Page France

"The Ruby Ring Man"

This song reminds me of the 60s. No, I wasn’t alive, but everyone has their own impression of what the 60’s was like. “The Ruby Ring Man” makes me think of what rock and roll may have sounding like before it became classic rock. Imagine Bob Dylan crooning over a slightly sped up version of The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning” and you might get the picture. And while the pre-classic rock statement may be slightly overreaching, I can’t help but think of how many rock bands were influenced by VU before they actually rocked. … And The Family Telephone, the bands third full-length in three years, is filled with the same earnest, easygoing vibe heard on “The Ruby Ring Man.” It’s pretty refreshing to hear something as honest and simple as Page France, especially within the array of over-produced music and we’re-so-important posturing. It’s sort of like starting from the beginning.
