ROCK: Modern Rock, POP: Power Pop
What they say: The East Bay Express called their first CD Little Red Toy "a big party in itself!" that is "upbeat, jovial party-till-dawn material." Two years later, the Blunt Truth have refined their sound while keeping their six-person lineup the same.
Now, the Blunt Truth are a guaranteed boogie band, able to loosen the butts from the seats.
Unlike many live bands, however, the Blunt Truth have always focused on the Song, with the melodies, and lyrics made to stick in your mind long after the show has ended.
The Hype: BLuNT TRuTH, San Francisco's ultimate postmodern rock and roll experience.
There are oh-so-many styles of music nowadays...
but when you hanker for gritty-yet-pretty rock and roll, then turn to the Truth! Finely crafted songs, two outstanding & head-turning lead singers, musicians who know what they hell they're doing and can put energy, feeling, and muscle behind every note, and a show that's guaranteed to entertain.
The History: Tõk Thompson, from Alaska (the name is Alaskan Native), came to the Bay Area in 1989 after graduating from Harvard University and formed the art-rock band Mighty Bushmen with Jeff Montana and Greg Kalifornia.
After a semi-successful five-year stint, the project was abandoned, and Tok drifted to Ireland, where he took up street-singing and working on new material.
He returned in 1996 and formed the first line-up of the Blunt.
The current lineup solidified in 1998, and now features returning ex-Mighty Bushmen Jeff Montana on electric guitar and Greg Kalifornia (who had been drafted into local Rockabilly vets the Tombstones) on drums, along with "Bloody" Scott Porter on keys, Laura Von (of Superbooty fame) on vocals, and Blazin' Billy Wilde (Hellbilly's, Tombstones) on the thumping bass.
The Blunt Truth have played in most of the clubs in the San Francisco Bay, and, and continue putting on sweaty, fun shows.
If you're in town, come on down!
