David's mid '80s to mid '90s band, THE JUNK MONKEYS was the best straight forward rock and roll band of that time period that you might have missed. No metal overtones, no industrial edge, no rap hybrids. Just straight up rock n roll ala The Rolling Stones, The Replacements and Cheap Trick with that gritty working class Detroit city attitude added in.
The band toured relentlessly but David decided to leave the music business on a high note not too long after touring for the "Bliss" record. He left with the band's integrity intact before there was even a whiff of succumbing to the pressures of the commercial machine.
"MusicHound’s Rock: The Essential Album Guide" called 1992’s "Bliss", “One of the best guitar-pop releases in a decade rife with great ones.”
At the turn of the century David assisted a fellow Junk Monkey alum in the studio project SWIG, but other than that he has laid dormant (musically speaking) until he got the itch again in 2014.
He rounded up a supergroup for his new band, DAVID BIERMAN OVERDRIVE. A bunch of seasoned veteran Detroit friends.
Kevin Perri (Junk Monkeys, Dives, Brian McCarty Band, etc)
Dave Feeny (Hysteric Narcotics, Orange Roughies, Blanche, American Mars, Loretta Lynn, etc)
Stephen Palmer (Fletcher Pratt, Back in Spades, The High Strung, etc)
Jim Faulkner (The Happy Accidents, Blueflowers, The Beggars, etc).
He has maintained the same great lineup since the bands inception. David Bierman Overdrive is a band effort and not just a bunch of session guys. David brings the songs and the guys put their touches on them to round them out.
The full length record "Standard Skies" came in 2014, garnering excellent reviews. Followed by a rollicking digital single in 2017.
This single for "She Don't Love You" is the first new material in 5 years from DBO. David writes from the heart, not just churning out pap. This paen is deceptive in that it can seem like a downer "she don't love you anymore, as if she ever did before", but its the latter lines that are the inspriational pick me ups "...fall in love again". You know, don't stay down, its not the end of the world, get out there and get some life!
This is the #6 single in the I-94 series where the band covers a Detroit artist on the "B" side.
David and crew decided to shake the distortion off an Outrageous Cherry nugget "Nope" and do it up DBO style. An excellent addition to their catalog.
There are 3 variants on the sleeve each with unique band photos and slightly different cover art.
One for the black vinyl, one for the wax mage vinyl and one for the various colored vinyl.
Also available in a cost savings bundle with the other singles in the Detroit artist cover series!
EVERYONE NEEDS SOME DETROIT IN THEIR ROCK 'N" ROLL!
