"Taking its name from the gritty 1980 prison-corruption drama starring Robert Redford, local hard-rock supergroup Brubaker deals out burly, tough-as-nails tunes befitting the moniker. If you are a Bay Area music fan who wonders why 107.7 "The Bone" struggles to play anything from the past decade and can't handle the testicle-challenged indie wimp rock of Live 105, Brubaker offers the prescription for what ails you... matching Smith’s gruff, authoritative growl and wailing slide guitar to Riley’s inventive riffs and the relentless groove of the muscular rhythm section, Brubaker quickly assembled an arsenal of head-banging, Southern-fried boogie jams. With a bluesy vibe that hearkened back to the members’ favorite heavy rock from the 1970s while still bringing in elements of hardcore fury and grunge heft, some of the songs sounded like Molly Hatchet or Ram Jam being blasted out of a punk-rock cannon."
