Roscoe's Gang and Loud & Lonesome deluxe reissues

Lakeside Lounge Records re-issues Ambel's 2 long out of print solo records.  

Rolling Stone Magazine called Ambel's 1988 debut Roscoe's Gang "The record Keith Richards

hould have made". The core band is Springfield MO's Morells with Syd Straw and

Peter Holsapple as guests.

Loud & Lonesome is Ambel's '94 release featuring songs

written with Kevin Salem, Dan Zanes, Dan Baird and Terry Anderson

A very raw 3 pc muscle car band featuring  Andy York rips through the tunes.

Loud & Lonesome and Roscoe's Gang

both get a blistering re-mastering from the original analog masters.

All 3 titles come in deluxe  digi-pak non jewelcase packaging with new extensive liner notes and photos.


Summer has always given us hope that our favorite Rock and Roll band was about to put out that next big sing-a-long blockbuster hit. Wild and free from the demands of school, we needed that release that great new music gave us! We wanted some loud, rockin' guitars playing great riffs like the ones in "Never Give an Inch" and "Would it Kill You".  We wanted some big fat drums down in a groove and moving our asses like the bombastic "Where's Your Boyfriend At" and the just plain rude, "Getting' Drunk". We wanted jaywalking bass lines that went where they wanted to, when they wanted to, like only Keith Christopher can deliver and does deliver on rambunctious covers like "Love Train" and "Roam". We wanted a great story like "All Dressed Up" and some hard pop like "Hurtin' Thing" But on top of all of that we wanted crazy people screaming their heads off and having a good time! Well, there's plenty of that on here! Just pop on the infectious "Anything/Everything" and try NOT to sing or scream along with the Yayhoos own theme song! It's impossible! And that's all we ever wanted. And that's all you'll find on The Yayhoos new PUT THE HAMMER DOWN.
