Album Review

The debut recording of Goober & the Peas is in many ways a recreation of the experience of seeing the group live. The songs sound the same as they do live — with all the energy and without any additional instrumentation, and not to mention the continual banter between Goober and Junior. This is cowboy surf music at its finest — with a dark side. Songs generally riff on traditional country music themes and take on a sinister edge. "Up the Stairs" sings the song of a stalker and "Don't Be Afraid" tells the story of alcohol-induced domestic violence. There are lots of guitar hooks — "The Ballad of Ms. Amichi" and "It'll Getcha" are simply infectious. "Hunt for Grandpa (Let's Go)" has a driving, Led Zeppelin-esque feel. ~ Mark W. B.

Fine piece of a music

You can't truly appreciate this album until you've memorized every lyric to every track - even down to the banter. The only thing better is to see them perform these songs live.

Don't be fooled by the hillbilly gentlemen schtick, this is or was a great band who's music transcended the Grand Ol' Opry gimmick.

I borrowed my sister-in-law's cassette of this album 15 years ago, and I now that it's on iTunes, I can finally give it back.

The Best Band You've Never Heard!

Anyone familiar with the early 90's rock scene here in Detroit will remember Goober and the Peas. I remember seeing a bumper sticker or two on vehicles before I ever heard the band. I chuckled at the name, but it sparked my interest. Then one evening I happened to be flipping through TV channels and came across a telathon. The band that was performing live on the show was Goober and the Peas, and they were like nothing i've ever seen or heard. They had the look of country musicians from the 50's and 60's, but the sound of Jane's Addiction and Nirvana....with a tiny bit of a hillbilly twist. I was amazed! The next day I went down to the local record shop and bought both of their albums on CD. To this day I still listen to them regularly. They also released a Christmas EP that is pretty decent. Sadly, they broke up in the mid-90's, and I figured that i'd never get to see them live. However, in late 2010 they reunited and i've seen them at every Detroit area performance they've done ever since then. Their concerts are a blast! They kick around hay, do funny cover versions of other band's songs, and just have great crowd interaction. There's a lot of history to this band and it's worth looking into if you like what you see and hear. For starters, Jack White was their drummer on the second album. Also, the band Blanche includes some Goober and the Peas members. Goober and the Peas have a huge local following, but have never made it big nationally. Listen to their music and like me, you too will be wondering how such a great band has gone virtually unnoticed.

Hey goober

It's mikes son jack love your music

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Detroit cowpunks Goober & the Peas were a mainstay on the concert scene in the area for years. Beginning the late '80s, they featured a traditional country base that took on an evil side that reminded many of a cheerier Gun Club. The band survived for a long time, even losing some of the novelty vibe that haunted them since their incarnation. But by the mid-'90s, enough members had left...
