Bodeco

Bodeco, Louisville Kentucky’s all-time mightiest rhythm machine, according to Jeffrey Lee Puckett of the Courier-Journal, has been performing for over 20 years. The band has been written up in the Chicago Sun-Times, No Depression, the LA Village View, the Louisville Courier-Journal, Spin, the New Review of Records, Raygun, and CMJ New Music Monthly, just to name a few. Fronted by wild man Ricky Feather, joined by bassist Jimmy Brown, “Southside” Freddie Wethington on lead guitar, Gene Wickliffe on drums, and Gary Stillwell on keyboards, you’re in for a gritty/grimy rock’n’roll ride of debauchery. This album is a slinky, raw-edged stew of good old rock’n’roll in the vain of Carl Perkins, the Stones, Bo Diddley, and Booker T., all put together with a smart sensibility. The Kentuckiana Blues Society (KBS) has chosen "Soul Boost" to represent KBS for the 2010 International Blues Challenge Best Self-Produced CD Contest.

Their music is the “kind of thing that motivates people to pack their bags, move to Memphis and jam, man.”—J.R. Griffin, Huh magazine

“Bodeco’s inspiring mix of twang and holler is first rate.”—LA Village View

“Ricky Feather cackles like Screaming Jay, deadpanning like a Nashville rogué, while the band shifts mood at will.”—Michael Wiener, Raygun

“Freakishly authentic, they hark back to that era when hillbillies recorded tinny, scratchy mono 45s for long-gone labels. Their sparse recorded output belies the decades of experience that has made them a well-stoked, freewheeling swamp-rock nightmare. Jimmy Brown chugs like a crack-fueled locomotive beneath the smoky guitar gnarl and the amazing vocals of Rick Feather, who howls like a frenzied, braying Loup-garou on Night Train.”—Rick Reger, the Chicago-Sun Times

They’re “on a par with sheer audio debauchery with acts such as Rev. Horton Heat and Southern Culture on the Skids. The band’s approach to music is refreshingly non-posing and pure, something that the band has learned from its influences and predecessors.”--Mike Breen, No Depression
