Long Shot Of Hard Stuff

Originally released by Little Class Records and now reissued by Bloodshot. 

10 years after their last album, RH & the MB still have the wit and the wisdom, the sadness and the spark, of the finest top shelf honky tonk.

Full Description

Hey, all the glossy rags, high-end lifestyle retail outlets and Brooklyn beard enclaves are telling us that neo-honky tonk is here and IT'S COOL.

Well, over at the Misery Bar & Grill, it's never gone out of style. Rex and the Boys, itchin' to add some tunes to the dusty jukebox in the corner, re-convened to bring you  an 11-pack of killer new songs (doesn't one always get lost on the way home?).

10 years after their last album, RH & the MB still have the wit and the wisdom, the sadness and the spark, of the finest top shelf honky tonk.

LONG SHOT is full of upbeat, whimsical, and often ornery subject matter. Recorded and produced by Johnny Kenepaske (Adam Lee, A.J. Gaither) at The Dead Horse Sound Co, LONG SHOT delivers the sleek sounds of your favorite 80’s country albums while presenting enough grit to keep in authentic.

Short Description
Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys Long Shot of Hard Stuff
  • There are plenty of classic country elements on Long Shot — including Hobart's robust tenor, which seems designed to curve around the wailing notes of a slide guitar.
