I say this a lot, but it always bears repeating (at least until I no longer hear generic band names). A good way to catch the attention of a potential listener is to have a unique and catchy name. Like Wobbly Bob. Let’s face it. That’s not a name you’re likely to forget. Speaking of names you’re not likely to forget, here are just a couple titles from the album Life Lessons for Losers (click the picture to listen):
- “Let’s Get Wasted” (if this song doesn’t get the party started, I’m not sure what will)
- “Captain Hellyeah!”
- “That’s What She Said.”
This is a band I found randomly on Bandcamp and was immediately hooked. This is a band that has shared the stage with The Toasters (among many others) and it’s easy to see why. Like The Toasters, this band plays an infectiously upbeat brand of ska. Speaking of infectious, Life Lessons for Losers includes a song that should be an anthem for every poor working stiff that sits in a cubicle all day staring at a computer screen. Yes, I know it’s Saturday, so you’re already living for the weekend, but try this next Friday. Put this song on in your cubicle and sing it at the top of your lungs. It will make your day better and it will improve the day of anyone that sings along with you.
So, do I like Wobbly Bob? Absolutely, but I also feel it’s only fair to warn you that you will want to dance and sing when you hear it. Make sure you’re in a place where you can do both when you play this album.
