Rhino Bucket - And Then It Got Ugly Review

by Zane Etwon

It is safe to say originality is a highly favored trait for a rock band to possess these days. It may also be safe to say the world has been attacked with far too many inferior AC/DC clones. AC/DC reinvented the wheel of rock music and have since seen all of their riffs and overall style pilfered by lowly pirates.

Rhino Bucket makes no bones about ripping off every Young Brothers guitar riff and Bon Scott's sleazy affectations. They pull of a convincing copycat act. Many of the tracks from And Then It Got Ugly could have been B-sides to slew of late '70's AC/DC records.

What's missing is that humor and glimmer of delightful evil that shimmered from Bon Scott's eyes. AC/DC was about as perfect as a rock band could be for a few years. Unfortunately, their influence has created too many run-of-the-mill bar bands that play the same sweaty, generic rock and roll. AC/DC just had something more. Something nobody can get by ripping off the "Dirty Deeds" riff.

Regardless, as far as second-rate AC/DC clones go, Rhino Bucket is first class.
