'Yeah, but what kind of music do you play?' Blake Jones & the Trike Shop is a quirky avant-pop band trying to, depending on who you talk to, bridge the gap between: frank zappa and paul McCartney/cocoa pebbles and episodes of 'Dark Shadows' /15 century church music and Dr. Seuss. --THEREMINS WHIR,GUITARS CLANG and a good time is had by all. Spear-headed by life-long songwriter and DIY-er Blake Jones, their recordings are characterized by strong melodies supported by an eclectic blend of standard 'rock' instruments and thrift store oddities such as the theremin and toy piano. ********** But perhaps the only explanation needed is that written by James Gardner of the All Music Guide: 'It lands like a pure-pop present on your doorstep!'
