Water All Around

"Water all around...never learn how to swim now." This site is devoted to great alternative music. Like "Swingin' Party" by the Replacements from which the aforementioned lyrics hail. These posts are intended to introduce visitors to bands that I believe deserve greater attention. If you wish to have an MP3 removed, email me at zotzedwriter@yahoo.com.

Bobby Bare, Jr.

To me, Bobby Bare Jr. is countrified Paul Westerberg. He writes music with all the hallmarks of the Mats’ singer/songwriter: wit, pathos, self-effacement, and a likeable crudity. Indeed, the lyrics of “Let’s Rock ‘n’ Roll” could have been penned by PW in his early days. One noticeable difference: Bare Jr. can get darker and more macabre than Westerberg as evidenced in “Valentine.” (Interestingly, Westerberg also has a song about unrequited love titled “Valentine”).
