The Neighbors are the brainchild of ultra-prolific singer/songwriter Allen Farmelo. Compared to Husker Du, Weezer & REM, Farmelo cites bluegrass legend Bill Monroe as his songwriting idol. "It's all there in Monroe--song structure, melody, harmonies, hooks, powerful lyrics. Those are my priorities, but we do the guitar rock-pop thing." Specifically, chiming, distorted guitars, driving 4/4 rhythms and Farmelo's distinct, mid-rangy voice carrying the melodies and harmonies to the forefront. Including Tyler Harrington (guitar), Doug Lambert (bass), and Craig Voigt (drums), The Neighbors play year-round in the US and Canada. The Neighbors surprise the uninitiated with their blustery live sets. "It's the band's name and our quasi Ivy-League looks. Folks assume we'll behave like Elvis Costello, but live we just rock out." Just such a live track was recently included on the first release from Goo-Goo Dolls' Rob Takac's Good Charamel Records. info@theneighbors.net, www.theneighbors.net
