âI think everybody should write songs,â says The Sun frontman Chris Burney. With BLAME IT ON THE YOUTH, Burney puts his NOUN where his mouth is. The Ohio quintetâs debut album is a showcase for both his ADJECTIVE rockânâroll and drummer Sam Brownâs ADJECTIVE anthems. Remember the first time you heard ALBUM TITLE, or ALBUM TITLE, or ALBUM TITLE? BLAME IT ON THE YOUTH crackles with a ADJECTIVE, yet familiar buzz.
After two EPs (2003âs ADJECTIVE Love and Death and last yearâs alluring Did Your Mother Tell You?), the bandâvocalist/guitarist Burney, drummer Brown, guitarist Bryan Arendt, bassist Brad Forsblom and keyboardist/guitarist Brad Caulkinsâreveal themselves to be completely twisted pop PLURAL NOUN making a bold, beautiful noise. From the ADJECTIVE frenzy of âIt Must Be Youâ to the ADJECTIVE soul of âRomantic Deathâ to the ADJECTIVE epic âTaking the Lordâs Name in Vein,â BLAME IT ON THE YOUTH is both classicist and forward-looking, unabashed and dissonant, lovelorn and pissed-off.
âWe wanted it to sound like a NOUN,â says Brown. âOur joke is, itâs a song for everyone and an album for no one, because it covers so much NOUN. But maybe thatâs what makes it ADJECTIVE.â
âWeâre a ADJECTIVE band,â Burney offers. âWe come from the tradition of BAND NAME and BAND NAME.â
Born on April Fools Day, Burney grew up in Cleveland, CITY and St. Louis. He played MUSIC GENRE and MUSIC GENRE in high school then at 19 dropped out of Ohio State to VERB the stand-up bass for singer-songwriter Tim Easton. It was both an introduction to the NOUN and an apprenticeship in NOUN; soon Burney was VERB-ing his own stuff, and making demos at the loft of Easton cohorts Jay Bennett and Leroy Bach (Wilco sidemen at the time).
âI was trying to get those PLURAL NOUN out and there was a little bit of interest in me as a NOUN,â Burney says. âBut it didnât really work until this band PAST TENSE VERB together.â
And the band didnât come together until the last possible moment, after Burney, Arendt and Forsblom PAST TENSE VERB across the country, a scheduled L.A. showcase gig their final destination. But no sooner had they got to California than they PAST TENSE VERB their NOUN. Brown, then in MUSIC GENRE heroes New Bomb Turks, flew out to fill the NOUN and never gave it up. Needless to say, the gig went ADVERB. âBasically, Sam had been in the band for AMOUNT OF TIME when we got signed to Warner Brothers,â Burney recalls.
It was the summer of 2001, that heady, hyped-up moment when the BAND NAME were the next big thing. The Sun were never gonna keep their sound in PLACE, or limit it to narrow PLURAL NOUN. âI think from the start we knew better than to just VERB a ADJECTIVE NOUN,â says Brown. âI didnât really have any NOUN in doing that again. We were open to anything. We still are.â
That was apparent from the start. Said MAGAZINE of Love and Death: ââ¦jerks from punkified garage rock to jittery psychedelia to dewy eyed acoustic folk, with songwriting smarts and deft instrumental touches in ample supply. âThe work of a band that wipes its BODY PART with all other bands,â gushed NEWSPAPER.
For BLAME IT ON THE YOUTH, The Sun decided to record with producer/engineer Ben Hillier (Blur, Doves, Clinic, U2) who gave them a NOUN in the finer points of VERB-ing. âBenâs coming from that British tradition of using the studio more as an NOUN,â says Burney. âTheyâre like PLURAL NOUN in lab coats. They VERB everything ADVERB. It was like, two solid years of VERB and introspection, broken into chunks of months and weeks.â
It took so long because the band almost PASTE TENSE VERBâor rather, Burney did, suffering a kind of ADJECTIVE panic attack that stalled the process for AMOUNT OF TIME. By then, Hillier had moved on, so John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Hot Hot Heat) was tapped to VERB the record. But the hiatus proved to be a NOUN for Brown: Thanks to the magic of NOUN, he started to VERB for the first time, and turned out to be ADJECTIVE at it. âItâs completely changed the dynamic of our band,â Brown says. âChris always said, if you guys want to VERB, thatâs great, so it was really nice to find out that he meant it. Iâm still pretty ADVERB with myself that I can do it. Every day I wake up and I wonder, âhmmh, I wonder what kind of NOUN Iâm gonna VERB today.ââ
Among Brownâs contributions are the disjointed, hook-and-falsetto-laden âJustice,â which he says was meant to be âthe ultimate MUSICAL GENRE songââtell him itâs as good as âSONG TITLEâ and heâll take it as a complimentâand âValentine,â which has a decided â80s ADJECTIVE feel. âI write songs like a MOVIE TITLE soundtrack,â Brown concedes. âI donât do it on purpose, but I think the things that you pay attention to in your ADJECTIVE years are the things that come out of you when you VERB. The first song I ever learned to play on the drums was BAND NAMEâs âSONG TITLE.ââ
Perhaps nothing sums up BLAME IT ON THE YOUTH better than the fact that Brownâs BAND NAME-ish epic is preceded by the ADJECTIVE âLose Your Money,â a country blues (originally by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee) that Burney learned from SONG WRITER NAME. The bandâs ADJECTIVE also stands out on the loping-then-aggressive âSay Goodbyeâââa white boy wannabe soul song that turns into a GENRE song,â Burney says. âItâs about HISTORICAL FIGURE and peopleâs Dadâs dying and VERB-ing too much.â Elsewhere, songs like âRomantic Deathâ and â2B4â manage to combine the hooks of BAND NAME with the politically charged eye for detail of HISTORICAL FIGRUE.â A child of PLURAL NOUN who calls himself a âNOUN,â Burney doesnât mince words about the role his home state played in the HISTORICAL EVENT. âI waited in line for AMOUNT OF TIME to VERB,â he says. âDemocracy has PAST TENSE VERB.â
âBut at the same time, weâre just a MUSIC GENRE band,â Burney adds. âWe want to make really solid PLURAL NOUN that get on the NOUN to put our kids through NOUN.â
