Jr. Gone Wild - Still Got The Jacket [CD]
Cat. no: WEEWERK073
Release Date: 12 Nov 2021
After a reunion concert in 2013 Jr Gone Wild began thinking about a new album, reflective of all they've learned and experienced over a lifetime in the music biz
The result is 'Still Got The Jacket', a 16-track album that makes it clear that the band's chemistry still thrives, and is still steeped in twangy rock and melodic country-punk. For fans hearing the power pop of "Dodge" and "Girl In The Crowd," it's as if no time has passed, while the raucous energy that fueled so many beersoaked nights still glows brightly on "Him Or Me" and "Old And Ugly.
Now with McDonald's nephew Quinton Herbert on drums, replacing drummer Larry Shelast who passed away in 2019, the band is still fronted by the immediately recognizable vocals of Mike McDonald, lead guitarist Steve Loree and bassist Dave "Dove" Brown. A stand-out track on the album is a cover of "Fly At Night" that features the original Chilliwack founder Bill Hendersen recreating the memorable guitar riffs from one of his most beloved songs.
