Colors Of The Universe is the latest chapter in a string of power pop song crafting and recording from Marc Platt of the Real Impossibles.
Singer, songwriter, musician Marc Platt has had a hand in strumming, writing and recording SoCal power-pop, garage, surf, and Brill Building inspired beat rock since the early 80's performing with the Real Impossibles to the mid 90's stepping out solo and coming full circle to co-managing and recording with garage rock mainstays The Tearaways in the world as we know it now... today.
After re-releasing the Real Impossibles inspiring, hook driven, power-pop classic 'It's About Time' on CD to rave reviews and favorable radio play on many independent, college, and satellite radio stations, he went back to his songbook, turned back the pages, and pulled out some of his finest moments in songwriting that needs to be heard in a world looking for new rock n' roll, yearning to be heard. Colors Of The Universe has it all, conjuring up inspired echoes of the Brill Building, to SoCal summer day sounds that the early Kinks, and even Mamas & Papas, who were known to play guitar fuzz surf rock-to-garage rock & power-pop. Add in a dash of Dramarama, a hint of BoDeans, and a twang from Lone Justice and you will hear what we mean.. Take a moment and let these sounds ride that wave in.
Rum Bar Records is turning into one of the absolute best labels for real rock and roll these days, if you haven't gotten hip to that trip. It's the boss sound from the Boss-town." - Bill Kelly, Bill Kelly's Teenage Wasteland WFMU
