"Thomas’ first stint in music, decades back, had earned him opening gigs for Stevie Wonder and James Brown among others. He released a series of singles in the 1960’s, including “Pain is the Name of Your Game,” and eventually returned to live in Portland. Last year local drummer and soul DJ Scott Magee called up Thomas and proposed they start a new band. Taking their name from the best-known of Thomas’ singles Ural Thomas & the Pain played a “coming out” show later that year, and were named “Best New Band” in Portland in this year’s Willamette Week “Best New Band” poll." -OPB Music

The Domestics

"The charm of The Domestics lies in the complementary puzzle pieces in Finn and London's fantastic songs, as one writer builds malleable structures while the other effectively imparts his sonic imprint on them. There are lovelorn missives set to infectious rock 'n' roll in songs like "Jenny Says," with Finn and London's liquid harmonies only one small element in the song's overarching catchiness."- Ryan J. Prado (Portland Mercury)
