Recommended: Baby Scream
#481: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! One of the great pleasures of running ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) is that, from time to time, talented independent musicians and artistes influenced by ELO, The Move and/or The Beatles contact me &/or send me their music to have a listen to. Hence, it was a pleasant surprise to be contacted by Juan Pablo Mazzola - an Argentinian singer/songwriter/guitarist based in Germany and front man for Baby Scream the other day.
Juan told KJS/ELOBF earlier this week: "I'm a huge ELO/Beatles fan, and what I do is basically classic power pop!" This is evidenced in the their eponymously titled 2010 album "Baby Scream" and also "Secret Place" (2011). Of the songs that Juan has sent me, Yours Truly KJS can detect Beatles, ELO and T.Rex influences. All of the tracks came over as well constructed songs and were a delight to these particular ears. Of particular note was "Jekyll & Hyde" from "Baby Scream" and "Hit & Run" from "Secret Place". And from what I've heard of Juan's new compositions, the forthcoming new album is going to be well worth the wait. There are several ways to watch, listen and purchase material by Baby Scream so why not peruse these links to their web sites thus:
