The Begowatts - Photoelectric

The Begowatts are lovably strange birds, indeed. Lead singer Benjamin Tofflemire sounds like Ian Astbury of The Cult, while being backed by a less bluesy ZZ Top at times. Band members met in the Astronomy and Computer Science program at the University of Wisconsin, but their sound has a loose, hedonistic vibe running through it. They sound like some mighty serious partiers.

It's uncertain if a song title like "Rock Lust" is cool AC/DC or dumb-funny Spinal Tap. You get the feeling that these smart guys aren't merely playing this music for the jokes, though. After a long day of studying the stars, perhaps a guy just wants to dream about the ultimate rock chick.

There are pundits today that claim classic rock is far better than most contemporary sounds. With Photoelectric, The Begowatts are keeping many of these classic sounds alive with a batch of brand new songs, while all the while proving a multitude of pundits right.
