Profile Hailing from Philadelphia, Bricklin was formed in the 1980s by brothers Brian and Scott Bricklin. They were signed in 1986 to A&M records. Although the band evolved into today’s Martin’s Dam, their music was featured in several films. Most notably Coming Soon, The Shrink is In, Election, and of course Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure!

This album was ignored by the mainstream press at the time, passed off as faceless commercial rock. Perhaps so, but there’s more depth here than some of the other bands that were lauded at the time. The fact that A&M did ‘diddly squat’ to promote the album only compounded matters. Producer Neil Dorfsman puts together a mixed package. And that in itself is a problem, as the music does tend to ebb and flow between tracks.

A very stripped down and earthy piece of music, getting back to the roots of heartland US rock.
