Editors’ Notes

Unlike most legendary rock ’n’ rollers, Ian McLagan still plays with a hunger and consistency that’s made him an in-demand keyboardist among recording artists looking for a genuine touch. His solo career also offers a powerful consistency that’s best emphasized by his longtime friends, The Bump Band. Though they’re hardly household names, guitarist Scrappy Jud Newcomb, bassist Jon Notarthomas, and drummer Conrad Choucroun can play a blues shuffle like their lives depend on it. On United States, they settle into what they do best. “All I Wanna Do” cruises as one would expect The Faces might do in their senior years, while McLagan uses his limited but effective voice to take on the truths of “Mean Old World” and deal with romantic failure on “Don’t Say Nothing.” Generally, the group stick to wary love songs that sound as natural with their bluesy pub rock as Ian McLagan does sitting at the keyboard. This shows that once the music is in you, it’d be a waste not to let it out at every chance.

You kidding

Amazing. Nuff said. Wake up humans.

Classic sound Classic guy!

This is an amazing effort by the Rock N' Roll Hall of Famer. Not even sure if he cares about that title, because he is so dang down to earth. He is quite the gentlemen. Every track on this album is great! It's very "Faces" sounding to me and I don't mean that he ripped off the sound, but he really carried the torch with the sound that we all know and love by The Small Faces and Faces. I can't get enough of this band. I was fortunate enough to see him at Fitzgerald's in Berwyn, IL (Chicago) a couple weeks ago and was absolutely blown away to see such an iconic performer in such an intimate setting. He was more than cordial afterwards signing his biography (Which is a great read, by the way), and he took photos and even re-takes with us when they turned out too dark. Just an all around great guy. His music transports me to a happier place and time and he's deserving of any and all success he gets. Buy this on vinyl if you can too! You won't be sorry!
