BRAND NEW CD: "LOVE THIS COUNTRY"
From the title track "Love This Country" to one of our most requested "We Are Australian" and a hot little instrumental "Couldn't Be Bothered Singin' Song" there will be something for everyone. This CD was a labor of love for the RUCKUS Gang and a change in direction from the previous albums. It shows how the band has evolved and expanded musically together, Mick's even playing banjo and harmonica !!!!
The songs are varied and emotive. "Denim & Dust" a ruckin' tune about B&S Balls, rodeos and people, to a re-recorded "Smiley. What about the Roses" a gentle song about Aussie heartache, resiliance and life.
The CD was co-produced, mixed and mastered by Gavin Parker, a gun at his craft and who's help was immeasurable. www.gavin-parker.com
We hope you all love our new CD.
CD: "The Other Side"
RUCKUS 2nd CD "The Other Side". was another step forward for RUCKUS It consists of 12 songs, 7 of these penned by the band.
It shows a softer side to the band with a couple ballads written after the unfortunate passing of parents of band members, as well as a haunting rendition of the Elvis song "In the Ghetto" It also shows a humorous and lighter side with "Devil went to the pub" and the Neil Young song "Get back to the Country". There is a couple of 'in your face' out there, instrumentals . The CD also has the normal country rockin' songs RUCKUS have built their reputation playing.
