Uncle Leon and the Alibis -- Wild Ways

I was at my place of work for 12 hours today. Listening to parents yell at their screw-up children as if I'd never called them to tell them what their kids are or aren't doing.  What I need is a stiff drink and music to accompany it.

Thankfully, Uncle Leon and the Alibis have provided the world with the perfect soundtrack for just such an evening.

(PS -- The above photo is more or less what I look like right now. Ain't no way I'm creating materials for tomorrow. Blurgh.)

I've already told you that Uncle Leon is a band to pay attention to. They have a take-no-prisoners attitude to their music. But that doesn't make them deadly serious. Uncle Leon's wry outlook on life leads to some infectious pop tunes. The band never hits a wrong note -- musically or emotionally. Alternating between thoughtful contemplation ("It Ain't That Easy") to ribald ("Whiskey and Weed and Big-Titted Women"), but never crass.

Fact is, Uncle Leon wants you to have a good time. This is foot-stomping, honky-tonk stuff that's designed to be played live.

Go forth, purchase, and be fruitfully shwasted.

All My Crazy Friends Got Old and Lame
It Ain't That Easy
Whiskey and Weed and Big-Titted Women (my personal anthem)
