Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Shame On Me”

July 15, 2019 at 7:18 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Shame On Me” by The Bottle Rockets.

You’ve probably never heard of The Bottle Rockets, but they’re a band worth checking out. I bring to your attention “Shame On Me”, a song with a great sound and good lyrics.

The Bottle Rockets are a Missouri band that have been around since 1992. With thirteen albums including one live album and one accoustic, they have lots to choose from for those music hunters digging into discographies. “Shame On Me” appeared on their 2009 album Lean Forward.

The band features Brian Henneman and John Horton on guitar and vocals, Keith Voegele on bass and vocals, and Mark Ortmann on drums.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Last Time I Saw the Sun”

July 1, 2019 at 6:36 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “The Last Time I Saw the Sun” by The Dead Daisies.

The Dead Daisies is one of the bands I just stumbled across. It started with one song and it lead to another and another and next thing you know, I was plowing through their discography to see what all they had. Now they’re not a band who I can jam out to their entire album, but they have a lot of good songs scattered amongst their albums, like this one.

“Last Time I Saw The Sun” is from their third studio album Make Some Noise which came out in 2016. They’ve got three other albums you can check out with some good songs on all of them. The band’s lineup has changed over the years, but for Make Some Noise they had John Corabi on vocals, Doug Aldrich and David Lowy on guitar, Marco Mendoza on bass, and Brian Tichy on drums.

Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Keep On Swinging”

June 24, 2019 at 4:39 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Sometimes you find a good song but you don’t take the time to check out the album, let alone the band’s full discography. Then one day you do it and you find an absolute gem like this, “Keep On Swinging” by Rival Suns.

This version of “Keep On Swinging” is a live acoustic take on the studio track from their third album Head Down. Rival Sons has a lot of good songs, with a variety of styles. The Long Beach, CA band started in 2009 and currently has six studio albums. They’re formed by Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Mike Miley (drums) and Dave Beste (bass) who replaced the former bassist, Robin Everhart, who was on Head Down.
