How is it that with only five strings The Presidents Of The United States Of America sound harder than fully-stringed, two-guitar bands? Could it be that by stripping down their instruments, and raising the "no frills" quotient, The Presidents are getting back to the elements that made rock and roll rock in the first place?
Having modified the bass to two strings and the guitar to only three, The Presidents are about as gut level as you can get. The irresistable riffing and "meowing" vocals on "Kitty" show that this is a band with power to spare. Bassist Chris Ballew's writing is diverse and catchy, and propels The Presidents through roaring originals that they obviously love to play. "Lump" has a ferocious pop kick and sing-along appeal, rivaled only by the gnarly, funky edge of "Boll Weevil."
The rest of the album is rich and rhythmically appealing, and makes you think that maybe the lack of strings makes for a more compact sound. THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a winning debut displaying humor and honest, no-frills rock and roll; and is evidence that this band's five strings are more fun than most six-string guitar attacks

Previews

Q (10/96, p.185) - 3 Stars - Good - "A very obvious, and entirely necessary, antidote to the furrowed-brow miserabilism of grunge....Far less irritating than Green Day, they're nevertheless cut from the same faded denim: the loose rhythms of generic alternative rock..."
NME (Magazine) (11/4/95, p.48) - 7 (out of 10) - "...these Seattle funk-popsters are answering Dave Grohl's call to put some fun back into the US underground....You'll think 'Chili Peppers mud-wrestling Weezer. You'll think Faith No More playing Junior Scrabble with They Might Be Giants..."
