Title - 'All The Misery Money Can Buy'
Artist - Gasoline Lollipops
For those not in the know, Gasoline Lollipops front man, Clay Rose was raised between an outlaw, truck-driving father in the mountains of Colorado and a country song-writing mama in the sticks outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
Clay’s penchant for open roads and trouble making are the backbone of the Gas Pops’ sound. The rest of the band consists of Don Ambory, Scott Coulter, “Bad” Brad Morse, and Kevin Matthews who all come equipped with music degrees from Chicago, Boston, Jacksonville, and Denver, respectively.
They each add flavors of their own background and heritage, further diversifying the band’s signature sound.
Fresh out of the legendary Dockside Studio in Lafayette, Louisiana, Gasoline Lollipops are promoting their new album, All The Misery Money Can Buy (out September 11th, 2020), which pursues happiness and the American Dream to the end of the rainbow and chokes on a pot of gold.
Gas Pops collaborated with Clay’s song-writing Mama, Donna Farar ('Last Thing I Needed' recorded by Willie Nelson and Chris Stapleton) to create this politically-charged union of soul music and Southern rock.

Opening with the blues majesty of 'All The Misery Money Can Buy,' they then back that up with the lo-fi ballad 'Dying Young,' the troubadour invoking Americana of 'Train To Ride,' and then both the upbeat rock of 'Lady Liberty' and the gently frenetic 'Get Up!'
Up next is the gentle ballad 'Nights Are Short' which is followed by the twanging guitars and Hammond key work of 'Flesh and Bone,' the drum-led, slow poke 'Taking Time,' the gruffly-sung 'Bound For Glory,' with the album rounding out on the low brow, sorrowful rendering of 'Gypsy,' and closing on the foot-tappin' growth of both storytelling and vocals of 'Sinnerman.'
