PB Army, The : Inebriates, Equivocators and Mockers of the Devil Himself

The best albums are those that are quiet (or loud, as the case may be) acts of defiance. Owning these records, listening to them at parties when everybody else wants to hear the hits of the day, despite your insistence that you're actually listening to the hits of tomorrow, is part of what keeps rock and roll alive. Bands such as The PB Army also keep rock and roll alive with their unfashionable, dirty mudflap sound, their irreverent lyrics and general out-of-step-with-the-times-ness.

"Acres Of Tires" is a kind of Foghat throwback, while elsewhere the band sounds like a dust-covered and road-weary updated version of the mighty Sabbath and even, once or twice, Black Oak Arkansas (dig the gorgeously ugly riffing that is "The Motherlode" for all of this rolled into one). And while some of those references would be lost on some of today's "stoner" bands, the occasional group that believes the genre started with Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, listening to this release, you get the sense that The PB Army are so much wiser than all that.

Get this now and drive your friends away with "The Eye Is On You," or "Circle The Wagon," then keep them away with "Life On The 30th Floor," as brilliant a song as any that have come down the pike in recent years, forget what genre. After all, they're only friends and this is rock and roll.
