The 65's - Never Say Never #FlyahReview


The 65's hailing from Northeast Jersey are a quartet that fuses negative influences and aggression into punk rock and power pop. The name of their EP is called "Never Say Never". The artwork of the album depicts a cold and foggy forest giving a sense of danger and doom. The band stands out as a force cultivating a side of life that people normally would be overcome with. From chaos to high energy tunes, this band sure has the drive and determination to win. This great spirit is displayed in their CD entitled song "Never Say Never", where the band talks about reaching a breaking point and discovering that they have gone pass their limits. Still there is a positive message behind this song. Sometimes you can reach a pitfall but one thing is for certain, you must continue to fight.


Taken into a dark space, "Waiting Here So Long", is a call of help; but at times we can not trust or depend on a savior. I can understand this point of view because we all struggle and it can seem as if there is no one to rescue you from your circumstances. It almost paints a picture of someone suffering with depression or an addiction and does not know which way to turn.

A notable track I have favor for is called "Broken Nose, Busted Knee". The energetic tune brings a sensation to the ear and the lyrics are as intoxicating as one drinking scotch on a lonely night. Although I wish that the mixing would be a little better on this project, I still have to say it was enjoyable.

If i had to rate this album on a scale of 1 to 10, I will give it a 7 for sticking to a theme originality and driving the punk sound to new heights.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
