Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
Any band endorsed by Gwar is going to have my ear. That doesn't mean that Dirty Bourbon River Show makes hard rock, although they do seem to have a punk mentality. The band describes its sound as "New Orleans Gypsy Brass Circus" and I am inclined to agree with that description. For the band's seventh release, strangely entitled Volume Four, the brass band throws together a rough mix of funny lyrics, odd time signatures and even odder vocals, backed by horns and percussion. The guys know their stuff, and I can appreciate the musicianship here. The best thing about it, though, is it's all done with a devil-may-care attitude that makes me think that the band is out for a good time and might just entertain you in the process.
