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

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.
