As I had never heard about this band in the southern rock scene, I was pretty curious to know if the southern label would "match" this band, as we see so many bands using this label and when you listen to their music, it's not really southern ! So, when we got this five titles cd, we wanted to know what iit was. After listening to these tunes, there is for sure southern roots in their music, and especially from the 70's in the way they build their songs. The title "Not alone" is pretty much close to Lynyrd Skynyrd 's "Simple man", as are the other songs ("Telephone", "Mean women" ,"Whistle blows" and "Keep the faith"), where the atmosphere would surely enjoy the southern rock fans from the 70's, and we can say this band is not, as many other ones, in the heavy southern rock category. It's mostly cool, and really far from the overdriven guitar sounds, some guitar solos or riffs remind me of the seventies, a time where southern rock was evolving to become the music we now appreciate. So, let's hope Budderkat to keep on playing this music and to record a complete album for us to get a more precise idea on who this band is.
