Sometimes there’s a 70’s and 80’s band you love, that people just don’t know enough about. You swear if your friends just heard enough of the songs, they’d realize what they’ve been missing.
For us, one of those bands is Supertramp.
Join us on August 3rd at Martyrs and August 5th at Wire when Tributosaurus becomes Supertramp.
We love this band, whose catalog is extremely deep and varied. Their 70’s roots are firmly in progressive rock, highly skilled and beautifully executed. Rick Davies was a main driving force on vocals, keyboards, harmonica and more. The albums became more artful, with complex harmonies, and intricate saxophone and clarinet work. They produced some of the most unique radio hits of the time.
And then, bam. The brilliant Breakfast In America dominated the charts in 1979 and 1980. That album showcased the focused writing of bassist/vocalist Roger Hodgson, and his unique vocal sound. The success of the record sent them into the pop stratosphere, and it has sold more than 20 million copies.
It was also the beginning of the end for Supertramp’s large scale success, as Hodgson and Davies grew apart and ended their association in 1983.
Thankfully, they left a huge trove of excellent songs; we’re excited to play the ones we love.
Come out to Martyrs and Wire, where we promise to Give A Little Bit of our love to you in August.
