The best kept secret in music


"Down home rock and roll"

Down home rock and roll, and a sound and lyric that will remind you of a different time. Some refer to them as baby boomers, but frankly this foursome hands us a well thought out political album in an attempt to express their feelings, and the feelings of many others who are not for the war, or Bush, for that matter.

You can go to the bands website and find descriptions of each song, where they come from and much more researched links that will educate any new fan about the political views and feelings behind this band. I have to look past the MP3 quality, listen to the music and lyrics and I found a new appreciation. Even though some will listen to this and by the style be reminded of the war protest songs of the Vietnam era, but this time we have plenty of our own issues to protest against, and Johnny Philko has brought those issues out in song.

The members of this band, obviously close friends, are driving for the same goal. If you are unsure what that is, visit their website and find out. While you are at it, buy the CD at one of the many locations available and really experience the old-time rock and roll with a deliberate edge and desire to do what they are doing. Oh, and while you are visiting their site, check out their music videos. You thought just hearing the music makes an impact? Wait till you see this stuff!

"These guys play rock and roll with a message way above and beyond "buy this, wear that, stop thinking.""

"These guys (and gal) look and sound about as American as one can be, but where's their apathy? Their blind trust in the US government? Well, you'll just have to click on the link and find out. These guys play rock and roll with a message way above and beyond "buy this, wear that, stop thinking." Johnny Philko expects more from its listeners. Find music, and a hell of a lot more here." - DrugWar

"A voice I'll never forget"
