Never Fear REVIEWS
"The songs are great, suggesting the finest moments of The Mekons "
CMJ MAGAZINE 'Jackpot'
"Joe Hurley is one of N.Y.'s most entertaining frontmen. His distinctive vocals can be raucous as all get-out, and as sorrowful as a baritone can be"
"Celtic-tinged R & R with unshakable pop hooks, mixing guitars & keyboards with mandolin & tin whistle, Rogue's March celebrate drinking, depression, and strife, with songs thickly coated in black humor.
"Shut Up and Drink" and "Amsterdam Mistress" (which rhymes "pints of guinness" with "lots of slow kisses" ) make for perfect St Patrick's Day wallowing"
NEW YORK TIMES
"Rogue's March are a fantastic band who have managed to capture the same excitement they create during a show in a tight, raw, studio recording, NEVER FEAR. This 14 song collection is an exuberant package featuring a heap of memorable music."
NEW YORK POST 'CD Of the Week'
"Musically tight & hugely entertaining, Rogue's March play an inspired hybrid of C&W, Irish Trad,and R & R. 'NEVER FEAR' showcases songs such as "Joyriding", which is as poignant and reckless as anything this side of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter", and "I'm In Love (But Not With You)" which recalls the turn on a dime riffs of Jam era punk. "Amsterdam Mistress" remains one of the most evocative ballads ever penned"
"On NEVER FEAR, you'll find jig-rockers like 'A Rose is God's autograph', poignant ballads, such as the glimpse of an 11-year-old's world in a dysfunctional family in 'When You Feel Like Crying', rousing Grecian Folk tempos on 'Whispering Salvation" and an unusual bent to songs like 'I'm in Love (but Not With You)' and the cheerfully preposterous notion of a bleary 8am mind in 'I Wish My Wife Was A Country Singer '
Rogue's March sell out shows (1,500 at Irving Plaza) & radio airplay is brisk. Artists such as Marianne Faithfull are coming by to sit in with them, and in an MTV interview, the Band played their single 'Bend in The Road'. Never Fear is out now on Caroline Records
There is true magic on Never Fear, from the upbeat screamers like 'Shut Up and Drink' to the gorgeous ballads like 'Amsterdam Mistress' & the medley of influences works. Rogue's March turns up the heat in a very American way."
"Rogue's March combines the attitude and drive of the Sex Pistols with the wry lyrical detail of say, a Richard Thompson or Lyle Lovett"
NEW YORK PRESS
"Esteemed rocker Joe Hurley leads Rogue's March, a stately combo that uses New York's roots-rock cognoscenti to interpret the shape of traditional Irish Music"
TIME OUT NY
"I came away with a new favorite NYC band, Rogue's March, whose 'Shut Up and Drink' is a sure party anthem for the end of the century."
THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE
"Joe Hurley's voice sounds like the morning after a good bender on Guinness, whisky, heartache, and nicotine. And that voice is pure gold. Hear it on 'Never Fear', from Rogue's March, the muscular punk-Irish-country-English music hall-cabaret band Hurley fronts"
NEW JERSEY RECORD
"At the Guinness Fleadh on Saturday, Joe Hurley and his large Celtic crew gave what would be one of the most talked about rock performances of the festival".
NEW YORK POST
"When not touring with their new CD 'Never Fear' Rogue's March draws crowds including Marianne Faithfull (who jammed with the band onstage), director Jim Sheridan, Timothy Hutton, Martha Plimpton, The Mekons, Matt Dillon, and Denis Leary.. Joe Hurley is revered for his soulful baritone"
NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"Joe Hurley has the best set of pipes you'll ever hear"
"Rich, poetic imagery, with charismatic Celtic ballads and love songs that sound like a late night heart-to-heart with the bartender, such as the newly-minted classic 'Amsterdam Mistress' with the lyrics "Pints of Guinness, lots of slow kisses, we were almost in love, my Amsterdam Mistress"
"That was MARIANNE FAITHFULL at Paddy Reilly's on Sunday, checking out Joe Hurley's great band, Rogue's March. Faithfull arrived with Oscar Winning director Jim Sheridan, ("My Left Foot") and screenwriter Terry George. Faithfull ended up onstage belting out songs from Rogue's March's new album 'Never Fear' and her all-time hit "As Tears Go By". "The band is wonderful" said Sheridan. "They're truly original"
