Powerful guitar-driven Rock and Roll with killer hooks and soaring vocal harmonies. The earliest and, for the majority of the record, never-released recordings of the band are all remastered here!
These are the earliest professionally documented recordings of Chris and Sean Lund, aka "Lund Bros". The first portion of the record was the result of Geffen Records' (in the year 1995) funding of the band's studio recording of six original songs for a "speculation deal". These recordings were eventually rejected as "too much like the Beatles" and the label passed on signing the band. The band are proud to this day of this ironic comparison to their heroes as are their fans who love their sound which harks back to a virtuoso songwriting style coupled with powerful rock and roll that no longer commercially exists today in our corporate mess of a music industry. Back to our story: Being the resourceful and progressive thinking gents that they are, Chris and Sean decided to use these recordings as a basis for their first full-length record, the self-titled "Loser" released in 1998 - which continues to receive praise and rave reviews to this day. The other tracks are from even earlier 1990s sessions that were never officially released, and show the band already firmly establishing their incredible hook-based rock and roll style. All material here has been remastered at Chris Lund's Demon Studios and is heard properly here for the first time. As stated previously, the majority of these recordings and/or recorded versions were never released and can only be found here! A must for fans and newcomers alike!
A new album from the Pacific NW's Lord's of Power Pop performed live at Seattle's legendary EMP and bursting with raw energy and inspiration!
Lund Bros are a power trio with two prolific songwriters who write hard rock with great hooks, crunching guitar riffs, and killer vocal harmonies. They have released 8 albums over the last decade filled with some of the catchiest rock you've ever heard.
With apparent influences of bands like Big Star, Queen, the Beatles, Cheap Trick, U2, and the Raspberries to name a few, you have simply got to check out the Bros' latest release. "Lund Bros - Live !" is a live concert album in the great rock and roll tradition, capturing the band's raw essence and proving that they can put across their incredible songs with maximum impact in person. This performance was captured at Seattle's world-famous EMP music museum and is sure to please current fans and those newly introduced to the group. Lund Bros are the rare case in which not only do they write great songs and put out great albums, but they are also able to deliver them with a power seldom exhibited by most "power pop" bands.
To that end, with the band captured here in raw form, this could be their best record yet!
Soaring harmonies and stellar songwriting by the Pacific NW's Lords of Power Pop, the band captured here "unplugged" on a sublime and magic night with an adoring crowd. Fans can't miss this intimate portrait of the band holding court.
Lund Bros are captured here under their previous moniker, "Loser", at the height of their powers. Playing "unplugged" to an adoring live crowd of fans, the atmosphere is an incredibly intimate portrait of the group, and is perhaps the best documentation of the band's raw talent that exists. Soaring harmonies and playful improvisation abound here, with so many great songs of fantastic original rock and roll. Also included here are some mostly off-the-cuff covers of some of their favorite artists thrown in generously. A must for fans!
New hook-based rock and roll inspired by the likes of the Beatles, Big Star, Boston, the Raspberries and Queen to name a few.
Great Event Syndrome is a new release from Chris Lund, who wrote all songs and arranged, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered the record in it's entirety in his home studio. Chris is perhaps best known for his work with Lund Bros -a highly respected Rock/Pop band formed by he and his brother who have released six full-length records over the last two decades.
Here, one may detect no shortage of inspiration from British rock style artists such as the Beatles, Cheap Trick, the Hollies, Big Star, Queen, or the Raspberries. There is also a nod here to purveyors of mid-tempo Americana style rock such as the Eagles and some early Boston.
If you have ever enjoyed music such as the aforementioned, you should find this record highly satisfying and it is likely to grow on you with repeated listening.
To top all this off, fans of Lund Bros should find Great Event Syndrome enjoyable, too!
Hook-driven, guitar based rock and roll anthems with killer vocal harmonies.
Rock and Roll songs for the ages - The Lund Bros' long-awaited sixth album contains killer hooks and loads of guitars, with the influences, energy and sound of such greats as the Raspberries and Beatles, Zeppelin, U2, Dylan, Cheap Trick, and Boston to name a few.
This 6th release gives a wink and a nod in spirit and songwriting to the the Bros' first two records, International Pop Overthrow, and Loser. Fans of those will want to get this one!
Power Pop Rock and Roll with loads of vocal harmony and guitars.
Songbook IV is the Lund Bros fourth official release and their second double album/CD release. Those who liked their previous releases (Tangents, IPO, and Loser) will not be disappointed. Songbook IV is full of great rock and roll tunes that go from a whisper to a roar, explode with the Lund's trademark vocal harmonies, and stinging and chiming with tons of guitars.
Think the musical range, musical surprise, and yet overall coherence of the Beatle's White Album. Angry, bittersweet, fun and strange all at the same time - just listen.
For those new to the band, they are a power trio founded by Chris and Sean Lund and rounded out with bassist Gwon Chang. They hail from the beautiful Pacific NW and have been writing songs prolifically while performing semi-regularly over the last ten years. They have written and recorded over the course of that time over 85 songs and are already nearly finished with the follow up to Songbook IV.
Classic power pop, crunch guitars and lush vocals
In the tradition of Rock and Roll brotherhood, Lund Bros. features the combined talents of Chris and Sean Lund. Think Ray and Dave Davies of the Kinks or Eddie and Alex Van Halen in terms of brotherly rapport. Their latest creation, Lund Bros' "Tangents", exemplfies their modern rock and pop sensibilites and songwriting while revealing an affinity for the glorified rock and pop of the past. The band consists of Chris on guitar and Sean on drums. They split vocal duties, with Chris also playing piano and Sean also playing guitar.
The Lund Bros. specialize in songwriting smarts, colorful, catchy hooks, full-tilting melodies and suitcases of happy, memorable, repeat-worthy pop hooks at every turn. What's more...an incredible value with 2 CDs at the price of one!
Power pop with a hard rock edge. Cascading vocal harmonies, loads of guitars, and great songs.
Internation Pop Overthrow is the second Lund Bros release and is a fan favorite. The most lavishly produced and polished of their three releases, it shines with powerful pop rock and roll gems throughout. From the driving rhythm and addicting chorus in I'll Remember,the sublime acoustic beauty of Power Lines, to the hard-rocking The Last One, this CD has the musical range of the Beatle's Revolver, or Zep's third album.
Chris and Sean Lund hail from Washington State and have successfully permeated the region with rock and roll sounds for the past decade. Recently adding bassist Gwon Chang to the line-up, they've been tearing up the Pacific NW club scene as of this very moment.
Get this disc, turn it up, and experience pop euphoria!
Power pop rock and roll
This is the Lund Bros' first release. Originally released in 1998, it is still a fan favorite due to the strong songwriting and powerful rock and roll hooks. This album was partially funded by Geffen records, who after hearing it decided to pass on the band as it was "too much like the Beatles". The band take that as a complement. If you like Cheap Trick, Badfinger, Raspberries, Queen, and other British Rock sounds be sure to check this out!
Melodic Classic Rock and Roll
This is the Lund Bros self-produced EP from way back in 1994! It's definitely green around the gills, but still produces big-time, with everything from intense, hard rock and roll to sublime acoustic beauty. This is is their most progressive and heaviest (at times) eclectic power pop for sure and a great look back at the germination of the band's sound and developing style. It's been compared to anything from Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath to Todd Rundgren to Crowded House, Big Star and Cheap Trick.
Definitely a must have for Lund Bros fans!
