Influenced by a wide array of bands such as Rush, the Police, Duran Duran, and the Sex Pistols, Elsewhere has developed a smooth, electric and groove-oriented sound that will transcend the wavering music trends of the day. The CD single, Marginal, was a much-anticipated follow-up to the well-received debut album, Outbound, that was released in 1997. The raunchy yet radio-friendly Marginal is more of an over the top power-pop song, while the B-side track Connection demonstrates a nod to that progressive aesthetic Elsewhere continues to pursue. Through airplay on local music radio shows and performances throughout the Northeast, Elsewhere is continuing to attract interest from club audiences, magazines and record labels.
Allen has released a number of recordings (including those famous last songs with Jerry Nolan) and has done some time with the underground in London and New York. He is joined by bass player Greg Steinbaugh (Two Saints, Port Charles Quintet, World's Greatest Sinners, Prime Movers) and drummer Daley Jones (Two Saints in Boston, Middleman Bob, The Press, Trigger Happy in his hometown Seattle).
The music is rock and roll with a nod to all the greats. The band sounds simultaneously familiar and fresh. Hints of classic arena rock, power pop, sleazy glam, proto punk, gut bucket blues and even some country honk serve as backdrop to Allen's unique story telling. Its pure rock and roll, the kind they don't make anymore. Come see Greg Allen's Fringe Religion and restore your faith in rock and roll.
