'Boo-T ay'
By Adlin Rosil
Daily Arts Wart
T'li bnds name is Bare Jr., and
singer Bobby Ba re, Jr denibs it as,
southern' and roc'k,' but not south-
ern rock'I
This is indeed true as the band
embraces the sensibilities of bth
styles, resulting in an enjoyable pop-
based brew of music. Based in
Nashville, the goup hopes to show tat
there is more to the Nashville music
scene than just country and "southern
rock."
The group is made up of Bobby
Bare, Jr. on vocals and gitar, Mike
'tGrimey" Grimes on guitar, Tracy
Hackney on the dulcimer, Dean
Tomasek on bass and Keith Brogdon
on arm.
Signed to Immortal Recorda, te
group recently released its debut album
produced by Peter Collins
(Queensryche, Indigo Girla, Suicidal
Tendenciea and Jewel), titled "Boo-
Tay." The album title certinly atrikes a
question mark in most pople's heads,
as it seems like a more apt title for an
R&B album.
"I really wante to call the albtu
'Songs About (Girls Who Don't ILike
Me,"' Bare, Jr. said. "But the rest of the
band thought thiat it wa too long.

Bare Jr. looks pretty boring just standing around doing nothing, but if you chuck
out "Boo-Tay," you'll find these guys are much more interesting than they look.

90 percent of the time, has been lop-
sided."
"tBoo-Tay- is indeed full of laments,
cynical swipes and biting humor, abaut
such girls.
Take, for example, the infectious
"Nothin' Better to Do," in which Bare
proclaims Nas love for a gir1 simvply
because he ".. has nothing better to
do."
"All the songs are written straight
from th heart xwith real feelings,' Bar
said.' You Dle' Mc Off, tt 'furcd Me
On' is a very real feeling wxhen xou
