ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Greezy Wheels has been a major player in Austin, Texas music for nearly fifty years. Members of the Austin Music Hall Of Fame, once deemed the “Grateful Dead Of Texas,” they have played a part in some of the most iconic and important events in Texas music and cultural history. To presage that fiftieth year (2020), the Wheels have recorded what many are already calling their finest ever studio album, Ain’t Quite Like That, co-produced by Cleve Hattersley and John Bush at John’s Cicada Moon Studios. It is to be Greezy Wheels’ final record.
Nine tunes written by Cleve and arranged by the entire band are complemented by two amazing covers, Mercury Blues and Blue Moon Of Kentucky. The cd takes the listener on a trip through the gilded age of great jams, beautiful melodies and poignant lyrics that still speak directly to the moment. These songs will be in that moment well into the next century.
Current band members pay homage to all the Greezies who have gone before, giving this record an all-time feel. Cleve, who has finally fully spread his wings on guitar and slide guitar, is joined on the top end of the sound by his wife, Sweet Mary on fiddle. Bush on drums, bassist Brad Houser, and keyboardists Matt Hubbard and Coleman Berg drive the bus, backing up vocalists Lissa Hattersley, Penny Jo Pullus, and Cleve with a unity that speaks of years of playing together. That’s because they have: Penny Jo has been a band member for twenty years, and John, Brad and Matt are all core members of Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. Extra fun is provided by horn sections from Brad and Matt, with Mary playing the trumpet parts; and extra special fun comes from the fiddles of Minnie and Ella Jordan.
Coinciding with the release of Ain’t Quite Like That is the launch of Cleve’s tell-all book, Life Is A Butt Dial (YES Publishing Austin, Texas). Subtitled Tales From A Life Among The Tragically Hip, it is a riotous look at his life through the jaundiced eyes of one who has seen it all and met everyone. With a foreword by Kinky Friedman, Cleve’s drawings of many of his subjects, and sixteen glorious pages of photos, Life Is A Butt Dial has the feel of a best-seller all the way; from the man Larry Ratso Sloman has labeled the “Zelig of the counterculture.”
Great music and great reading, a combo that cannot be beat. There may never again be an album (nor a book) quite like this. Anyone who hears the record will automatically want to know more about Cleve, Greezy Wheels and Austin, Texas culture. Anyone who reads the book will just have to have the cd. If the modern music world wants to know from where it came, they need only look at Greezy Wheels. It’s where it all started.
