~~~~~~~~Wild Bill Austin / James Onusko-Indymusic review. ~~~~~~~~~
There are those who express themselves in the most artisic ways. Art if you will, is usually measured by the complexity of the painters thought on to canvas which is a reflection of his talent ie: The more complex the better the talent. This is not true in some cases. I think it was Sting who said "Its not what you play but what you dont play makes the difference between good and great". The album " Give'em Some Rock And Roll" exudes this to the measure. From the spectum of Jazz to Electo-dance, The far reaching boundries are explored and sometimes exceeded however; listening to 'Wild Bill Austin's "Give'em Some Rock And Roll" Cd, where there is no Jazz or Electro music, I find that even the simplest form of rock and roll / country music is just as boundless if the artist sings and plays with passion. "Wild Bill" shows us that music is fun, comical and sincere. From the beautiful ballad of " One Little Angel to the free form and whimsical 'DETRACTORS" I found myself asking, what will this guy do next? The lyrics range from opinions to love to enjoying life. If your looking for a little fun and something different out of the mainstream then this Cd is your 'to purchase' from Local Scene Records. He may not be Steve Vai but the talent he does have suits his message in an unsurpassed simple way. This artist is passionate about his music and his message which the listener will pick up on as I did.

Sometimes, music in the simplest form is the most enjoyable. I have found that most musicians do every trick they know in all their songs and it becomes musical overload. "Wild Bill" is a different breed from those that try to impress with over-done guitar tricks and instead, lays it all out for you in simple lyrics and music that you dont become bored or burned out. From the touching "One Little Angel" with its soft and tender vocals and acoustic guitar which would be easly found on any MOR radio staton to the comical "Wilder Women.....Faster Scooters" or "$9.95" You will find him warm and funny throught this Cd which the artist Wild Bill wrote and produced.
