The Marble Index - The Marble Index

The Marble Index - The Marble IndexHard rock from Hamilton, Ont. Is there any other kind? What sets this three-piece apart from other loud Steeltown bands is its devotion to melodic hooks. While MC5 and The Clash are influences on such edgy tracks as “I Believe” and “We Can Make It,” the Index shows a strong kinship with the Brit punk-pop of The Jam and The Small Faces on catchy songs like “Alright by Now” and “House of Mirth.” Turns out that the Hamilton trio recorded its debut in the English town of Wigan, home of The Verve. Nice one, lads.
