'Wishing Well Eyes' is our second full length release. We play instantly hummable, jangly pop, wrapped in a melodic web of bass and guitar. There are hints of the moody guitar pop of the Cure, the Smiths, the Felt, and New Order, the jangle pop of early REM, the Bats, the Chills, and the Field Mice, and the icy vocals of Joy Division and the Chameleons. All songs are highlighted by John Suchocki's catchy, sometimes soaring guitar leads and expressive bass lines. John Morand (engineer/producer for Cracker, Sparklehorse, Sukilove, Mint, etc...) once again supplies the drums and some technical help, and Wallace Dietz sings and strums on eleven more memorable pop songs from the Silent Boys! Here are some reviews of 'Wishing Well Eyes': NOT LAME A most beguiling and rewarding album for fans of some classic, more obscure (at least now) sounds of the mid/late 80's; we're talking bands like The Feelies, The Housemartins, Lovetractor, The Smiths, Miracle Legion, Kiwi bands like The Chills and The Bats and The Field Mice. At it's base, the songs here are driven by acoustic guitar interplay warmly blending with the electric weaving, darting in and out of the action---which works perfectly with the sunny, positivism on 'Wishing Well Eyes'. There's a deceptive musical sophistication that lies beneath the laid-back ambience. It's deceptive in it's subtlety, while keeping a 'back porch', informal, friendly sound. Each listen reveals new pleasures and layers to enjoy. Very Highly Recommended! HIGH BIAS Wishing Well Eyes contains another batch of 80s-informed, pop-giddy guitar songs. Leader Wallace Dietz's dry voice and ringing acoustic guitar frame his ultra-melodic, tastefully positive tunes; the rest of the band gives the tracks just enough thrust to keep things moving. 'A Trip to the Country,' 'November Woods' and 'Johnny is Cool!' will make fans of bands like the Black Watch and For Against smile, and the Feelies tribute 'Crazy Rhythms' is a nice, clever touch. Michael Toland UNDER BLUE SKIES Remember the jangly days of Postcard Records, Creation, C86, Sarah & a whole lot more? Just mix it with the new world order of indie-pop and you'll get this great but hard to see band called the Silent Boys (remember them?). They have been playing cool music in the past decades & have been on various compilations ('Seven Summers' on Tweenet Communications/Kindercore, 'Will There Be Time For Tea?' on Morgan Leah and 'You Thought It Was The End Of The World When The Rain Ruined Your Hair' on Firestation Records) and they released their highly acclaimed debut, 'Beauty Tips' back in 2004 to the janglepop hungry fans all over the globe. If you loved Felt, McCarthy, Mighty Mighty, Brideshead, Den Baron, The Go-Betweens, Adorable, New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen and other fine acts, you'll love them! But hey wait! It's not endin' there as the long wait is over- the band has just released a new LP! Yes, not a single song nor a best of but a NEW LP full of jangly P!O!P! tunes titled 'Wishing Well Eyes' still on Walrus Records. With it's founder and leader Wallace Dietz leading the way & the two other permanent members of the band still on board (bassist and lead guitarist) John Suchocki and (drummer) John Morand, the Silent Boys will be ringing our heads with their guitar oriented pop songs! DAGGER Wallace Dietz has been creating music as The Silent Boys from his home in Virginia for many years now but his debut CD wasn't until a few years ago. That record, BEAUTY TIPS was 9 solid slices of jangle pop with a slight undercurrent of the Factory Records rhythms (you know what I mean). He's written 11 songs this time (w/ the same lineup including semi-famous Virginian John Morand who twisted some knobs in the studio for Honor Role, among others) and the songwriting is better and seems more confident. The rasp of "Sleepy Head" reminded me of early (read: good) Psycedelic Furs while the title track was something that could have appeared on one of those early, great Sarah Records comps. There seems to be a never-ending supply of marvelous hooks here and that's
