More Like Me - Blind Pig Records 2009

CD RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2009

NOTES: A quick review from Releaselog
There are roots rockers, and then there’s Webb Wilder. His legendary live shows have inspired a burgeoning cult following. For over 20 years, Wilder has mined rock ‘n’ roll’s most hallowed ground, but unlike so many others, he has approached it all with a rare irreverence and wit. His self-effacing persona gives Wilder’s music a sense of fun and imagination often lacking among his peers. And while many other proponents of American roots music simply stopped at Elvis and Chuck Berry, Wilder’s music incorporates influences as diverse as British Invasion, surf, country and roadhouse blues. As Billboard magazine noted, “The band is Georgia Satellites, part Dave Edmunds, part Elvis Costello and altogether wonderful.” “More Like Me” finds Webb in great form, and combines some of his new songs like the honky-tonking title cut with obscure cover gems — including a great version of Roky Erikson’s brooding “Don’t Slander Me.”
