RIYL: The Bicycle Thief, Thelonious Monster
Label: Greenway Records
The great LA legend Bob Forrest has a resum√© that would make most most of us blush. ¬†He was a key ingredient in the LA scene in the 1980s, sharing the stage with¬†The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Fishbone, Guns ‘N Roses and many more.¬† He fronted Thelonious Monster, one of the most criminally underrated groups to come out of LA in the 80s and 90s, he survived an¬†absolutely bonkers smack addiction and now counsels other folks with the same afflictions. ¬†Needless to say,¬†he has a lot to share in his music and has lived through practically everything. ¬†A more honest songwriter I have heard not.
Greenway Records has produced a truly special live album with acoustic renditions of some of Bob’s best work, playing alongside past and present bandmates. ¬†It’s a celebration of life and survival. ¬†If you’re as overjoyed as I am that Bob Forrest is still on this spinning rock with us, pick this record up. ¬†It’s on gorgeous splatter vinyl and limited to only 200 copies.
