âThereâs going to be a lot of sweat, thereâs going to be bodies moving,â says Silver Needle bassist Johnny 99 of his bandâs live show. âSpontaneous, combustible energy.â

But donât think that Silver Needle are just more wham-bam-also-rans: cathartic as their live performances are, theyâre delivering cultured songs which boast the instinctive hooks of Cheap Trick and Queens Of The Stone Age, the elegance of classic Bowie, and the Ramonesâ timeless adrenaline.

Over 4 years, 2 self-produced albums, numerous compilation appearances, and shows with the likes of Joan Jett, International Noise Conspiracy, Living Colour, Mike Watt, and Dee Dee Ramone, this L.A.-based foursome have earned a reputation as a thinking fanâs head-rush (once compared to Morrissey fronting the New York Dolls).

The commonality between Silver Needleâs diverse elements is âgood songwriting, choruses, energy, originality, and personality,â says 99. âYou canât typecast this band--the great bands that we were influenced by had a variety of influences - thatâs what kept them interesting and gave them substance and longevity.â

With two self produced and released discs behind them, Silver Needle are finishing and shopping a new album with producer Gary Tharp. The upcoming disc is a testament to their composition savvy and a document of a seasoned band with a story to tell â the antithesis of the producer-assembled McArtists which clog the airwaves.

The moody âTourniquetâ, a longtime fan favorite, simmers over early U2 and Bowie before detonating its brain-staining hook. âShuttered Heartâ and âDef Con Unoâ display Silver Needleâs increasing fondness for what Allen terms âtight, succinct, three minute pop-rock explosions.â

Throughout, Silver Needleâs scrupulous songcraft sets them apart: âItâs almost like a video game,â says Allen. âWe take it one place and then try to take it somewhere else, and if it crashes weâll just talk about it and then start it over again, to get to the next level.â
