Something for all you punks out there. Nobunny is a special kind of cool, and by special, I mean really special. His shows are completely crazy and full of energy. Tucson Weekly best described him as a "horny, drunken muppet". It's one of those few bands that are fun to listen to in general, but it's also something you need to experience live. Like the Aquabats, or GWAR.
Nobunny sounds like early 70s punk, with a little bit of folk and bubblegum pop thrown in sometimes. Vocally he reminds me of a young Mick Jagger occasionally, or even Joey Ramone. He's got A LOT of albums and cassettes out (of which I'm lucky to own one), so I'm not going to review each of them personally, but that's not the point of this blog post. Really the point of this blog post is to bring to light a lesser known artist. Something that I will do occasionally here and there.
There are a lot of different songs I can recommend, but personally I would check out "Blow Dumb" from his recent album. Which is a fun song that reminds me a lot of Lou Reed's solo career and other bands from that era of music. Also check out my personal favorite album of his "Raw Romance". It's a great introductory of his sound, and music.
But if you can't find that, look into his latest release titled "First Blood".
