Accelerators, The

One of numerous Southeastern bands nurtured in the Mitch Easter/Don Dixon pop bosom (both men played on the quartet’s first album; Dixon also produced the first and two cuts on the second), North Carolina’s Accelerators blended crisp, energetic, well-mannered rock with a little ‘billy and some mild R&B to give Leave My Heart just enough grit and soul to make it both memorable and charming.

There’s even better-sounding guitar rock on The Accelerators‘ dozen uneven cuts, including a remake of the tuneful Two Girls in Love from Leave My Heart. Duncan and Welchel were the only holdovers from the original line-up.
