LUXURY BOB'S debut CD release "IN FLAGRANTE DELICTO" on SONIC
UNYON is "ALL HITS & NO MRS.!" The Toronto, Ontario based
Singer/Songwriter DONNA KERBEL & her partner in noise crimes
JOHN McMULLIN are possibly the best dynamic pop duo since LEE
HAZLEWOOD & NANCY SINATRA! This influence really shines through
on the first track, "CUT & PASTE!" where you'll find the
talented Ms, Kerbel playing the upright bass while singing with
vocals so sweet that you would think actress JENNIFER TILLY was
whispering sweet nothings into your ear! Just when you think
you're going to get a toothache from Donna's sugar coated vox
box... in comes John McMullin's deep NICK CAVE~like vocal
response that saves the damsel in distress tied to the tracks
from the oncoming train!
WORD OF CAUTION!!!: ..The infectious tunes on Luxury Bob's "IN
FLAGRANTE DELICTO" (Now available on I~Tunes)... will get you
hooked like a bad habit with its arsenal of non~stop pop
sensibilities! Donna Kerbel's inspiring & thought provoking
lyrics are coming from a brutally & beautifully honest place
with just enough humor to keep you laughing in the face of the
devil! In the track "MONKEYS & ANGELS" you just have to love
it when Donna croons ..."HOW COULD YOU DO IT!?!...YOU SUNK MY
BATTLE SHIP!"...and then there is the morbid knee slapper of a
pity ditty called "OLY GOT DEAD" , inspired by a grotesquely
obese longshore ~ man from Vancouver, B.C., who also
moonlighted as a heroin dealer. Oly broke rule number one as a
drug dealer when he chose to get high on his own supply.
Eventually Oly ended up paying the ultimate price!
LUXURY BOB'S band name was inspired from an infamous roadie,
also known as "Luxury Bob", (Who coincidently also died from a
heroin overdose), LUX BOB ran a booze can with the same namesake
in the late 80's, and roadied for Vancouver's legendary punks,
D.O.A., ART BERGMAN's "POISON" (not to be confused with the
American metal band!) , THE SCRAMBLERS etc..
Of the 12 brilliantly produced songs by GENE HUGES on LUXURY
BOB'S debut "IN FLAGRANTE DELICTO" , I honestly can't tell you
which song that I like the best!...The icing on the cake is the
bonus track "DECADENT LOVE" featuring fabulous vocals by JUNO
AWARD winning rebel rouser, ART BERGMAN which fits LUXURY BOB's
chemistry like a pair of fingerless gloves!
