NEW ALBUM! Webb Wilder

There's actually very few like him.

There's actually very few like him.

Webb Wilderlast of the full grown men and all that – has a brilliant new album out called More Like Me. I’ve been a long-time fan of Webb’s bubbling cauldron of roots-rock, surf-rock, country twang, r&b, garage punk, powerpop…oh, damn, the guy can play anything. He cross-pollinates the musical DNA so thoroughly that you’ll just have to strap in and trust him with the wheel.

For me, it all started with “How Long Can She Last?” and I haven’t looked back since. He’s released several strong albums over the years, but this new one might be his best. Read my review of More Like Me in Blurt Magazine.

Who is Webb Wilder?  Damned if I can nail it better than this video.

I guess we should really call this his WEBBsite.

Webb and The Beatnecks rip through Ian Hunter‘s “Big Time”.

Clips and information aplenty at Webb’s MySpace page and Wikipedia page.

The recent DVD Tough It Out captures a great live show and comes with a bonus audio disc. Sweet!

“Work hard. Rock hard. Eat hard. Sleep hard. Grow BIG.

Wear glasses, if ya need ’em…”
