Verbena - My Baby Got Shot
Verbena are one of my favorite bands off all time! Its a shame they ended. Now Scott Bondy (the vocalist of this band from the past) have a solo career, he is called AA Bondy and he released his first album "American Hearts" in August 21 of 2007 by the label Superphonic. He abandoned the Rock/ Blues and get into Folk/ Acoustic sound...
Wearing their animosity on their sleeve, Birmingham, AL-based Verbena bear more than a slight resemblance to Nirvana with their gritty, aggressive rock and singer/guitarist Scott Bondy's soul-bearing vocals. Bondy began playing with Les Nuby (drums) and Daniel Johnston (bassist) when the three were in high school in the early '90s. Ann Marie Griffin (singer/guitarist) joined the trio, called Shallow, and shared songwriting duties with Bondy. Nuby left the group and was replaced by original Remy Zero drummer Louis Schefano. The band renamed itself Verbena and released the EP, Pilot Park, on Merge. Nuby rejoined the band a year later. Verbena's debut full-length, Souls for Sale, attracted attention from Capitol and Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, who agreed to produce the band's major-label debut, Into the Pink. In 1999, Johnston left the band, making Verbena a trio once again. It would be another four years until Verbena would rise again. In 2003, Nuby, Bondy, and Daviston resumed schedule with Capitol for their third album, 2003's La Musica Negra, which continued the band's move towards straight-ahead rock.
This video is from "Into the Pink" album. In my opinion is a masterpiece in music and video terms. Check it out:
