Skysaw, a band formerly known as This, is the latest vehicle for ex-Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. Chamberlin, plus cohorts Mike Reina and Anthony Pirog, will be augmented by Paul Wood and Boris Skalsky of NYC indie rockers Dead Heart Bloom on upcoming live dates. Skysaw’s debut album “Great Civilizations” will be with us in May on Dangerbird Records, and the lead track is a tightly constructed chunk of melodic rock music. “No One Can Tell” is nicely and concisely done. It’s tuneful and intricate, yet doesn’t trip over into proggy hysteria.
