about

This deluxe edition features an additional 3 bonus tracks.

"The sound of this band has evolved.....the songwriting is more refined and the instrumental work more meticulous...."Stand and Deliver" mixes psychedelic vocals and ringing guitar rhythms that reminds me a little of U2 mixed with The Happy Mondays....."Where is The Sun?" is a shimmering gem with a rich harmonic chorus...If you're a bit nostalgic for those 80's jangle hooks of The Mighty Lemon Drops, The Cure and Psychedelic Furs you get a real gift with several tracks like the hook-filled "Fire and Ice", "Can You Feel?" and "I Wasn't Born Yesterday." - Powerpopaholic

"While this Seattle’s band’s 2008 disc (“Sunny Days Ahead”) offered a straight-up garage rock meets classic power pop vibe, Fire & Ice is a much broader musical affair. Bolstered by big full-bodied production, and textured well-crafted instrumentation, Fire & Ice embraces everything from Britpop, to psychedelia, to the boisterous, driving 80s jangle of bands like the Hoodoo Gurus and Stone Roses. Main man James Hall’s attention to detail is evident on nearly all the album’s 10 tracks – the hooks are immediate and engaging and showcase Hall’s penchant for mining the best of the pop music spectrum and putting it all together for a stellar musical concoction. RIYL: Hoodoo Gurus, U2, Stone Roses, The Killers" - Jeff Shelton, KSCU FM

"...intensely infectious tracks like "Stand and Deliver", "Touch the Sky", and the title track. "Can You Feel?" is a beautiful mid-tempo number that is one of my favorites on the CD. After this comes the cooler part of "Fire and Ice", but things heat back up again at the close with great rockers like "Where Is The Sun?" and the harmonica-laced party closer, "You Can't Say No", which reminds me of The Soup Dragons....Vocalist and chief songwriter James Hall, which is a near dead ringer for Dave Faulkner of The Hoodoo Gurus, sounds better than ever...the first four songs on "Fire and Ice" constitute the brightest, most enjoyable 15 minute block the band has recorded to date." - BMF

Shake Some Action! Seattle, Washington

“Shake Some Action! make sun-kissed Rickenbacker-rock that continues the tradition of the great power pop forbearers like the Kinks and Big Star, along with the jangle pop pioneers of the ‘80s like R.E.M. and the Feelies. Their sound takes their influences’ jangly past and brings it into a caffeinated now, with high energy records and performances.” Jingle Punks Magazine ... more
