Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Left Behind”

October 15, 2019 at 6:13 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Left Behind” by Another Animal.

Another Animal is the result of a hard rock supergroup formed by members of Godsmack, Dropbox and Ugly Kid Joe.

Another Animal came about due to writer’s block for Godsmack‘s vocalist and songwriter. Godsmack‘s lead guitarist Tony Rombola, drummer Shannon Larkin, and bassist Robbie Merril joined up with Ugly Kid Joe‘s lead singer Whitfield Crane and Dropbox‘s guitarist Lee Richards. The result: Another Animal. They only made one album, Another Animal, however they did release a new single in 2011 called “Fall of Rome”. If you like “Left Behind” I’d also recommend checking out “Broken Again”.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Let Them Eat Rock”

October 8, 2019 at 6:42 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Let Them Eat Rock” by The Upper Crust.

I found this one via Pandora through my Krokus station. The Upper Crust does a superb job of channeling AC/DC (Bon Scott era) without lifting guitar riffs. They even capture the same lyrical charm even while being a parody band.

If you like that one, there’s plenty more. The Upper Crust has been around since 1995 with their 18th century aristocratic fop outfits complete with stage names like Lord Bendover (Nat Freedberg, guitar and vocals), Count Bassie (Chris Cote, bass), The Duc D’istortion (Dave Fredette, guitar) and Jackie Kickassis (Jim Janota, drums). The Boston band has done seven albums over the years with their last one in 2017, and they’re still doing live shows. “Let Them Eat Rock” is off their first album of the same name.
