“Devil In Disguise”, the new album by ColonBlow, is a fitting description for the band. Spanning several genres, ColonBlow has managed to wrap rock, blues, singer-songwriter type acoustic, and comedy into one album. The album ranges from self-reflection to straight out, hook-laced, good-time Rock & Roll!
ColonBlow formed in the spring of 2006 when Ronney met Jimmy and Joe at a school function. Ronney was already singing in a band called “Out of the Cellar” while Jimmy and Joe had been playing in Jimmy's basement for awhile already. By July they were playing private parties and they had their first bar gig by winter. It didn't take long before Ronney and Jimmy were collaborating on original song ideas and realized that they were quite catchy.
The first song they finished was about having a good time at any cost called Wild Memories. With that song completed, others came easier.
I Like Women is about men trying to figure out women. When does flirting become too aggressive? An age old question with a moving target that men may never figure out.
Empty Wagon treads the fine line between self-rationalization and streaking, where as The Boobie Song is a point blank statement of man's primal obsessions.
The Devil examines how appearances can be completely different than reality, while Let's Get Dirty is a fun look at how the adventurous side sometimes wins over the straight laced.
“Beauty is only skin deep, but it's so damn yummy”, the opening line from Pretty Bitch, looks at how the mind deals with conflicting stimuli.
Ain't Coming Back To Me is a tongue in cheek account of a man's realization that his woman has left him, and The Taco Song is a late night party song of questionable taste.
The album ends on a more serious note with Better Way, which is one man's self-examination of his life and Town Fathers which is an account of men in the life of a small town.
“ColonBlow is what the roots of rock used to be: 1 part edgy, 2 parts catchy, 3 parts stress relieving, sing out loud fun!”
