I've always thought of SP as sort of Tom Petty and Beatles influence. Great music though. Been following these guys for years, since their garage band days in Haddon Heights NJ. They'd be playing and the cops would come by and ask them to lower the volume due to neighbor complaints.
Yeah, you´re right. I can hear Tom Petty somewhere in there too.
I always thought Tom Petty sounded a little like Smash Palace. They are original talent in their own right.
