Tales of Drink & Debauchery
"This is a wonderful sampler of the Tampa area music scene...a can't-miss purchase." Curtis Ross, Tampa Tribune "If you want a quick, enriching tutorial in the area's best music - or simply some music to chase down that third shot of JD - you'd be wise to seek out Tales of Drink and Debauchery, a talent-packed compendium." Sean Daly, St. Petersburg Times 'Tales of Drink and Debauchery' features some of Tampa Bay's favorite musicians performing an eclectic mix of rock, pop, blues, folk, latino, bluegrass and hillbilly soul about drink, debauchery and love gone wrong. Here's a tour of the artists on this compilation: "Loser's Lullaby" & "Jack's St. Pete Blues" by Ronny Elliott: "One of the great artists to be found in the margins of the alt-country scene." Dirty Linen "Lyrics that are smart, sentimental, fearless and funny." San Francisco Chronicle "I Should Have Left You A Long Time Ago" & "The Good Girl" by Rebekah Pulley & The Reluctant Prophets: 'Sultry, rootsy tunes steeped in acoustic guitar.' St. Petersburg Times "The Well" & "Charity" by Sawgrass Flats: The infectious Florida Swampgrass of Sawgrass Flats turns any song into a sweet, full-on, barreling-down-the-road jam. "Tabaco Y Ron" & "Timbero" by Gumbi Ortiz & The Latino Projekt: Gumbi Ortiz, Al DiMeola's Grammy-winning percussionist and his hometown band blend the street sounds of Cuba, the Bronx and Tampa Bay. "The Drinking Song" by Cuban Sandwich Crisis: "The quartet's new album infuses big hooks into Irish drinking songs, jazzy folk jams and straight-up pop rock." St. Petersburg Times "Broke Down Engine" by Damon Fowler Group: "Unexpectedly enjoyable blues from the Sunshine State." Blues Review "Song X" & "Fast Eddie, The Cooler King" by Life of Pi: "Sing-along goodness that gets even better with time. Highly recommended." Punk Planet "Eleven Minute Itch" (FCC Warning) by Johnny Zoom Cheerlead Squad: "They drag rockabilly through the garage and across an alley behind CBGB where Lou Reed and The Stones did God knows what." Orlando City Beat "Baddest Mother's Son" (FCC Warning) by The Mojo Gurus: "Beloved Tampa Bay quartet plays a feisty mix of rockabilly punk, blues and Americana." St. Petersburg Times.
