Take note Killers, Blah Blah Blah are on your heels. With glam rock vocals, a slamming rhythm section and enough oooohs, ahhhs, and moans to make you feel funny in your pants Blah Blah Blah has something special that I haven’t heard in the Chicago scene as of yet. Their drummer, especially in “Why am I the Only One laughing” goes from straight up rock drumming, to a techno influenced kick, snare, hi-hat club banger, except without the club, or the banging really – the drums sit fairly low in the mix. A nice pad introduction in “They Don’t Dance” along with a constant four to the floor kick speeds up an otherwise boring beginning to a song. Blah Blah Blah has a great name, a pretty decent sound, but could use a sexual kick in the ass – they create music that could easily be dancey and interesting, but instead feels a bit impotent. They could really pound out songs and make you feel them, but the mixes don’t really pump, and the tunes don’t really vary much. I want some love makin’ music from you guys, so please deliver -my girlfriend’s waiting…Catch them February 26th at Betty’s Blue Star Lounge located on Grand and Ashland.
