesy approach to
pop music’’? Okay, whatever.
Then, the leadoff song-and first
single, "The Saddest Song (La Di
Da)” jumped out of the speakers and
literally changed my mind in about
two seconds. It’s a great song —
brittle, funky guitar skipping around a
chorus so stupidly catchy you have to
In fact, I have to say that Young
Turk is an unexpectedly great new
band. Its music is sloppy, trashy rock
‘n’ roll that for some reason sounds
really, really good.
I admit thegroup isn’tperfect—at
times they sound a little too much like
Cinderella or one of those late-80’s
glam-blues-metal outfits no (me re
members, but then out comes some
great, drunken melody line or sloppy
guitar lick that reminds you Young
Turk is unique.
A lot of credit goes to the lead
vocalist RhettO’Neil. You never know
what sound is going to come out of his
He goes from nicotine-scratched
mumbles to a playful falsetto, roars
like Tom Waits and screams like Axl
Rose. On Til Be Around,” hearing
him spit out the line "She make a
libby, libby chicken gumbo soup in
the kitchen” is reason enough to buy
"N.E. 2nd Ave.”
Of course, there’s plenty of other
reasons, too. Young Turk doesn’t re
ally do anything that hasn’t been done
before, but its bluesy, rouglfstyle still
sounds like no one else.
