The Long Ear

SECOND ALBUM REISSUED - NEWLY REMASTERED - FULL BOOKLET - Produced by Howard Benson (Bang Tango, Little Caesar) and Keith Olsen (Whitesnake, Ozzy). Southgang was one of the countless pretty-boy hard rock bands to emerge from the late 80's hair metal craze. The band played respectable hook-laden hard rock with a slight southern influence, but grunge was already grabbing a foothold and all but ending the careers of bands such as Southgang. Formed in Rome, Georgia and originally going by the name Byte The Bullet, it wasn't long before Jesse Harte (vocals), Butch Walker (guitar), Jayce Fincher (bass) and Mitch McLee headed to the bright lights of L.A.'s Sunset Strip. Within a year of their arrival the band was headlining, garnering major label interest and making the decision to change their moniker from Byte The Bullet to Southgang. Forget those polite Southern manners, Southgang's second record, Group Therapy, gets down and dirty. Touring, playing naked (yes really!), and a move back to their home town of Atlanta, Georgia, has produced a band and album that's tough, fast, lean and mean-all without losing the catchy, rollicking Southgang vibe. This ain't "Gone With The Wind," and Southgang do give a damn, as the infectious grooves of Group Therapy will attest to Anyone who had the mistaken impression that Southgang is all and no hooks, well, Group Therapy will dispel that rumor. The followup to 1991's Tainted Angel, Southgang's new record serves up some tasty songs that run the gamut from introspective and traditional, to the rambunctious, nice 'n' nasty "White Trash With Cash," the tough and edgy "Tug Of War," and the infectious true tale tune "The Legend of C.C. Road. The Georgia boys are no stranger to songs that feel good: the title track from Tainted Angel enjoyed tons of airplay, and after it debuted on "Headbanger's Ball," MTV put the clip into "Ballbuster of the Week. Touring in 1991 found Southgang doing both a club tour and opening for major headliners, honing their chops and whipping fans into a frenzy. That dues-paying time on the road has resulted in a firm sense of precisely what the band wanted to put on their sophomore effort. And they succeeded in that goal, even bringing two produces together to achieve the exact sound they wanted for Group Therapy.
