about

Chicago's Triple Fast Action delivers a crushing pack of intense, supercharged rock on Cattlemen Don't, blowing the doors off their acclaimed 1996 debut "Broadcaster." As varied sonically as it is emotionally, Cattlemen Don't builds on a balance of energy, melody, dynamics and harmony. The record is graced with the irresistible hook and infectious undertone of "Heroes," the deceptive impact and glowing guitars of "I'm Ready," the passionate and endearing ballads "Eurogirl," "Bearer of Bad News" and "Cattlemen Don't" and the raging adrenaline rock of "Pure" and "No Doubt." What separates Triple Fast Action so far from the pack of alterna-clones is their polished yet unrestrained songwriting. Their trademark searing rock highs and delicate, textured lows create mesmerizing tempos that rise and fall much like a rollercoaster, never ending without bringing in the noise. This startling dynamic combined with their savvy guitar-play and Wes Kidd's charred, expressive vocals give the band its thoughtful, electric personality. And on command, Wes' soft and soulful voice has the impressive ability to turn into a well-oiled, screaming rage machine. Triple Fast Action< has achieved the improbable...where punk velocity, radio hooks, indie spirit and arena rock glory cross paths and even stop to shake hands. TFA's front man Wes Kidd co-produced Jimmy Eat World's "Static Prevails" so you know this rocks. Unreleased song "I Want To Know" on Emo Diaries 1. (DER-364)

"A sonic boom of enormous sound that ebbs and flows with emotion. With unabashed energy, melodic acumen and genuine sentiment, Triple Fast Action satisfies all desires one could ask for from rock'n'roll." - Option

"Cattlemen Don't is a bittersweet collection of indie post-power pop that achieves the kind of edgy irony that Cobain was always striving for. Deceptively hooky power-pop songs that often extend into escapades of battling power-chord guitars." - Guitar

"A refreshing and thoroughly satisfying dose of emotionally-charged pop from start to finish." - Exclaim

"Triple Fast is living proof that there is still nothing as invigorating as rock played with passion. Cattlemen Don't helps you remember why you love rock'n'roll." - Jersey Beat

"A rawk-leaning take on pathos-and-distortion-drenched pop, well served by surprisingly accomplished songwriting." - Alternative Press
