Who are Elmo Buzz and the Eastside Bulldogs?
Elizabeth Cook, Bobby Bare Jr., Tim Carroll, Jen Gunderman, Mark Horn, Eric McConnell, Dennis Taylor and some dude named Todd Snider.
If that sounds interesting to you, and it should, you can download their six song EP Shit Sandwich for free.
Excerpt from an interview I did with Todd for NoDepression where I first heard about Elmo Buzz:
Hal Bogerd-I know you’ve been a very busy man recently with a new record (The Storyteller), a new label (Aimless Records),a producer (Jason D. Williams), and a soundtrack (Homewrecker). Are there any other upcoming projects?
Todd Snider – I’ve recorded a bunch of jerry jeff walker songs with don was and great american taxi. Kix brooks, elizabeth cook, peter cooper and amy lavere sing on it.
We’ve still got more recording to do for that. I think it’ll come out for his 70th birthday.
I’ve also got some new songs I’ll probably get around to recording soon.
Plus i have a band called Elmo Buzz and the East Side Bulldogs.
We play regional rock.
We even made an EP called Shit Sandwich…but nobody really likes it.
So I’ve decided to fire our singer. Me. And replace him with our tambourine girl. Elizabeth cook. And now were actually very good i think.
we play kick ass, party hardy rock and roll. all below the belt. no slow shit.
