MARINE DREAMS - Marine Dreams

Though Attack in Black are no more, its former members have carried on, producing a total of 2 EPs and 4 LPs since that band's demise in 2010. The latest of the bunch is AIB bassist Ian Kehoe's excellent debut as Marine Dreams.

"Nothing flashy, just 10 concise, crisply tuneful jams that go exactly where they should in subtly ingenious ways, shot through with a keen sense of wit and an audible appreciation for classic songcraft. Some pretty hot guitar playing, too. You’ll think fondly of Big Star, Guided by Voices, the Buzzcocks, the Who and Tom Petty hangin’ with Jeff Lynne while it’s playing and feel very good indeed about hitting “repeat” when the half-hour is up." - Toronto Star

"It’s the kind of record you can easily listen to over and over again and again; a true record from start to finish.  It’s something that he and his fellow AiB buddies seem to understand intrinsically.  Each of their solo efforts during their current hiatus, as well as their last Attack In Black full length, are documents made to be digested as a whole." - Quick Before It Melts

"Marine Dreams is everything I love about guitar music. Kehoe’s ability to find melody from the most inauspicious chords and captivate me with premature endings and new beginnings is a lost skill." - Herohill
