De Nova

Paraphrasing the lyrics to ”Rocks Off” does not make you the Rolling Stones. Borrowing riffs from ”Simple Twist of Fate” does not make you Bob Dylan. Mimicking John Lennon’s voice and the way it was recorded does not make you the Beatles. Groaning ”What’s this s— goin’ down ’bout the FCC?” is just plain dumb. At best, this vigorous young Chicago quartet, The Redwalls, is a glorified tribute act; mostly, they just recall how much smarter and fresher their idols were on De Nova.
