: Another British Invasion?

3-13-00 6:00 AM PST antiGUY

Are we headed for another British Invasion? That was a question we asked at the underGROUND earlier this month concerning the forthcoming album from the new British band, Unamerican. Since then, we got our hands on an advanced copy of the disc courtesy of Universal Records and now we understand what all the hype was about. 

Many believe the album and the first single "She's the Bomb" have chart topping potential. Will the four lads from London follow in the footsteps of the four lads from Liverpool?  We will discover that in April after the album release.  Universal Records will take the unusual step of releasing the album first in the US before unleashing it on the band's home audience. Many feel that this band will lead a new British Invasion - Battling for chart position against U.S. heavy weights like Blink-182 and the Goo Goo Dolls. 

The album was ironically recorded in America. The sound mixes the best elements of Modern rock with Classic Rock and pop. Are the members anti-American? We think not. "We love the music of America and recording the album there has always been our ambition" - lead vocalist and guitarist, Steve McEwan.

The name is a play on the fact that they sound like an American band and they're from the U.K. Sort of like a music site called antiMUSIC? No wonder we like these guys so much. 

Keep an eye out here at antiMUSIC for a special feature for these lads in the coming days so you can get better acquainted with them. It will include an album review, bio, band photo plus what ever else we can get our hands on.  For now you can hear a preview of what the next British Invasion will sound like on the UnAmerican web site.
