Description

British ex-pat, NYC resident, presents crafted, baroque, art rock tunes with garage, new wave and chamberpop tinges recalling Zombies, Left Banke and the Kinks. New Yorker Rogers lived his first 12 years of his life in Birmingham, which seems to have lent wry humour to his music - specifically this wondrous piece of elegiac glam rock (The Biba Crowd). It's a kind of musical equivalent to Jonathan Coe's The Rotter's Club. -The Word Magazine Porcelain works multiple sides of the fruitful 60s/70s flowering of rocks art pop culture, handling early 70s guitar rock curling The Biba Crowd, Diamonds Amour, and wry Topping the World, the James Williamson-Stooges-esque (yes!) Separate Walls, and the Dylan-meets-Badfinger Love With the World as fluently as baroque-stoked folk on Nothing Too Clever or the piano plucky Link to the Chain. Like loves The Left Banke, Kinks, and Zombies, Rogers realizes that the R in A&R (repertoire!) matters as much as groovy tunes. Rogers never disappoints. -The Big Takeover
