Escape Velocity is defined as the speed required to leave a body. Sounds cool, but let's be honest: this Escape Velocity is the product of a pushing-forty, married-with-children rocker named Joe Thebeau, his Affton, Missouri basement, some current members of Prisonshake, an abundance of imagination and some formidable songwriting. Finn's Motel draws on classic power pop and prime, midwestern rock (think Cheap Trick or The Replacements) but never sounds formulaic. Escape Velocity is psychedelic without the wah-wah pedals; instead sudden shifts in time and perspective take the music to new places. These songs are dynamic, unpredictable, visionary and stuck-in-your-head-for-days infectious.  Escape Velocity was written, engineered and produced in Thebeau's basement but sounds nothing like a basement recording -- thanks largely to studio savant Adam Schmitt, who mixed most of the tracks.   Expect this to have a higher profile than usual for a Scat release. The label considers it a top priority and will invest in publicity and marketing to a greater extent than ever before. In May and June, a four-song teaser for the album was distributed to fans and people really connected with it. The band will play regularly and this album is sure to be a significant 2006 release.
