Consider the name Slobberbone.
Okay, so it’s not the kind of name you’d throw around at a church social, but, hey, when was the last time you were at one of those, anyway?
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Brent Best on the band name: "I thought it was funny when we first named the band. I was sitting on the back lawn with Lee, our old bass player, and the dog was playing with this big ol' bone, and we always called them slobberbones as kids. So I said, 'That’s a nasty-ass slobberbone,' and Lee said, 'That's it!' At the time, it seemed like an innocuous name."
In the beginning, in Denton, Texas, sometime in the mid-90s, Slobberbone was all about playing for friends and free beer. Fortunately, their modest aspirations were quickly thwarted by the growing realization that they had something really special on their hands. Even in his earliest songs, Brent had an uncanny ability to fuse seriously deep subject matter with catchy-as-hell melodies and compelling song structures. Bassist Brian Lane, and drummer Tony Harper are a rock-solid, rhythm section and guitarist Jess Barr can pretty much do as he pleases on his instrument, his trademark being a wickedly fast solo, followed by a one-finger in the air salute to, well, himself.
From Crow Pot Pie, their critically lauded 1996 debut, to Barrel Chested (’97) to Everything You Thought Was Right Was Wrong Today (’01), the band’s first release on New West, the sound and spirit of rock 'n roll has permeated the music. But if rock 'n roll were a neighborhood, Slobberbone has explored and terrorized most every street, alley and cul-de-sac: country, punk, pop, soul, metal.
Slippage, Slobberbone’s 4th album, was recorded by legendary producer Don Smith (Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones), whose experienced hand enabled the band to dig deep into their sound.
Unfortunately, the band broke up in 2004, with Best, Harper and Barr forming The Drams. In 2009, there is a reunion tour.
