This Is Now
-Here And Now-
By Bob Silvestri

Moving into the present the band formally known as Da’loris have renamed themselves This Is Now and have released a new CD to mark the occasion titled Hear & Now. The band (Bob rich-guitar/vocals, Bob Kupczyk-guitar/vocals, Kent Weber-bass and Kevin Kilner-drums) still plays a form of cerebral power pop uniquely their own regardless of their moniker. The disc was recorded at Robby Takac’s Chameleon West Studios with Alan Farmelo and Marc Hunt at the controls and was mastered at Nick Blagona’s Metalworks Studio. That’s the same trio who worked on Deep Purple front man Ian Gillian’s new disc. A couple of the tracks to check out here include “Better Than Now”, the big sounding “Father Son” and the remix of the same with horns for an even bigger sound, the SKA infused “Mine All Mine” and the warp speed version of The Beatles “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”. Levity reigns on the track “Da’Loritab” a sly play on the bands’ previous name and the pharmaceutical du jour as bass and drums shuffle along to a recorded phone message between band members with the refrain of “Hey Bob, It’s Bob”. Trust me it’s clever. Check out This Is Now and their disc Hear & Now at www.thisisnowonline.com
