Editorial Reviews

We all know Kevin 'Shinyribs' Russell is a loose cannon. How else to explain covers of R. Kelly's Feelin' on Yo Booty, and Elvis Costello's Indoor Fireworks in the same night. Most folks who follow such things consider his outfit, The Gourds, one of the best live bands in the land, in large part because of Russell's brazen eccentricites and creative syntax. However, the most overlooked thing about Russell is that when he plays it straight - as he does for most of his new Shinyribs record Well After Awhile - the man can produce some of the funkiest and most beautiful roots music on the planet. It's not to say the ''psycholiteranaut w/8 AA batteries-tweed facade-equal parts Waylon Jennings, Robert Rauschenberg and Harvey Korman'' (to quote his Twitter feed) doesn't dig into his bag of twistedness here. But a listen to the straight-up duet Shores Of Gallilee (with Sally Allen), the sweet quasi-fable Who Built The Moon, or the intimate cover of Sam Cooke's A Change Is Gonna Come that closes the record, shows that even when Russell puts aside some of the tricks, he delivers grade-A Country Soul.

I have been spinning this album for months. Almost daily. It's among the few albums that have been released in the last couple of decades that doesn't include a single dud. Although it's a cross-genre list, I'd include it with Spoon's "Gimme Fiction," Ween's "Pure Guava," Simon and Garfunkel's "Bride Over Troubled Water," Willie Nelson's "Red Headed Stranger," and Queen's "Night at the Opera" as an album perfectly crafted.

Add to that the entertaining nature of the music and lyrics, and you have an unbeatable formula for fun. Pure genius, Kev. Good stuff. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Record June 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Shinyribs when a local Austin radio station played Poor People's Store over the air. It cracked me up and got stuck in my head so that I was humming it days later. Eventually I was listening to Old Mad Joy, got hit by an obvious stick, and realized singer for The Gourds and Shinyribs were the same person. Then, a couple of weeks ago, the missus and I were chowing on tacos and beer at El Arroyo (just like in the Pat Green song) and heard some great sounding music coming out of the Mean Eyed Cat bar across the street. It was a wonderful show. Russell's voice and charisma grabs the crowd and insists they have fun. And we did.
The record itself is more serious than I expected it to be. It doesn't have the hilarious Feelin' On Your Booty cover (for licensing reasons I'm sure), but the tracks are solid soulful country blues. It is like the class clown took the teacher's advice and applied himself making a truly great record.

Great music but as i always, SEE them live. If you ever can. While the words are a bit discorted live the show and presention makes it 1,000% better. Go to a concert.

If you like the Gourds, you'll like Shinyribs. Both are headed by Kevin Russell. Both make great music. Another great band riding under the radar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It!!! September 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Have enjoyed many hours of listening to this cd. Heard "who built the moon" and had to have it. The song on the cd is not the one on youtube. The cd doesn't have the background music, but still a powerful song.

Shinyribs seems a little more cohesive than a typical Gourds album. Kev Russel is a great musician and live performer. See these guys live if you ever have the opportunity.
