The Model Sons – We Both Win

Last week’s classic number came from Jack Brennan and the Confidence Men, 2004 Rumble champions – 15 years ago this year. Among that great Rumble year was the short lived Model Sons – who only released a few EPs over their entire existence as a band. I did have them on my morning show on WFNX way back then. The guy who played Cooter on the Dukes of Hazard was also a guest on that radio show. We Both Win, to my knowledge it wasn’t ever official released as a single but I got my hands on it – somehow.
