The LeRoi Brothers "Lucky Lucky Me" 1985
Evan Johns joins the LeRoi Bros for 1 LP!
It goes without saying that no one in Austin, Texas' LeRoi Brothers is named LeRoi. Debuting on the unpretentious Check This Action as a trio (singer/guitarists Steve Doerr and Don Leady and drummer Mike Buck) plus a guest bassist, the LeRois set to rocking without ado, reeling off energetically unreconstructed rock'n'roll/R&B covers (plus a few originals that don't slow down the party one bit) in an unmistakable Southwestern accent.
Evan Johns replaced guitarist Don Leady (who went on to form the Tail Gators), Lucky Lucky Me is a full menu of high-energy tunes played for keeps. "Fight Fire With Fire," the zydeco-tinged "The Back Door" and a quick history lesson, "Elvis in the Army," are among the highlights. - Trouser Press
