July 24, 1990 – Rhino Bucket’s original line up performs a blistering set at the infamous Coconut Teaszer on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, CA. The set was recorded and aired on a prominent radio program, but aside from some scattered bootleg cassettes, the tapes were all but lost – until now!
Remixed and remastered, “Sunrise on Sunset Blvd.” captures the original Rhino Bucket line-up fresh off tour and at the top of their game – driving guitars, tight rhythms and big choruses. In support of the record, Rhino Bucket will perform their ENTIRE first album – as well as selected tracks from subsequent releases.
Sunrise on Sunset Blvd will Be released in February 2013.

In 2010, SNEW released their sophomore effort, We Do What We Want. The title track “We Do What We Want” reminds me a lot of the classic Rhino Bucket song, “One Night Stand” from 1990. I like both bands, and both songs, but only can win. Which song & video do you like better? Watch both videos and decide with your vote below!
SNEW – “We Do What We Want”
Rhino Bucket – “One Night Stand”
Rhino Bucket’s new CD, “The Hardest Town” is now streaming online! You can listen to the whole CD at the following location on myspace. Check it out!!
When I think of Rhino Bucket I picture a hot sweaty smoke filled bar, with a bunch of rowdies smashing bar stools and breaking bottles over each other’s heads with the band is onstage banging out their three chord brand of working man rock ‘n roll while all hell is breaking loose in front of them. To picture them anywhere else would not only take away from the band but the music they have been perfecting for the past 19 or so years. Three years after their last release “And Then It Got Ugly” , Georg Dolivo – Vox/Guitar, Reeve Downes – Bass/Vox, Brian “Damage” Forsythe – Guitar, and the returning Simon Wright – Drums are back in business with their new release “the Hardest Town”. Much like their idols AC/DC Georg and the guys live by the “If It Ain’t Broke Don’t Fix It” rule and I personally wouldn’t have it any other way. The hardest thing about “the Hardest Town” is actually turning it off because once you get started listening to it you will not want to stop.
The title track starts us off and right away I can tell a difference in the drumming expertise and power Simon Wright brings back to the band and the music. Reeve Downes works the bottom end of his bass like a dog on a bone with solid thumping lines from beginning to end. Georg’s whiskey and cigarette soaked voice is music to my ears and sounds better than ever. “Damage” is also solid throughout and pulls off a nice solo. “Justified” doesn’t have a big anthemic chorus but you will find yourself singing along and tapping your foot nonetheless the more I listen to this song the more I think it is going to be a classic Bucket song much like “One Night Stand” and “Beat To Death Like A Dog”. “Know My Name” is another song with classic written all over it a full throttle rocker with a great chorus. Wright and Downes shine once again as they are completely in sync with one another. “Dog Don’t Bite” and “No One Here” both have a great AC/DC feel to it more so than usual for Rhino Bucket. If I was forced to pick a favorite song off of “the Hardest Town” then “Street To Street” would be my choice another full throttle rocker with a great foot tapping crank the stereo groove. Forsythe pulls off his best solo on this song also. “Take Me Down” has a cool ZZ Top meets AC/DC vibe to it that makes me think the guys could have been sitting out on a porch somewhere when this tune was recorded. “She’s With Me” would run a very close second to being my favorite song with “Street To Street” great groove and playing by the band as a whole on this track.
After 20 years of making kick ass music “the Hardest Town” may be the album that gets Rhino Bucket the mainstream recognition they definitely deserve, a absolutely great album from beginning to end with at least 4 songs that should be come classics. You can check out Rhino Bucket at www.rhinobucket.com or www.myspace.com/rhinobucketmusic. In addition to other retailers you can also pick up “the Hardest Town” directly from Acetate Records by going to www.acetate.com/bands/rhinobucket/index.html, it is also available from Amazon Downloads and I-Tunes.

Endangered species? Not quite – Rhino Bucket started recording a new album last April for what was to be a fall release. Well, Fall fell and Christmas came and went and no Bucket under the tree this year. It’s not cuz you’ve been naughty. We love naughty! So what’s the deal? Where’s the record?
To make a long story short, after laying down 95 percent of the tracks the “producer” went rogue, off the grid and disappeared with the hard drive, leaving both Acetate and the Bucket with a depleted recording budget and no record. Does the story end here… nope, no fuckin’ way.
Our label was relentless in their efforts to recover the recordings – that’s the good news. Bad news is they ain;t quite done yet, we still need some additional recording and mixing. See where we’re heading?? Yup, you guessed it. We’re broke and we’re turning to you, The Bucketheads, The Bucket Brigade, Rhino Nation, to help us raise some dough and finish this bitch (the record, not the producer).
We’re asking that the most dedicated Bucket fans purchase the new album in advance, which is what we like to do anyway, but this is a little earlier than usual. This will give us the funds to book the studio time needed to complete the project and believe us, you want us to finish this record! What’s in it for you? Well, besides hookin’ the boys up and being the first ones to get the spankin’ new disc, we have written a song about our latest “experience” and only those of you who pre-purchase will receive a special edition of the tentatively titled “Hardest Town” containing this exclusive track.
As is stands now, we’re looking at a May 5 release, but that depends on you! Either way we’ll ship out these special pre-sale CDs well in advance.
So, dig deep boys and girls and lets keep the new rock rolling!

