GENRE: Straight ahead roots rock with an intelligent, heartfelt, ironic chewy center. Inspired by The Kinks,Tom Petty,Stones and Paul Westerberg, et al.
"Ever wonder what Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Paul Westerberg and Steve Jordan would sound like in a band together? Listen to Monty Warren & the Friggin Whatevers..."—The Palm Beach Post
"From gritty foot-stompers to jangly roots and blues belters to acoustic melancholy, Warren brims with a rare and raw musical sincerity."—Vex Magazine, Calgary, CANADA
"Retroactively bridges the gap between '70s pub rock/power pop and the arrivals of Tom Petty, Graham Parker and Elvis Costello…effortlessly enjoyable, a virtue without expiration."—Indy Week
"Old-school, Beatles-Stones-Dylan-Band-Dead-Prince-inspired, psychedelic-white soul-funky roots rock...as earnest, lyrical, raunchy or grandiose as their songs—and maybe lives?—require."
—Jazz Beyond Jazz (Arts Journal Blog
Instead of heading for L.A. in the '70s, in pursuit of a record deal, Monty Warren put his rock 'n' roll dreams on hold to support his mother for 20 years until she passed away. Then, in 2007, Warren played a demo for Terry Anderson & The Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team (Battleship Chains, I Love You Period), and they offered to help him make a record. And the rest, as they say, is Friggin Whatevers history.
