Sloan and 60s music
"Does anyone hear any Beach Boys influence in Sloan? Jay Ferguson laughed
at the idea, but I think it's obvious. It's mainly Chris. The high
falsetto (sic?): come on, who else but Brian Wilson used it so much. It's
not the music that reminds me of the Beach Boys, just Chris' voice. I
understand that Chris only recently bought some Beach Boys records, but I
can't avoid hearing the influence. Any comments?"
I can see this, whether or not it's actually true. Sloan's music first reminded
me of the Hollies (w/Graham Nash), then the Byrds...which is great IMO!
