Rolling Stoners (it's easy money)
“Once in a while a band comes along that gives hope that there is still life left in R&R. Such is the case of JoPaul. Some of the influences of this band are easily decipherable. But most of this is truly original; imagine Elvis to The Clash and everything in between and you have some idea of what you’re getting into. "Orlando Blues" a song with a hook so big you'll be saying "how come no one has thought of this before." From what I can tell it's a song about somebody we all know. That somebody, who always has to one better you, who (in his mind) always out does you. All the songs are great, but my favorite is "Don't Cry Hijo" (hijo, meaning little boy). This song deals with everything from child abuse to tattoos, the band is as tight as anything I've ever heard from The Who to Van Halen. Another standout track is "The Exploding Dick"; once again the musicianship on this song is fantastic. Don’t hesitate, download this now. Thank God for Jo Paul. They came to save R&R and succeeded”
