I was looking around Facebook a while ago and a friend of mine..STAND UP AND BE NOTICED DONNA SMITH....posted a clip of a band called Rebel Son...I believe it was "You cant turn a whore into a lady"...dug the tune, went for a hunt on the boys and now have a a sizeable collection of their tunes....be warned if you are easily offended, these boys will flip your switch, I shit you not, BUT...if you could give a flying rats about cussing and such, then your gonna fkn love 'em.
Lee Johnson - Guitar & Vocals, Dave Schneider - Bass, Tom Warwick - Drums
the boys are a hybrid honkytonk & rockabilly band based out of Raleigh, NC.
The members are guitarist/singer/songwriter Lee Johnson, drummer Tom Warwick & bassist Dave Schneider, Rebel Son delivers an intense set of finely crafted original songs with a strong homage to the Stars'n'Bars, yep , these lads are rebels to their musical core....all I can say is, get amongst it
Their music, in addition to their display of Southern heritage, is, in reality, defining & expressing the thoughts, feelings & occasional unlawful actions & behaviour of "everyday" people living in an "everyday" world.
Not for the faint-of-heart, Rebel Son will electrify you with a high octane journey as they proclaim...their blue-collar doctrine proudly with little to no regard for your sensitivity.... alienating the easily offended is guaranteed...Basically, they wouldnt have lasted 5 minutes in 70's Queensland
To put it simply, they're a foul-mouthed redneck rock band that just doesn't give a shit.
So, if you think you've heard it all before, you haven't heard anything like this.
