Rhino Bucket: Who's Got Mine

There are some bands that you just have to think belong in a place like Sturgis. Bikers, babes, booze and...Rhino Bucket! These hard rockers unleash their sixth studio album Who's Got Mine with all the good time, foot stompin' blue collar feel of heavy metal that any fan of old AC/DC will instantly relish in. Lead singer Georg Dolivo could be the second coming of Bon Scott and they use this to their maximum advantage in this ball busting return to the days of guitar driven metal that is sorely missed in this day and age. Not only that but these guys do so with a wit and humor that will surely bring a smile to the face with their tales of middle class excesses and depravity.

They have just a bit of that Southern Rock feel to them. From the opening song "Message In My Bottle" and especially "Back To Nowhere" and "Drive Thru Liquor" Rhino Bucket grinds out some real redneck rock and roll. This is by no means a bad thing. Just think of Jackyl with more style and brains. This is American music of the rowdiest kind and will fuel all sorts of debauchery.

It doesn't stop there either. Georg does a little bit of storytelling with the sad tale, (tongue firmly planted in cheek), "Lifeline". They also give you one of most enduring odes to the attributes of larger women since "Whole Lotta Rosie" with their anthem "Rare Beauty". I have to tell you I haven't chuckled so much with an album in a very long time. These guys bring you that kind of humor that makes you crack a smile even though you really don't want to. Kind of like Larry the Cable Guy put to music. You will enjoy them but just don't want everyone to know.

I received this disc a few weeks ago. Since then I have been listening to it every chance I can. While they might not bring you anything out of the ordinary, they are just the thing to cure what ails you. This is a dose of the kind of musical medicine that does chase the blues away. So if things are going wrong, this is a disc to throw in. For that matter if things are going right this one is still a lot of fun. There is something that cannot be denied about this type of good old fashion rock and roll, it is a musical miracle drug that should be taken in large doses!!
