I have a friend and every once in a while, when the moon is right, she gets this look in her eyes. And when she gets this look in her eyes, I know I want to hang with her most the night. This is her Rock n Roll look. It's a mischievous look. And for a girl who is mostly Country it's a hoedown showdown look. Brent Amaker and the Rodeo will put this look in to my friend's eyes. With a low voice, six strings, a Rock n Roll attitude and Country twang, these guys show us a bad old good time. It's a nice break from the sunny yet o so sensitive serious stud singer/songwriter who is always trying to win your heart with some clever line. No, these guys are not trying too win your heart These guys are cowboys, outlaws, they're not trying to be pretty. They just want to show us a good time by playing some rowdy home grown foot-stompin spaghetti western and that's exactly what this CD does.
Song 1, You're No Good, check out the video for it at www.brentamaker.com, if you like it, you'll like the whole CD.
Song 2, I've Got a Little Hillbilly in Me, will resonate with anyone whose ever had visions of dawning a cowboy hat and swinging around a hay stack with a lovely, or handsome, buck, or duck, or whatever. If this is true for you, don't worry about those stuffy Seattleites, you are safe here.
Song 3, Sissy New Age Cowboy, there are many who wouldn't like this song, but who cares I like it. Some lines, "you keep singing pop songs / and taking photo ops / you're a sissy new age cowboy country buck" and "you can take your entourage and stick it up your ass / the rodeo has got my back" continuing on, "if you don't like my attitude / then step rite up / and I'll give you a big fat one you can suck."
With 10 songs, some excellent back-up vocals (nice job guys), straight forward spaghetti-western guitar riffs and lay-em down take-em down lyrics Brent Amaker and the Rodeo set the stage for the showdown. Are you ready for the draw?
