I Love The Fratellis

It's been a stressful week, and I'm in for at least a couple more stressful ones in September. Busy time of year, lots of stuff going on, etc., etc.

But on the other hand, I finally went and bought The Fratellis album and I'll be damned... every song on it is good. Most are great. I can't remember the last time I had that reaction to an album. And then there's this video, which is all kinds of awesome:

Not just because the girls are hawt, but also because I have a fondness for the '40s pinup girl style cheesecake and also, the song is great. Oh, and since my good friend Nate Southard brought it up, I also like Los Lonely Boys. Didn't know they were from Austin, though. And I've only heard one of their songs (the one they were using on promos for Jeff Goldblum's short-lived show), so it's possible the rest of it is crap.

Randy -

Los Lonely Boys are awesome! Give them a try - check them out a iTunes or Amazon. And, The Boys are not from Austin, they're from San Angelo, where they still live.

You really have to try Los Lonely Boys.

Check out their latest CD, SACRED, and if you get a chance see them live. They put on a fatastic show.

There are tons of videos of them on youtube. They have created their own sound, Texican Rock and Roll. It is a combination of SRV, Santana, Hendricks, Richie Valens and their own special magic.

I'll definitely check out some more Los Lonely Boys. I like the song I've heard from them. I was more or less just tweaking my friend Nate for his jab at the band. :)
