For more than thirty years the Mud Bay BluesBand has been electrifying Canadian audiences with their unique style of rhythm and blues. Surviving more than their share of trials and tribulations along the way, they have forged a well-deserved reputation as "The Band That Won't Go Away" -- much to the delight of their many fans. Their latest CD release, MUDIFIED, further advances the band's distinctive sound with 13 new original songs capturing all the energy of their legendary high voltage all-nighters. From the whimsy of Mud Bay Slim's "Possum Huntin "' -- which kicks off the album with a tongue-in-cheek tale of workplace mayhem -- to the rough-edged rasp of "Dead End Town", Randall T Carpenter's slice-of-life glimpse into the mean streets of East Vancouver, and Mark Branscombe's "Blue Note", a leisurely swing down the sidewalks of the Big Easy, MUDIFIED spans the spectrum of styles the Mud Bay Blues Band has made their own. The album also features drummer Murphy Farrell's premiere songwriting contribution, "Healing Chamber ", as well as two songs penned by dearly departed former lead guitarist, the late great Peter Draper. And as always, there's more than enough wailing blues harp, razor-edged guitar and hard-driving rhythm to wake the neighbours.
