About OBN III's
It is well established at this point OBN III's are a vehicle for the songs & performances of Orville Bateman Neeley III. Thru 3 studio albums for Chicago's Tic Tac Totally, 2 live albums and a impressive pile of 7"'s for sundry global labels, not to mention chaotic live exhibitions thatranged from the slightly confrontational to the very confrontational, the Austin based OBN III's have long been considered the great angry hope of the U.S. underground. So, you might well ask, "why break something that doesn't require fixing?"

That's the kind of question I'd expect from a total coward (and I thank you for not asking it out loud). It takes real fortitude & courage to detonate a wildly successful formula, to part way with players as talented as Messers Cashen, Smith and Low, and instead, return to the fray with a twin guitar juggernaut in the form of 'Worth A Lot Of Money', the most fully realized, unrelenting OBN III's album to date. For a guy with zero to prove in the songwriting sweepstakes, Neeley's emerged with both the catchiest and most raging material of his 29 years, and however many echoes you might catch of say, Thin Lizzy, Rose Tattoo or Sonics Rendezvous Band, the current quartet of Neeley (now on guitar + vocals), guitarist Tom Triplett (The Real Energy, Snooty Garbagemen, Blaxx), bassist Michael Andrew Goodwin (Massagenist, Low Times) and Marley Jones (ex-Sweet Talk) areridiculously locked in.

Recorded with the assistance of producer Mike McCarthy (Cherubs, Spoon, A Giant Dog), though 'Worth A Lot Of Money' might be a quantum leap forward in recording quality for this band, there's no trickery in action, as anyone who's seen these guys on multiple continents over the last year can attest. In Triplett, Neeley's got a virtuoso-level guitar foil ; in Goodwin & Jones, the foundation for, well, greatness. That's the goal, anyway.
