Here’s what Johnny Hickman of Cracker has to say about the new EP:
I remember the first time Backyard Tire Fire opened a show for Cracker. I was hanging out backstage, but not for long. By the end of their set I was hooked and buying their CDs. Now Ed and Scott have put together another great band with Magic Box. It’s apparent on every track of the self titled debut that these guys understand the power of a simple but unforgettable guitar riff or blazing solo woven seamlessly into the subtleties of a great pop song. Their sound echoes 70s era glory like Neil Young and Crazyhorse or The James Gang, yet simultaneously sparkles with elements that are modern and immediately catchy. I can’t wait to see them bust it out live!
