Product Notes

A few years have passed since a punk and blues trio has showed up with a sound big enough to earn the badge 'Power Trio'. From the opening roll of a snare drum, Johnny Campbell drives this trio all over the rhythm and blues mountainsides of the raw California sound. 'Reap What You Sow' leaps out of the starting gate with the crisp undercharge of a big belly bass sound and the guitars come in like splitting wires in a lightening storm. The power of the group is held together by it's strong rhythm. 'I'm Sorry' builds on the momentum created by that big rhythm section with the percussion of Campbell, the stylist innovation of bass guitarist Mark 'Mooka' Rennick and Ross Miller's scrapper vocals, resulting in a cross country musical ride on a midnight American train. Rich in vocal harmony, and with a simple haunting rhythm section holding steady behind Miller's wild-storm music, 'Isabella' shows the raw tender inner soul of singer and creator Ross Miller at his tormented best. He sings as if he's holding on to his mic stand like it was a rock to hold onto in a flooding lyrical torrent. The harp slowness in 'Davey and Ronnie' is reminiscent of the river flowing through New Orleans on a Sunday morning, and we hear the fondness of the 'Jostle' creators for the music of that soulful city. 'Let it Ring' lives up to it's title and shows why a three-chord progression is still the best way to frame the friendly sound of a railroad harmonica rolling across America. The trio screams behind the mercurial slide guitar on the next number, 'Never Comes Back'. Miller's vocal desperation leaps on the recording stage as if jumping from the ceiling on 'Take it Turn it'. Rennick's bass and Campbell's enormous drumming drive the mixture of Wah-Wah and electric charge to the brink of oblivion. With the power to drive a small plane through a storm, the group shows us just how far we can go without flying off the edge. 'Bring it Back' kicks off the trio's courageous blues, holding us steady in river-nights' arms. A melodic cruise, the comforting soul we visit when life's spices are out of reach. 'Missing You' center stages the simple brilliance of a Fender Stratocaster in it's full glory. On 'Baby', Rennick's skill as riveting bass innovator shines again. Those sounds he gets from his guitar seem to parachute out of the plane on a dark night. Just how does he do that? 'Machine Gun Kelly' blends Miller's acoustic elegance with a simple bass line following along like an old friend. '10th Time', the final song of this punchy trio, leaves us thinking that after listening to 'Jostle', one could predict rock and roll trios coming back in big-time style. 'Jostle' would then be a coveted collectors' standard of the industry. Listening to 'Jostle', we take the long drive along the Northern California coastline on a full moon night. The soul of the ocean road and Ross Miller's band are always working on music, all of the rhythm of the night playing along. Recorded at Prarie Sun Recording Cotati, California. All songs except 'Machine Gun Kelly' are copyrighted by SLM Music. Written by Ross Miller, Miller and Rennick, and Miller and Campbell.