Blue collar. Black leather. Hard times. Three phrases that California-based Rhino Bucket use to describe their sound. Countless others have compared Rhino Bucket to AC/DC. Rhino Bucket will bring their down and dirty sound to Algona, Iowa for the inaugural Rock Gone Wild festival. The festival is slated for August 20-23, 2009. Rock Gone Wild will feature more than 50 bands on two stages over four days of hard rock and heavy metal.
Formed in 1988, Rhino Bucket took a slightly different turn from the Sunset Strip Glam craze. Instead of sleazing it up, Rhino Bucket went a little harder, a little grittier, a little more down home rock n’ roll.
Like many 80s bands, Rhino Bucket had their share of ups and downs, breakups and member changes. After a lengthy hiatus, the band reformed in 2001 eventually recording And Then It Got Ugly in 2006. Rhino Bucket have six albums in their discography – and are working on lucky number seven. The band plans to release a new disc in 2009. Rhino Bucket is Georg Dolivo (vocals, guitar), Brian Forsythe (guitar), Reeve Downes (bass) and Simon Wright (drums).
Rock Gone Wild’s exclusive ticket presale has ended. Tickets will be available to the general public in the coming weeks. To receive updates, please join www.fevertalk.net. Additionally, Rock Gone Wild fans can receive unprecedented “behind-the-scenes” updates by reading Anatomy of a Festival at www.anatomyofafestival.wordpress.com. This blog promises to chronicle the ups – and downs – of planning a major music event.
Rhino Bucket join Helix, Junkyard, Dangerous Toys and Saigon Kick to the ever-growing Rock Gone Wild roster.
Festival artists will chat online exclusively with ticket-holders. This exciting interactive experience kicks off in the coming weeks and will continue until August 2009. Brian Vollmer of Helix will participate in the first chat. Brian has performed with Helix for over 30 years and teaches vocal lessons to a wide array of students. Thanks to his musicianship, Helix has sold millions of albums worldwide. Only those fans with tickets will be able to chat with Brian. Ticketholders will receive an email with instructions on how to access the private chat. Visit www.rockgonewild.com for complete festival information.
Rock Gone Wild will take place at the Freedom Park festival grounds, located at 2507- 160th Avenue in Algona, Iowa. While Algona is a rural community, the area is close to many hotels and both the Des Moines and Minneapolis airports are easily accessible.
Rock fans from more than 30 states and five countries have already purchased tickets. Will you be wild in August 2009?
Rock now. Rock on. Rock wild.
Check out the very first video, by Rhino Bucket, “Blood on the Cross”.
It’s Friday night in the heart of Amish Country. What is a rocker to do? Go to Clark’s Bar in Coshocton, Ohio on June 20th and see American Dog and Rhino Bucket!!
After a 3 hour drive through scenic Amish Country, we arrive at Clark’s Bar. As I walk in, We’re greeted by none other than Michael Hannon of American Dog. We find a seat and order some food, which by the way is great!!
American Dog took the stage around 10PM kicking their set off with Shitkicker and Barely Half Alive. If you haven’t seen them, Steve Theado is on guitar and he is incredible. Keith Pickens is on drums keeps the groove going along with vocalist/bassist Michael Hannon. The band mixed classics with songs from their new CD Hard. Hypnotized and Beaten, Broken, Etc sounded amazing. The band put everything they had into Rock-N-Roll Dog in memory of Michael’s dog Jake. They ended their hour long set with the one two punch of I Don’t Remember (I Drank Too Much) and Sometimes You Eat The Pussy, Sometimes The Pussy Eats You.
After a short intermission, Rhino Bucket hit the stage with Beat To Death Like a Dog and I Was Told. And from there it only got better. With Brian Forsythe’s searing leads and Reeve Downes thundering bass following the groove of Anthony “Tiny” Biuso’s drums, every song was loud and clear. Georg Dolivo’s vocal snarl was in fine form as well. They tore through classics like Hey There and One Night Stand along with newer songs Welcome To Hell and She Rides from their latest CD, And Then It Got Ugly (available at www.acetate.com). The surprise of the night was the song Street to Street from their upcoming CD. It fit in well with the closer’s Hammer and Nail, Ride the Rhino and Scratch and Sniff.
After the show, both bands made themselves available to meet and mingle with the fans. Many autographs were given and pictures were taken. It’s great to see bands respect their fans enough to do this. If you get a chance to see these bands, get off your ass and see them. You won’t be disappointed!!!

There has been a pretty good buzz about the new disc by Rhino Bucket, so I had no choice but to check it out. It has been 12 long years since we have had a new Rhino Bucket disc, and judging from the killer tunes on this disc, I hope we will get a new disc with fresh tunes before another decade passes.
As you probably know, Rhino Bucket is often compared to Bon Scott era AC/DC, and the sound here has not changed. In 2007, AC/DC fans have three choices: they can a) play their old CD’s until they etch grooves into them, b) stick their head in a paper bag and scream loudly, or c) go buy the new Rhino Bucket disc. (I recommend c 🙂 )
This disc will not disappoint any hard rock fans out there. …And Then It Got Ugly features the kickass vocals of Georg Dolivo, and the excellent rocking guitar of former Kix axe slinger, Brian Forsythe. I have quite a few favorites on this disc including Welcome to Hell, Don’t Bring Her Down, She Rides, Smile and Blood Sweat and Beers.
This is a fine collection of 80’s style hard rock, that will appeal to all AC/DC, Kix and most Hard Rock Fans in general! Don’t miss this one!
Warning! The videos below, may make your credit card jump out of your wallet and order this disc from ITunes immediately.
