Mike Cooley once said that rock and roll means well but it can’t help telling young boys lies. The Bear Antler brand of rock and roll is most certainly full of lies but, like a bad lover, it also has a drinking problem, sweats too much, and stays out all night.
The lads of Bear Antler know a little something about bad lovers. They sing about cheating women, lying women, no good women… women that call collect to break up with you. But mostly, they sing about the women they can’t live without. There’s also a few murder ballads for good measure.
It’s not always pretty, but when the groove is right, the pocket is tight, and the lights are bright, you can bet no one is having a better time than the five guys on stage.
What else can you expect from a band that met in a bar?
