Riffs, drum beats, some booze, humility, and an attitude to please no one but themselves. These are the ingredients that make up Rebel Yell''s aptly titled debut album "Greatest Hits". Critical Jim and El Te Gringo are the two masterminds behind this punkster hip hop party record, recorded over a few years and beers in several makeshift studios around Winnipeg and out in their favorite lake spot getaway, Clear Lake, Manitoba, Canada.
Jim, a guitarist and Gringo, a drummer were already playing in the prog punk band Red Blanket when they discovered they both had the flair to write rhymes. They got together and made some funky sounding beats with guitars and drums and were pretty impressed at how well they did. The styles on “Greatest Hits” are about as eclectic as it gets, ranging from the sped up Spanish love ballad “Dayohh!” to the gritty inner city hip hop sound of “Silent March” to the bouncy dance riffs of “This Reggae Weighs a Tonne”.
So who in the right mind thinks they can be in some punk rock band and just go and do a hip hop record? The duo relies on their musicianship and a just don’t a &*%$ attitude to put them wherever they want to be.
The two are currently in the process of assembling a band to pull these songs off live. Anybody smell a reality TV show?
