“Usually if a band claims to have a jazz background or to be influenced by jazz, it means they own a John Coltrane record. It doesn’t really inspire confidence. But Photon Dynamo frontman Frank Rathbone has instead applied the unconventional chord progressions of his jazz training to the crunch and clang of garage rock. It’s a very post-punk attitude, using musical aptitude in genre that doesn’t require it. But what could be more rock ‘n’ roll than the absence of defined structure? Plus, those “buh ba bas” are dead catchy.” BushwickBK.com
