Betchadupa -- Alphabetchadupa

From the Finn Brothers to their Neil's son Liam and his band Betchadupa:

The group's debut full-length from 2002, Alphabetchadupa, has a bit of a post-grunge sound. The band really rocks out at times, which beats their slower numbers easily. Finn has a great voice (he sounds like his dad), but he needs the songwriting to go with it. The first single, "Sleepy News" shows too big a nod to the charts (where they were fairly successful in NZ) and not enough to guts or originality. Nothing really outstanding here, but they might be worth keeping an eye on.
