The Disconnects (...Are Healthy EP)

The Disconnects are a Neptune City, NJ four piece that have a great retro seventies edge with allot of New York Rock–n-Roll Attitude. Musically they make no secret of who their influences are, think: Heartbreakers, Dead Boys, Ramones. I got to see them live at their record release show for this EP last week, and I really enjoyed them. Front man Ryan Switzer, has a great stage presence, and is a really nice guy. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to talk to the rest of the band, but they were tight, and really seemed to enjoy themselves. I think there were only 30 people there, but they blasted through their set as if they were playing for a thousand; to me, that’s the sign of a good band. I believe this EP was first released as a cassette, and even the vinyl is in a very limited supply. In all I think the pressing is limited to 300 copies; 200 on black, and 100 on glow in the dark vinyl; that’s the one I bought. I included the first two tracks for you to check out, if you want to pick up a copy you can get one Here. I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys in the future.

The Disconnects are:

Ryan Switzer- Guitar/Vocals
Tommy Miller- Guitar
Tony Nova- Bass
Joe Brendell- Drums

Trick Turn Records 2011
