FIFTEEN MINUTES

METAL FORCES ISSUE 37 MARCH 1989

FIFTEEN MINUTES

FIFTEEN MINUTES are a new L.A. based band featuring David Walker (lead vocals/guitars), Darby (drums), Joe Ferrario (bass) and Mark O’Connell (lead guitar). The band took their name from an Andy Warhol statement and have their roots deeply embedded in the post-punk era. Basically, FIFTEEN MINUTES play straightforward rock with a psychedelic tint.

“Hurry Up Man” is my favourite cut, being both bluesy and commercial, whilst “Closet Man” is a weird kinda psychedelic sounding number, one minute DOORS sounding and the next getting real heavy.

“Impossible To Talk To You” is blues of the highest order and David Walker’s bizarre vocals make it totally original sounding. There is no doubt in my mind that FIFTEEN MINUTES will get signed and they’ve already picked up a publishing/artist development deal with Chrysalis, so big news is surely just round the corner.
