their release “Liquid Comfort”, the Baltimore based modern rock
quartet Witzend comes to the table offering eight songs cut from familiar
and not so familiar cloth. The albums opening track “Whisper My
Conscience” immediately conjours up shades of the Synchronicity era work
that made The Police a household name two decades ago; but still maintains
a very current sensibility.
"The four members of Baltimore;s Witzend deliver an intoxicating stage show. Their deliciously original material is clever, intricate rock. Front and center is Bryan Tucker with clear, polished vocals and a magnetic presence. Opening with 'Bad Karma', Tucker's melodic voice captivates. Drummer Wayne Fritz and bassist Chris Boron display an amazing synchronization from the heartbeat percussion of 'Broken' to the hiccup tempo jumps of 'Glitter', while Fritz also supplies background vocals in 'Fit to Be Tied', a catchy little tune about bondage. Mark Z reflects the complexity of Witzend with his accomplished guitar style. Besides the highly sexual overtones that the band purveys in its music, it doesn't hurt that this band is way easy on the eyes. Pick up a copy of their CD, Borrow Your Gods, at Record and Tape Traders, Border's, The Soundgarden, CD Warehouse and CD Depot, in the Baltimore/DC area. And be sure to check them out at the Elbow Room in NYC, because you need to hear 'Famous Last Words' live.
