Merry Xmas from Your Ex-Girlfriend
Here is an Austin singer/songwriter whose band, Grub Dog and The Modestos, gives you the best of both worlds: bar band music you can listen to in the morning. He's been compared to Westerberg and Petty, his shows to the Heartbreakers and the Stones. This is loud, no holds barred rock and roll with the added pleasure of refreshingly sweet songs. Grub's first release with the Modestos is Merry Xmas (from your Ex-Girlfriend) a typically gut-wrenching and funny song about loneliness during the holidays. It'll have you nodding in recognition and singing along. The 'b-side' is End of Her Line, a stonesy number about a certain kind of girl in a certain kind of bar. This single is a collector's item, so get it while you can!
