Bobby Ubangi and Barreracudas 45s
Bobby Ubangi is the epitome of fundamental rock n' roll. Active ingredients on this one include: house, four track, instruments that touring bands accidentally left at previously mentioned house, and friends with rudimentary playing skills that like to hang out at previously mentioned house. Short and simple has been Bobby's style for years, and he's sticking to his guns. D~M~R is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Ubangi, as he has been an absolute inspiration to us and the Atlanta music scene. We love you, Bobby! 100 are on blue marble vinyl. Release date is April 28, 2009.
The Barreracudas - New York Honeys 7"
The Barreracudas are part of the new wave of Atlantans strapping on guitars for D~M~R. These dudes have been kicking around Atlanta for years under different titles, and they've finally found a home at the bottom. Congratulations fellas! We've felt like these guys were on to something for a long time, so when they came to us with a new band and these two tracks we were totally sold. It's got a generous dose of 70's bar rock vibe but with quicker tempos and moderately blown out vocals. It's easy to utilize influences from 1970 to '75 and come off like clowns wearing ass hats, but we think The Barreracudas did a great job of avoiding the pretense of the era and getting it right on the money. 100 are on blue vinyl. Release date is April 28, 2009.
