As we mentioned a couple months ago, Lee Bob Watson is back with his band Lee Bob & The Truth, and today we’re happy to give you a first listen of the track “Mission Breakdown” off the band’s forthcoming LP The Truth. Watson bursts back onto the scene a flurry of words about the changing neighborhood (and city), while his band, which includes Josh Lippi and Steve Wyreman, is just as tight as it gets:
The Truth LP will be released in early 2015, and Watson says that although the album didn’t intentionally have a San Francisco theme, the album at times feels like “a Muni ride or a drunken crawl across the city.” He also tells me, “The band was born out of mutual love of The Blues and Rock & Roll (before the Blues bled out of it).” I don’t know about you, but I’m sold. If you need further convincing, Lee Bob & The Truth perform at the Make Out Room with Bill Baird and others on November 30. “Mission Breakdown” is available as a free download from Lee Bob & The Truth’s website.
