Drunk

by Uncle Leon and the Alibis

Honky Tonk, our way: Simple stick-to-your-ribs rhythms, raw guitars, and a bipolar baritone with a voice like fermented honey, crooning about the things in life that really matter--drinking, heartache, big butts, and monster trucks.
Genre: Country: Country Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Part urban philosopher, part poet and (probably) part time beer abuser, Uncle Leon brings us his unique perspective on life through his music. Nothing fancy about this album. Simple production, simple arrangements and simple honky-tonk powered fun. Never would guess they were from Brooklyn.

The songs are wryly funny. Uncle Leon is one straight talking guy who sings in the Johnny Cash style. "Hot Rod Mamas" serenades the kind of women that we guys really like, and they are not the kind that society tells us we should like. He's got a sentimental side too. "Drugstore Roses" is a touching tale of love and devotion (and beer). The spirit of real country music lives. "I Hate My Job" regales us with commentary on the inequities suffered by the working man. "Big Idea" is a true country classic that would have made George Jones proud. "Telegraph Road" steps up the tempo. "Beer Train" is a salutary reminder that we should not take things for granted and there are heroes everywhere.

The killer track is "Me 'n' Hank". Multinational marketing machines can take the best music in the world and package it like cornflakes. Uncle Leon & The Alibis tell it like it is with the story of what would happen should the late, great Hank Williams be trying to make it in the business today.

We laughed. We sang along. We drank some more beer. We danced like only drunk men can. The fun has truly been put back into music. It is guaranteed to put you in a better mood than even beer. If your doctor tries to prescribe you anti-depressants, just tell him that you don't need no drugs. You need a shot of Uncle Leon & The Alibis. Along with a dozen drugstore roses and a six pack of beer. It's the cure for what ails you!

Beer, butt's and rock and roll
Hay ..YOU .....YES............YOU.......BUY THE CD NOW!!!!!!
I did sound in a bar for two years and I can tell you I heard some really bad stuff.
NOT "Uncle Leon and the Alibis" this is as close as you can get to the live show and worth every penny.
Major MAX the "Wicked chicken of country music" go's nut when I put on this CD.

Hotpants

ROCKIN'!
Had it not been for "Roller Derby Saved My Soul" (and me being a Derby girl) I would never have discovered the beauty that is "I hate my Job" (good for cranking on the way to work) and "Hot Rod Mamas."
This CD rules!!

Here comes the beer train!
This album is just plain FUN. It's a portable party you can carry with you anywhere, pull it out, play it and smile. I do a lot of driving and "Blue Sky & Blacktop" is my favorite road song. "Beer Train" and "I Hate My Job" are great party songs, and their country version of "Baby Got Back" is not to be missed; it'll have everyone up and dancing in no time. I love every song on this album, there's not a lame one in the batch.

Yee Haw
This CD really ROCKS. Too bad there isn't a rating for 6 stars. Uncle Leon and the Alibis are a one of a kind act. I hope they produce more rocking CDs like this one.
