This open, anything-goes new millennium cries out for anything-goes, jack-of-all-trade rock bands like T-Minus Band. All over the place yet in touch with rock history, T Minus Band (really mostly one person, Troy T) takes an otherworldly approach to classic, pump-your-fist rock grooves. The first proper track, "Take the Ride," has the guitars and rock-anthem melody of genuine 70s rock radio but also a certain haziness hinting at the stylistic changes to come later in the album. T Minus Band plays straight-on rock on one level, but tempers it with beats, vocal effects and other weird but fascinating touches. The band name sounds like it indicates a countdown of some sort, but is it a countdown to destruction? No, it feels more like the start of some kind of reverse apocalypse, a rebirth of rock history, but this around everything’s been warped somehow, made weirder. All sorts of points in rock’s life span are touched on here.
There’s a glam-rock feel here, dirty-punk touches there, plus 1960s-ish harmonies and some doses of psychedelia and blues-rock. But it all has a spacey atmosphere to it, an unreality that makes it feel like the work of an explorer and experimenter more than a revisionist. "I look for you almost every day/you are elusive in every way," Troy T sings over atmospheric synth on the lovely trip "Elusive." Technostalgia is equally elusive, but that’s what’s so delightful about it. Everything seems familiar but also new. As a listener you feel both anchored and floating, and it’s a wonderful feeling.
