The Ribeye Brothers were formed sometime in the late 90's, No one seems to be very clear on the exact date, when legendary lyricist Tim Cronin(Former singer of MONSTER MAGNET) teamed up with a Barely conscious Jon Kleinman(Former drummer of MONSTER MAGNET). Their desire: To make the kind of music they knew would shoot straight up the charts, namely Garage/Country/Swamprock. And while the unbridled success and fame has thus far eluded Them, hopes remain high that someday they will sell at least enough CD's to pay for Jon's Insatiable animal porn collection. After several lineup changes, they arrived at what is now often called their "current lineup". This includes bass player Jim Baglino (LORD STERLING), keyboardist Matt Forman And noted drummer Neil O'Brien (BUTTERFLIES OF LOVE).

The first album, "IF I HAD A HORSE" contains 12 songs, 2 of which are cover songs . Those include, "Don't Pass Me By", penned by RINGO STAR and ""How Does It Feel?" By the great 60's English band THE CREATION. The remaining 10 songs may sound like covers. But under existing copyright laws, I can assure you, they are originals.

The album was originally Released by the small, but enthusiastic label ALL-INDIE RECORDS, but when the owner Lost his only set of keys to the office, they packed up and moved to Bulgaria, where the postal rates Were much lower. This left the band with two options, join ALL -INDIE overseas where they would Most likely spend their remaining days in homo-servitude, or find a new label. Luckily, for all involved, They chose the ladder and are now with Stoner-Rock label, METEOR CITY RECORDS.

The record Label's first order of business was a huge media blitz, which garnered the band an even lower profile Than they had before, which is slightly confusing to the band themselves. Currently the band is working on the next album, which was tentatively titled "Rubber Soul", until Someone pointed out that had been used already. That person was promptly fired. Now the album is tentatively titled "Bar Ballads And Cautionary Tales" and should be recorded Within the year. It will include the same mix of eclectic influences, but with a little less yodeling.
