The Best of Marah
This set of working class, sweat-covered songs are from one of my favorite bands, the boys from Philly, Marah. Often called, "the last rock n roll band", Marah, led by Dave & Serge Bielanko are a band with an inimitable sound, built upon the best traits of rock, vintage country, and classic rock. (Serge left the band in late 2008 to be a full-time father). The following songs are culled from the following records, Let's Cut The Crap and Hook Up later Tonight (1998), Kids in Philly (2000), 20,000 Streets Under The Sky (2004), If You Didn't Laugh, You'd Cry (2005) and Angels of Destruction (2008).
Of the records represented here, one will be included in my forthcoming Best of The Decade. Venture a guess ?
