The Silos
-When The Telephone Rings-
By Bob Silvestri

The Silos breakthrough came in the late Eighties /early Nineties with their CD Cuba and they quickly joined such bands as The De Fuegos, The Blasters and The Del Lords with college radio play and a cult following. While most of those bands belong to music history, The Silos continue to make music along such newer bands as The Old 97’s and The Jayhawks. The band has mostly become a front name for Walter Salas-Humara, always the creative force behind the band. On the bands new Dualtone release, When The Telephone Rings, he is joined by Drew Glackin on bass and Konrad Meissner on drums.  The band shines on the tracks “The Only Love” with Richard Lloyd on guitar, the somber “Whistled A Slow Waltz” and “Holding On To Life”. Also of note are the bitter “Don’t Wanna Know”, “The First Move”, the title cut “When The Telephone Rings” and the bong raspy vocals of “Take A Hit”. A great and in most circles an unheralded band, The Silos When The Telephone Rings is a richly textured CD. For more info check out www.thesilos.net and www.dualtone.com
