"Ever wonder what a rock band’s Off Season would sound like? Y’know, the guys from bands that tour all year round taking some time off to jam together and make something outside of their normal routine. Cue The Company Band, a rock super group made up of Neil Fallon (Clutch), Jim Rota (Fireball Ministry), Brad Davis (Fu Manchu) and Jess Margera (CKY). Additional guitarist Dave Bone rounds out the band and together they’ve been releasing random slabs of rock goodness for the last few years. This time The Company Band have unleashed Pros And Cons, an EP that reminded me of the few, the proud, the ones who know how to kick out the jams."
"Pros And Cons works because it takes each band member out of their comfort zone. Rota’s guitar work in Fireball Ministry is always very heavy handed and serious. I don’t know if it’s working alongside Dave Bone, but in The Company Band we get to hear Jim Rota relax and rock out. Brad Davis takes a break from the straight groove of Fu Manchu so he can walk around a bit and allow his bass playing to be, for lack of a better term, tougher."
"Let’s be frank, most of the new face of rock is pretty pussy. It’s all overly attractive men preening on stage and pandering to the audience in some kind of bad homage to AC/DC or Led Zeppelin. The Company Band are the exact opposite. This is fighting rock, drinking rock, tough guy who is going to die on the road rock. Pros And Cons is the kind of album that would make Bon Scott smile and Grand Funk Railroad proud. The Company Band’s relentless pursuit of boogie down swing is a dying art form, but when it all goes up in flames at least we’ll have the tunes man!"
