Cub Koda i~s
Hot to Rock

By Joe Hoppe
CUB KODA'S definition of a good
time: A packed bar on a Friday
night when everybody is hot to rock and
ready to get laid.
Actually, Cub is a little brighter than
his definition seems to imply. Here is a
man who spent the latter part of the
seventies with a Detroit hard rock band
(Brownesville Station) responsible for
a pre-punk hit entitled "Smokin' in the
Boys Room" that paid the bills and
mortgage for about six long years. His
past record seems blemished, but he's
proud of it and and anxious to pursue
different rock 'n' roll goals.
For the past three years he has been
playing electric blues with a style and
sound that closely resembles Dave
Edmunds and George Thorogood. His
records thus far, an album and an EP,
have been highly acclaimed and his
just-released sequel seems about as
promising. Playing with the late Hound
Dog Taylor's Houserockers, the stage

show is dynamic, full of diversity, and
generally rowdy and electrifying. He
currently stands in the forefront of the
recent "roots rock revival" and his en-
tourage of dedicated devotees is rapidly
increasing.
Cub Koda as a normal human being is
quite an interesting person. He writes
sporadically for Goldmine magazine, a
publication directed at record collectors
and his fine mixture of crude human
and exasperating wit add spice to the
popular column. The Rolling Stone
Book of Lists includes his 10 rules of
rock 'n' roll; his recent releases prove
that he makes no infractions on these
rules when he performs.
Historical documents in variou$
music mags scattered about the nation
serve as proof that nobody has ever
walked out of a Cub Koda show unhappy
or unimpressed. He appears at Rick's
tonight and early scouting reports iri-
dicate that the bar will definitely be
blazing with action and excitement.
Thorogood fans are given special en-
couragement to attend.

'l'

Houserockers-'It's the
Blues!' (Baron Records)
"We're just gonna do this to check
some sound, like . . ." says Cub Koda
(homegrown Michigan farmboy;
Brownsville Station, Cub Koda and the
Points).
And in a reply from the deepest
darkest blues alleys of Chicago, The
Houserockers (the late Hound Dog
Taylor's band, along with Lefty Dizz,
Left Hand Frank, and Mudcat Ward
playing bass) serve up Cub with a fine
rockin' blues album. The "sound
check" became volume one, so there's
more to come, and It's the Blues. Cute
way to begin an entertaining work.
Cub Koda has always been interested
in blues, roots rock and rockabilly, and
it looks like now he's doing what he
really wants to do. It sounds like now
he's doing what he really wants;
everybody on this album is having a
good time. A genuine sincere good time
and not another big rock . star
("Smoking in the Boy's Room" hit
number one) doing the "hey,
everybody, now I am a great and
soulful blues singer" act.
And while it's true blues, it's also a
tribute. Hound Dog Taylor and Howlin'
Wolf are the dedicatees, but the
working-so-hard Mr. Koda is paying
tribute to the music itself just as much.
Hound Dog's Houserockers and Koda
do covers of Howlin' Wolf, Junior
Parker, Jimmy Reed and others. It is
the blues.

Koda's vocals are raw down and dif-
ty; he shouts and growls and it's won-
derful. The band is hot, full of proven
blues men having a good time.
"C'mon, let's do some more, let's do
some more, we've got the brew.. ."
Side one's best offering is J.B.
Lenoir's "Mamma Talk to Your
Daughter," a quick blues shout number
with Koda and Brewer Phillips doing
the words. So much energy it has to stop
after two minutes.
More favorites on the other side.
"Tough Times" is a rough lament over
the current economic state with a ban-
shee wailing guitar thoughtfully
provided by Lefty Dizz. "Bright Lights
Big City" is a sweet, short "everybody
sings" song that does a lot to enhance
our "bunch of caring musicians enr
joying each other's company" image of
this album being recorded in one sit-
ting. (That's just an ,impression, not
necessarily the truth.)
It's the Blues even has a novelty song
(surprisingly tolerable). "The Dirty
Duck Blues" tells the poignant story of
a '54 Gibson guitar carryin' duck in a
three-piece polyester suit that sits in
one night at a blues club in Chicago.
The duck sings B.B. King's "Sweet Six-
teen." Koda seems to like this kind of
thing a lot; anybody remember "Mar-
tian Boogie"?
Koda is serious about the blues; with
current times being what they are,
who's to say a white boy from southern
Michigan shouldn't be singin' the
blues e- -Joe Hoppe
