Best known as the leader of Brownsville Station and composer of their hit, "Smokin' in the Boys Room," Cub Koda proved that his roots went far deeper, both before the band's formation, during its days in the sun, and long after its demise. His high-school band, the Del-Tinos, were dipping into blues and rockabilly as far back as 1963 -- not only pre-Butterfield, but pre-Beatles. Similarly, he recorded legendary home tapes during his off-hours from Brownsville, before the rockabilly revival had uttered its first hiccup, he formed Cub Koda & The Points and later teamed with Hound Dog Taylor's former rhythm section, the Houserockers, to play the blues in the '80s. Along the way he cranked out a monthly column ("The Vinyl Junkie") and recorded a series of albums that kept roots music of all kinds alive without ever treating it like a museum piece.
Cub died on July 1, 2000 at the age of 51 (R.I.P) As he said, he was "somewhere between a cult figure and rock & roll legend," and to anyone that knew him, that was the gospel truth.
Covering everything from his pre-Brownsville Station days to two brand-new songs, "Welcome to My Job" is the definitive collection of Cub Koda's solo career.
