ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robby Roadsteamer (born Louis Robert Potylo, September 3, 1976) is a Boston-based musician/comedian/performance artist. Roadsteamer has straddled the line between comedy and music for the past seven years, performing at comedy clubs and in rock clubs with his band or as a solo performer. He\'s seen the worst of both worlds - good bands and good comedians struggling to be heard over the din of wannabes. Originally the lead singer of the band the Sweatpant Boners which was a metal/punk band formed with Ken Susi of Unearth and Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage. They released one album in 2001 titled \"Cruising With The Masters\". Roadsteamer formed his own band in 2005 called Robby Roadsteamer and has toured the United States behind his album Postcards From the Den Of Failure, including the Warped Tour. The band received praise when it came in second in the WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble, including press in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald. Roadsteamer received nationwide radio airplay and was featured on VH1\'s Best Week Ever for his single \"I Put a Baby In You.\" Roadsteamer is a disc jockey on WBCN, and his street team is known as the Street Steamers.

Roadsteamer\'s band has been nominated for \"Live Band of the Year\" at the Boston Music Awards three times. During the 2006 ceremony, while presenting \"local song of the year\" (for which he was nominated), he stated that the Boston Music Awards was a \"plastic piece of shit,\" and that \"everyone knows the winners ahead of time.\" Roadsteamer asked to present the trophy to the winners, The Snowleopards, when he instead declared himself the winner and fled the venue with the trophy.

In December of 2007, Robby Roadsteamer released \"LRP,\" an acoustic album that marked a departure from the mock \'n\' roll of his band, Roadsteamer, and the arrival of a hilariously brutal singer-songwriter. The soul-crushing aspects of the Boston music scene are a major theme of \"LRP\" and something Roadsteamer knows too well. Three months later he released The Most Pretentious Album Since Axl\'s, a reference to the lead singer of Guns N\' Roses, Axl Rose, and in a move reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead he released his third solo album \"This Album Syncs Up To ToeJam And Earl\" free on his website roadsteamer.com on May 12th 2008. He calls the three acoustic albums a trilogy and made YouTube videos for each one.
