The Answer @ Mercury Lounge (2/3/2009)

The Answer are a hot Rock & Roll band that knows how to deliver and on a recent snowy night in NYC they made an appearance at The Mercury Lounge. Scroll past the logo to check out the report by Skeleton Pete. I shot the photos for this one and a full gallery will be presented in addition to what you see here.

Artist: The Answer
Venue: The Mercury Lounge (New York, NY)
Opener: n/a
Date: 2/3/2009
Label: The End Records

Inclement weather does not deter the rock faithful of NYC from their appointed rounds, which is to set the DVR, shut off the 52” LCD, and get out of the house to hear some of the great live music of which we are blessed with in abundance. So despite the frozen slush and chilling wind that came with this evening’s snowstorm, it was no surprise that when Cormac Neeson (lead vocalist of The Answer) quizzed the packed house at the Mercury lounge on February 3, 2009 – “Is this your normal Tuesday night?” – He got a resounding “Hell, yeah” back. What ensued was a smoking set of gut bucket rock and roll riffs and bluesy hollers that paid off big dividends for the intrepid attendees that evening.

“Never Too Late” by The Answer

Artist: The Answer
Title: “Never Too Late”
Label: The End Records
Release Date: 11/18/2008
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

I had only heard about The Answer when I learned that they would be opening up for ACDC during the bands recent tour and while I had not attended those shows it was reported that they were killing the audiences and leaving them screaming for more. Given that I was eager to give them a listen and now had my chance with this EP CD/DVD set called “Never Too Late”. The band hails from Belfast, Ireland and delivers a really healthy brand of Groove Hard Rock for lack of a better specification. I felt there were a lot of Led Zeppelin similarities based on the driving riffs of the guitar and pounding of the drums and let’s face it, this is never a bad band to call to mind. The tunes are catchy with the easy to find yourself singing choruses and lyrics and with their singer Cormac, the notes seem to propel to the upper atmosphere. Really interesting stuff and with the EP only bearing four tunes I was left wanting more. “Never Too Late” rocks and my second favorite comes via “Come Follow Me”. It’s all good stuff at the end of the day and I am sure that there are incredible things ahead of these dudes if the right people are listening. The EP comes with a bonus DVD that is loaded with about 45 minutes of content that will allow you to gain a better understanding about them. We’ll talk on that next.
