Get on the muscle bus, and learn to love this practically unknown band. Country Muscle just wrapped their first show last wednesday, and i ALMOST remembered to go!!

But i do know the band, and when i asked guitarist Ron Ascoli if they were anything like Rockabilly music, he was quick to reassure me that they had NOTHING TO DO with that crapola. So i went to their myspace page, and laughed my ass off.

Not sure how to label these dinks, but i guess you could call them stoner-rock/stoner-punk/stoner-country....
and if that makes any sense to you, GOB BLESS YA.

we need to stop kissing the asses of well known acts, and support local home-grown heroes that are willing to be themselves at all costs.

visit their page, download their free songs, and blast it when your ipod's shuffle feature accidentally lands on it.
