ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Webber Keeth is a musical vitamin that will provide your mind with the nutrients needed to relieve your FM Radio constipation.

Webber Keeth's CD, "In Between The Cracks" provides the stripped-down raw truth about hard livin' and hard sex. The spirit and attitude of rock-n-roll intertwined with the freedom of the jazz tradition results in the power and freshness that is Webber Keeth.

Crawl "In Between The Cracks" and visit with the beautiful "High Priestess." She will be your guide as you travel to the other side of the tracks where city streets are full of "Hustlers", and assorted "Walkin' Zombies." Step out of the Triple X Theatre and grab some fried chicken to go. Keep going 'till you hear the ROCK oozing out of the juke joint in the distance. Pull up a stool at the bar and relax to the acoustic sounds of "Makeshift" and "Let Down", but remember to hang on to your
wig when Webber Keeth unleashes a full-blown "Mingus Mayhem" as any "Young Man" will testify.

After the gig hang out with the band as they visit their favorite sideshow marvel: the one and the only "Lobster Boy." Step into the circus tent and listen to the tale of Grady the lobster-clawed circus performer who lived a life of soap opera-like stardom, betrayal, and murder. Come on by, move on in, stay if you like and bear witness to the music of Webber Keeth.

"The rumours of late-night lunacy can neither be confirmed or denied." Listen to some of the songs via Real Audio, MP3, or ESP and decide for yourself. Whatever you do, don't deny yourself the pleasure of having yer very own copy of this CD.

Ladies and Gentlemen....I give you Webber Keeth!

THE NOISE - Review from Summer 1999 Webber Keeth In Between the Cracks CD Striving to provide an alternative to the "alternative rock" that has become mainstream fare on today's FM airways, Webber Keeth has carved out a sound that resides somewhere between the jazz-infused, anguished punk-poesy of the Minutemen and the macho, bar-room anthems of George Thorogood. Thematically, the songs on In Between the Cracks, the band's 70-minute rock opus, are just about as bleak as they can be. The opener, "Lobster Boy," relates a tale of physical deformity, self-exploitation, depression, alcoholism, and homicide. The song was inspired by the true-life story of traveling circus-freak Grady Stiles, Jr., murdered in 1992 as the result of a conspiracy involving his wife and stepson. Strangely out-of-tune, drunk-sounding background vocals lend a playful but eerie quality to the song's chorus, while a theatrical recreation of the freakshow itself ensures a morbidly satisfying listening experience. Tunes like "Hustlers," "Mingus Mayhem," and "Clementine Brown" are strong mainly due to the juxtaposition of rich, image-laden lyrics and wildly inaccurate, but emotionally charged vocal stylings, a la D. Boon. An omnipresent, raunchy lead guitar provides a somewhat sloppy seam to the more tortured, alcohol- and drug-soaked testimonials, "Death Becomes Fixers" and "In Between the Cracks." But perhaps the best moments on the album come during the less caustic, more melodic songs such as "Make Shift," "Let Down," and "Sun Breezes," which contain highly pleasing pop hook as well as relatively optimistic lyrics, all while maintaining the band's unmistakably live sound. In Between the Cracks shies away from studio trickery and slick production, and Webber Keeth is a band that obviously knows how to hold a jam together. On a CD of this length, however, I was disappointed not to find a track or two recorded live in some smoke-filled nightclub, brimming with drunken revelers. I'd like to get a glimpse of Webber Keeth in their natural habitat. (Ken Cormier - The Noise)
