Wow - the BoDeans are back - remember them? It's album number 11 and it's called "American Made" and it's on Megaforce. The band - still all the way from Wisconsin that's been around almost 30 years - hopefully governor Scott Walker won't survive 2012. It's all about Kurt Newmann now - Sammy Llanas skedaddled last year. This one is solid - still not as good as their debut "Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams" from 1986, but few releases are. The best one is "American," with a great laid back Americana-friendly guitar solo, which we always love.
