Sent by John N as a completer for the earlier Beachbuggy post.......Groop Dogdrill released a couple of albums after Beachbuggy had called it a day, And John has done us a favor AGAIN by sending to us for our inspection.......first we have 1998's "Half Nelson", quite a decent effort ....with it's rocakbilly undertones it might remind you perhaps of Reverend Horton Heat or somebody like that, but basically what we here is "good time, party" rock n roll, and nothing wrong with that.....
They released a (somewhat) similar effort, "Every Six Seconds", actually a more sophisticated writing effort to say the very least,
which is respectable as well.....the band's semi-obsession with Americana and American Culture (The Rolling Stones did the same thing, although a LOT more skillfully, obviously) make the songs somewhat interesting, and keep ya listening to the lyrics. All in all, you could do a LOT worse than to grab these, if you're just looking for, you know, something "different", ???
