In this Volume 8 of our Friday Feature I would like to introduce you to a very dedicated musician. Tim Armstrong aka Tim Timebomb – guitarist and singer of one of my alltime favorite US Punk Rock bands „Rancid“. In April, Tim released his album „Tim Timebomb and Friends“ which contains a 36 song compilation that portraits the wide and open minded horizon of a true fan of music, from Rock to Folk.
„Ooh La La“ is a cover version and was originally written and published by Rolling Stone Ron Wood and Ronnie Lane in 1973.
The recording as well as the video below is featuring Tim’s friends Travis Baker (Blink182, Avril Lavigne) on drums, J. Bonner (The Aggrolites, Jimmy Cliff) on bass and Kevin Bivona (Jimmy Cliff, The Transplants) on keyboard.
I like the arrangement Tim did on Ooh La La. The combination of easy reggae sound and rhythm with Tim’s punk rock attitude is generating a pretty cool and hip atmosphere. It’s simply cool clean fun to watch and listen. Check it!
