about

The Sisters Euclid, teamed up with our friend, John Dickie,
to create an album for now-defunkt, blues label, Northern Blues.
Much thanks to Fred Litwin, the owner of Northern Blues, for taking
a chance with this music.

"This one's for those who like a streak of insanity with their music, which singer-guitarist Kevin Breit can always be counted on to provide. Add gravel-voiced howler John Dickie to Breit's Sisters Euclid Band, and you get rock and jazz and blues and some sort of hairy, hauting sound all mixed together. "Gun" features a reverberating guitar and soulful vocal harmonies. The infectious "Pralene" builds incessantly, courtesy of some joyously noisy percussion. "Too Damn Big" is a yell-athon that's either about life's problems or about a dog that won't get off the couch. Two treats are the loud but tender "Faithfully" and the lush and bouncy "Good Fay". This is a wholly unique album, one without apparent influences. The best lyric is on "Love to Stay, Gotta Go," in which the protagonist sings, 'I would've left you at the altar, if you hadn't turned me down.'
