The Wannabe Hasbeens
"Former Trans Future Vol. 1"
Genre: alt rock, pop/rock
What you get with The Wannabe Hasbeens is
competently written late-90s/early-2000s alternative rock music,
replete with decent hooks and enough energy to keep people listening.
There isn't a fragment of originality on this six song EP, but for
melodic reasons alone, "Hey, George Bailey" and "Gimme Substance" have
the potential to win over a decent set of fans. I could see these guys
perhaps getting things together and landing a minor radio single, but
their lack of a distinctive sound will prevent them from amassing a
dedicated and long-lasting fanbase - unless they add something of
their own to the music in the future. Keep at it, guys - it sounds
like you've got the chops.
