The Spitfire Nines “Eight” – Album Review
By: Kim Byrd
Delighted to introduce The Spitfire Nines album “Eight”. Montreal home base Tom Foreman (Vocals/Guitars) Mark Charbonneau (Drums and Tavern Hunter!) and Danny Labrecque (Bass). They have made many appearances at the Ye Olde Cock n Bull which is one of the best pubs in Montreal! “What’s Under The Sand” is their first single and is in the making of video production, However it’s been told that the producers from the hit TV series Supernatural is interested in their hit song “Eldorado” and to be played in one of their episodes, if that happens they will also produce a music video for that song as well.
This band seems pretty stoked to continue to move forward and create new songs, and yet still noble enough and dedicated to their fans to also put in the “old” songs such as again “Eldorado” and “Something New”. This alternative rock country band will surely surprise you, listening to the lyrics and guitar solos gives off this ambiance in a sense that it gets you in the mood to have a nice cold beer in a warm welcoming pub with good people and good friends.
Another song on this eight track album such as “Eleventh Hour” is a tribute to Fallen Nils front man Alex Soria. It’s more up beat and kind reminds me of a part in empire records as Renee Zellweger is singing on the roof top… oh yes! The old time fav “Sugarhigh” by Coyote Shivers. It obviously is not the same but nonetheless is probably one of the best songs on the “Eight” album other than “Eldorado”.
Overall this Album “Eight” is worth checking out. If you’re into small venues type bands and good pub music then this is pretty close to it. It’s chill and relaxed but also has its highs in the beat aspect to keep the mood feeling good, and not crying to your friends about your girl or guy problems. Just saying!
