  • 1. The Apple Brothers: 'Who Have I to Blame' : NPR http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=9274142 The Apple Brothers: 'Who Have I to Blame' Listen add to playlist | download May 3, 2007 - New York City's The Apple Brothers are James Patrick (vocals, guitars) and Lou Robert (drums), a rock 'n' roll duo originally kept to just family. But recent additions to the lineup, Mike Crispe (bass) and Clarence Rivette (guitars), make the band's latest, On An Empty Stomach, sound more full, and more Nashville than New York. The band says it's been collectively inspired by "CCR to GNR, AC/DC to Tom Petty," the band members said. "[We were] weaned on everything from classic rock and Stax soul to outlaw country," the band said. But the band says it keeps a local New York flavor to their countrified rock 'n' roll, referencing local neighborhoods and streets on "Who Am I to Blame." In concert, The Apple Brothers have opened for Cheap Trick, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Junior Brown, among others. The band is recording its as-yet-untitled, third record in May.
