Man, The Rhones totally have it going on. Edgy vibe from the indie side of the equation, but it works with brilliance. Buy their CD so you can say you knew them before......

Quitter: 2004 Records of Mass Destruction


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Rhones

Real rock-n-roll thats utterly dangerous.

It was a reluctant New York fan that coined this phrase after seeing The Rhones perform live. The Rhones mix raw energy, great lyrics, and an unpolished garage sound into a captivating rock stew and performance you wont forget. Spirited, irreverent, whatever eases your conscience but definitely hot. You may even say Detroit meets London in 1969. That works. Track after track, their music is memorable and mesmerizing.

The Rhones is the evolution of Ghettoblaster, which was formed by lead singer Rob Wofford, bass guitarist Heath Lanyon, and some former members. After moving to L.A. and signing with Elektra Records, Ghettoblaster recorded a half million dollar record, only to become a victim of budget cuts.

Not letting the Elektra setback faze them, lead guitarist Andy Putnam and drummer Matt Long joined Wofford and Lanyon to form The Rhones. The new lineup with the new name and new sound headed to New York for a short stint of shows. After hitting the Big Apple, The Rhones headed back to their native Missouri to record another record this time independent style with Records of Mass Destruction. Their latest record, Quitter, is available now on RMD. These boys are always writing; they're a constant flow of great new music.

In addition to their rough edgy sound, and energetic live shows, The Rhones have industry experience. As well as being signed to Elektra, they've been produced by the likes of Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age) and Jim Wirt, and worked in the studio with Wayne Krammer (MC5), Rolan Bolan, John Salvatore Scaglione and DJ Swamp. They�ve played with well-know acts such as Sparta, Mars Volta, Incubus, and a solo Dave Navarro. And they've played lots of major events including SXSW and CMJ, and venues from L.A. to New York. Their music video for Move Fast was in the top 10 of MTV's Best Music On Campus.

The Rhones are motivated, talented, and their music is a breath of fresh air in a polluted music scene. Like the fan in New York, even if you don't want to like The Rhones you will. Their music is raw rock and roll, tossed into a blender and set on dangerous.
