Denver Rock City’s Bud Bronson & Good Timers are here to do two things; kick out some jams, and drink some beers; And brother, there’s plenty of both to go around! On their newest album “Fantasy Machine”, these boys-done-good double down on no BS Arena Rock riffage and the call-me-the-breeze attitude of Southern Rock heroes like 38. Special and Lynyrd Skynrd, the fun power pop of Cheap Trick and REO Speedwagon, then pour cheap beer and partied out punk rock down its’ throat in a beer bong! Screaming dual lead guitar solos and Souther-fried fretboard runs thunder over a booming rhythm section, as vocalist Brian Beer relates raging party tales stories and fun and self deprecating advice on life, turning the music of Bud Bronson into more “good times” than any living human being should ever be allowed to have.
With snoozer Classic Rock revivalists like Thousand Horses and Wolfmother taking on the self aggrandizing, overly somber and frankly boring aspects of greats like Led Zeppelin or the Who, it’s refreshing to see a group who takes what they need from a storied time in rock n’ roll without xeroxing it, sticking it in $300 stonewash jeans and regurgitating it to the masses.
Bud Bronson & the Good Timers are a fresh wrinkle in time. The sonic equivalent of a DIY punk flophouse show in Eric Foreman’s basement. And most importantly, American as apple pie soaked in Bud Light, scooped up and brought to you by a bald eagle. Let the good times roll.
