The rootin' & bluein' albun.
Roots'n'Blues is an albun dedicated to the fine arts of rootin' & bluein'. For those of youse not familiar with Ocker speak (Australian vernacular dialect), rootin' refers to the fine art of shagging, fucking, making sweet love........having a root.
Bluein' refers to the fine art of punching on, fighting, havin' a punch up.........havin' a blue.
Hence the title: Roots'n'Blues
On this albun we returned to our roots recorded it in the Vee Bees home town and spiritual rock haven Queanbeyan.
Early period Vee Bees saw us staying real, with our feet on the ground and recording in Queanbeyan.
Mid period Vee Bees saw us sway from our vision. We might have got a bit arty farty and up ourselves, might not too, but we did take the drastic step of venturing 15 kilometres to the more illustrious setting of Fyshwick (porn & firecracker centre of Australia) to record the 2nd EP and 1st Albun.
On Roots 'n' Blues we got real and headed back to a studio in Quangers where the ambience of the town brought out our best, although, from memory it was fucking hot which was good and bad. Good cos it made the beer seem colder.
This albun was actually recorded in a studio, rather than the shed where the 1st EP was recorded which we found a better setting cos it wasn't so bloody hot, it had a beer fridge, and a toilet that worked. Pure luxury!
It features some grouse tracks like 'I'd Rather Be On A Brewery Tour", "Three Thongs" and "Port Kembla Knee Trembla".
Give it a go!

The Vee Bees Queanbeyan, Australia

We are a 3 chord, dumb arse, punk'n'rock'n'roll band from Queanbeyan, Australia.
4 blokes, 3 chords, 2 brain cells, 1 carton of beer.
We formed in 2000 and are still hanging around like a bad fart, doing half arsed tours, and releasing albuns whenever we bloody well feel like it.
We're don't sing about nuthin' we don't know about.
Our songs are easy to play with a gut full of tinnies.
Get fucked.
