Greg MacPherson Band 

Fireball

click to enlarge reviews_feature5.jpg

A native Cape Bretoner now based in Winnipeg, MacPherson makes genre-defying rock that continues to gain emotional force. Lead track "1995" muses about youthful idealism, squandered affections and redirected energy with a slashing guitar jamming in extra notes to emphasize the vision quest. A blindfold quiz on MacPherson would be tough. Fireball roars like Creedence Clearwater Revival, is tightly wound like Joe Jackson, yet has a sharp modern sound. Thumping bass backs "Sand Hand," a declaration of eternal devotion that could enhance a disaster film's closing credits. Through most of the album, rhythm rises as if to relieve profound need.
