MOJO RIB

BandRockMetal

The soundtrack to Satan's strip club.

Biography

"Rock 'n roll has been in need of a triple-bypass for about ten years," says Mojo Rib lead singer Jay Sosnicki, "And we're the guys holding the scalpel."

Damn straight. Mojo Rib's music is rock 'n roll the way it was meant to be played: high octane and 100% irony-free. Imagine the bastard child of AC/DC, Van Halen and Evel Knieval, and you'll begin to get the picture...

One of Los Angeles' most exciting draws, the Rib continues to win new converts daily with its driving, anthemic music and nitro fuel-injected stage shows. “The name Mojo Rib describes what we do perfectly,” says Sosnicki, “Part magic, part junk food. A tailgate party for the ears!”

Featuring Sosnicki on vocals, Joe Favazza & Stephen Fahlsing on guitars, Michael White on bass, and dangerous Don McCurdy on drums, the Rib is a classic five-piece lineup that speaks loud and clear to the hard rock fan of 2008; check out their latest release, IN FOR SIN (2007) and see why Kerrang! magazine has hailed them "rock-Gods-in-waiting."

"The records kicks ass, but the live show is where it all happens," says Sosnicki, "What we do is like the most ballzout keg party you'll ever see. And the whole neighborhood is invited."

Are you ready to believe in rock ‘n roll again?

Then dig into the mighty Mojo Rib!

Lyrics

L.A. HOT WAX

Written By: (Sosnicki-Favazza)

I'm ready, lord I'm ready, with a fuel-injected monster machine
I'm ready, yeah I'm ready, paycheck in my pocket burnin' holes in my jeans
Yeah were getting evil on a Saturday night in a chrome-plated shrine to Athena
And I fly like a thief across the Cloverleaf burning out past Pasadena

I'm ready, lord I'm ready, touchin' heaven while I'm changing lanes
I'm ready, yeah Im ready -- Lojack, and mudflaps, and hand-painted flames
I got a pair of fuzzy dice and some Mexican rims on a chrome-plated shrine to Athena
And I fly like a thief across the Cloverleaf burning out past Pasadena

I'm ready, I'm ready, red-hot burnin' desire
I'm ready, lord I'm ready, babys in the back and my pants are on fire!
Best believe were getting evil on a Saturday night in a chrome-plated shrine to Athena
And I fly like a thief across the Cloverleaf burning out past Pasadena

Hot Wax / Hot Wax / L.A. Hot Wax

I'm ready, I'm ready, lord knows I'm ready, etc.

PAYBACK FOR THE MUDSHARK

Written By: (Sosnicki-White)

When we roll into town, there's gonna be a riot / Meet me for a drink at the Sunset Hyatt
The show was rockin' let's celebrate / Like Vanilla Fudge back in '68
It's just payback for the mudshark now

15th floor is groupie heaven / Beer 'n ciggies from the 7-11
Pour some whiskey and powder your nose / Turn up the stereo 'n take off your clothes
It's just payback for the mudshark now

Somebody call out the fire brigade / And leave a l'il something for the chambermaid
The worm is turning, the tables are flying / The girls are shakin', the boys are lyin'
It's just payback...

You wanna party, well grab a beer / You need a fishing pole, I got one here!
It's just payback for the mudshark now

You want it all, but you got no money / It's on the house, so come on honey
It's just payback for the mudshark now

BITCH MAGNET

Written By: (Sosnicki-Favazza)

Met you at the airport on a South-bound flight
Soft and warm and round and oh so tight
Baby, you've got the hook

You set to runnin' but I cant keep the pace
A furtive kiss, or a slap in the face
Six of one, half a dozen, all the same

They say you've got to live before you die
And there's a thing or two that you and I could try
So come on now lets howl to beat the band
And with some luck it'll all get out of hand

Baby you're a Bitch Magnet

We caught a taxi on DeLancey Street
The driver won't see nothin' but the tips of your feet
I'm slick like that, just like Fred Astaire

They say you've got to live before you die
And there's a thing or two that you and I could try
So come on now let's howl to beat the band
And with some luck it'll all get out of hand

Baby, youre a Bitch Magnet

LUCKY IN THE ORDER

Written By: (Sosnicki-Simon)

Thirty years old, and a nine-to-five wage slave
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
So sick and tired, gotta find me a better way
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
I just don't understand our cultural melee
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
I'm not into sprorts and I've never liked crudité
(Havin' a breakdown)

So come on, come on, time is getting shorter
And not everbody is lucky in the order

My family and friends they just don't agree
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
They say that my obsessions will be the end of me
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
When I'm chasing a song through a tangle of eaves
(Havin' a breakdown, havin' a breakdown)
Up until dawn, my mind under siege
(Havin' a breakdown)

So come on, come on, time is getting shorter
And not everbody is lucky in the order

Break / Breakdown / Break / Breakdown

So come on, come on, time is getting shorter
And not everbody is lucky in the order

DIXIE WITCH

Written By: (Sosnicki-Favazza)

Couldn't come round no more after what you said
Got the San Fernando Valley porno dread
I don't know what you're thinking, and I dont know what you been drinking
You been strutting around this place like a queen but this ain't no goddamn fashion show

You're a Dixie Witch no matter what you say

Couldn't come round no more after what you said
Traded my love for a song and some rock star head
First time is your mistake, second time is mine
You've been givin' it away all over town dont think I can't smell it on you

You're a Dixie Witch no matter what you say
