Pay Dirt (PC Music, 1998) is another solid collection of southern
songs, with a stronger melodic emphasis:
the catchy and sprightly She's Got a Lot of Nerve,
Call Me When You Find My Number, which is basically bubblegum pop,
and especially King Death.
Dash Rip Rock's drummer Fred LeBlanc formed Cowboy Mouth with three veteran
musicians and veered towards an adult kind of roots-rock that often sounds
like 1970's country-rock. Despite the change of course,
the standout track on Word of Mouth (Domino, 1992) is Jenny Says,
a Dash Rip Rock classic.
Everyone Is Waiting is the faster, louder and stronger song on
It Means Escape (Monkey Hill, 1994).
Are You With Me (MCA, 1996) is a disappointing sell-out of these two
albums' good ideas.
Recyclone (Alternative Tentacles, 2005) is a career retrospective
that includes all the classics, and some top-notch rare tracks:
their early Ramones-ian anthem Let's Go Smoke Some Pot (that paraphrases
a 1950s hit),
the old-fashioned rockabilly Shake That Girl, a` la Stray Cats,
the breathtaking thrashing psychobilly DMZ,
the speedy country & western Silver Moonlit Rail,
the martial country-pop BFE,
some garage-rock tinged of Mersey-sound such as You Were On My Mind,
the REM-ish ballads Falling Apart and Marsupial,
the power-pop singalong Locked Inside A Liquor Store,
the punkish honky-ronk False Prophet.
Numbers such as
Shootin' Up Signs and Rattletrap
show them at their best, impersonating a marriage of
Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith.
