The Joint Was Rockin'


DEL 3015

© & (p) 1996 Deluge Records, Inc.

What can be said of three wild guys laying waste to an innocent nightclub? Yes, Cub Koda, Brewer Phillips and Ted Harvey can play the blues. Yes, they can rock and YES, they can drive perfectly sane people out of their minds.

The latest installment in an already legendary career. Recorded back in 1983 by an enthusiastic fan, The Joint Was Rockin' features Cub and the original Houserockers doing what they do best- taking a nightclub and shakin' it down to the bricks. It's as real as the deal gets and will be released during the Summer of '96.

Produced by Cub Koda and "Doc" Cavalier

Liner Notes

It was July of 1983, and Brewer Phillips and Ted Harvey - better known as The Houserockers - were coming out to play Boston and surronding areas for a two week period. This was nothing new - they had been doing this off and on for over a decade. In the early 70's, they were rocking Joe's Place in Cambridge with slide guitar legend Hound Dog Taylor for two weeks at a clip, returning later that decade after Taylor's death with J.B. Hutto fonting the band, still sounding as wild and chaotic as ever. But this time it was a bit different, because fronting the band was a white guy with a rock'n'roll hit record to his credit ("Smokin' In The Boys Room") and an implausible name for a bluesman: Cub Koda.

The three of them had been plaing and recording off and on together since their initial Chicago meeting in 1980, which produced the "It's The Blues" album (featuring guest turns from Lefty Dizz and Left Hand Frank) for the small Boston based Baron label. Their
