TWO TON SHOE just finished a full length CD!!!! Its called Never Cancel The Stage! 12 brand spanking new tunes.
The music of Two Ton Shoe combines world-weary rock wisdom, deep pocket pop sensibility, wry white soul optimism and a kind of barely restrained muscular chopsiness underneath it all that threatens to rip your face off if youre not careful. The songs sound as though they were crafted with painstaking care in a secret laboratory on the moon, designed to liberate the masses from urban loneliness and modern radio lameness. Formed in 1995, primarily from the members of Boston alt metal outfit Mystery Jones, Two Ton Shoe won instant street cred in the New England area with live performances that had both local music aficionados and drunks screaming and local musicians shaking their heads in dumb admiration. While the punch and ferocity of their metal background gave the music a solid launch pad, the music is now driven by nasty funk grooves and tightly constructed pop melodies, along with soaring solo performances that brought to mind the craftiness and charm of 70s session musicians laying it down on buttery black vinyl. Successful pop music has often been about experimentation taking disparate elements and combining them in a novel way.
Muscular and original melodic rock are the foundation for Petrina Foley and her band.
