Number 667 - Rhino Bucket

Number 667

Rhino Bucket

"Ride With Yourself"


Genre:Hard Rock
To put it simply, Rhino Bucket sound exactly like -era , something for which the band makes no apologies. Furthermore, what could easily be passed off as mere plagiarism, becomes instead a celebration of the original masterpiece thanks to Rhino Bucket's bold-faced indifference and oftentimes fantastic songs. They also deserve some credit for coming up with one of the most original and bizarre names in rock history.Formed in Van Nuys, CA, in 1987 by Finnish-born transplant (-cloned vocals and guitar), lead guitarist , bassist , and drummer , Rhino Bucket perfectly replicated raw, three-chord boogie to perfection on their self-titled debut album.
What was in that drink?
But while they were quickly embraced by the U.K and European press, the band was faced with nothing but apathy and scorn in America, where they were pegged as rip-off artists and received little promotional support from their label. Despite the inclusion of one of its tracks, "Ride With Yourself," in ' popular Wayne's World movie, their aptly titled second album, 1992's Get Used to It, also failed to make any headway, and the band was soon unceremoniously dropped by Reprise. Still they soldiered on, and in an ironic twist of fate, recruited former skin-pounder to replace the departed for their third album, 1994's independently released Pain. Rhino Bucket finally called it a day the following year, but eventually re-formed in 2001 with plans to record a new album. Interestingly, the new lineup included original drummer , billed as following sexual reassignment surgery. After a lengthy hiatus, the group returned in 2006 with And Then It Got Ugly. ~ [Ed Rivadavia]
As one would presume, Rolling Stone Magazine have nothing to say about Rhino Bucket as they are too much like AC/DC.
