Over the years, the Dimestore Haloes from Boston, with their many singles and three prior albums, have built up a worldwide cult-like following of people who listen to various genres of music, and they did it by mixing '77 punk, rockabilly, glam, power pop, and rock 'n' roll.Throughout their time together, one issue after another never quite allowed the Haloes to achieve the rock 'n' roll domination they should have, but for those who appreciate them, they came close. This post-humus release of their last album finds the Haloes growing up some, but still with plenty of their signature catchy pop hooks and '77 snot. You also get a bit of piano, a bit more rock in their roll, and a good dose of Exile-era Rolling Stones. If anything, the Haloes were beautiful losers in the proud tradition of Johnny Thunders, ahead of their time and ready to be appreciated today. This is "The Ghosts of Saturday Night", the Dimestore Haloes fourth album, considered by many to be their best work.
In August of 2006, Haloes drummer Jimmy Reject took his own life. Jimmy has two books available here.
