Toadies: Todd Lewis (vocals, guitar); Darrel Herbert (guitar); Lisa Umbarger (bass); Mark Reznicek (drums). Recorded at Record Two Mendocino, Mendocino, California and Sunset Sound Factory, Hollywood, California. If you swear by Faith No More, if the musical stylings of those fun-loving Chili Peppers really get the blood moving through your veins, if the Sex Pistols are your idea of a great band from the past (and why shouldn't they be)--well, podna', allow us to introduce you to Toadies. No, not The Toadies. Just Toadies, thank you, and leave your eardrums at the door. This Fort Worth hard-core quartet serve up a singular brand of punky blues: lots of noisy, guitar-centered songs, and a healthy dose of irony. In other words, these guys don't take themselves too seriously, and RUBBERNECK is all the better for it. Take Possum Kingdom, in which Todd Lewis pitches his woo with more than a hint of sarcasm--or is it I'm not gonna lie/I'll not be a gentleman/Behind the boathouse/I'll show you my dark secret... Behind the boathouse, behind it all, the band churns, slow and funky, while a whining, circular guitar riff almost seems to mock the proceedings. There's more than a little Nirvana influence--Andy Wallace, who worked on that band's seminal Nevermind, also did the mixing chores here. This is Alternative Rock that doesn't sound like all the other Alternative Rock out there, mainly because the band has a knack for stringing together simple but devastatingly effective rock hooks. Witness Tyler, another track that showcases Toadies' ability to explode out of a spare, bass-driven pulse, into a brutal wash of cloudy guitars and loops of feedback.
