On the Telephone Today: Mark Ortmann of The Bottle Rockets

The Bottle Rockets

Bloodshot Records favorites, The Bottle Rockets are along for the ride on Marshall Crenshaw’s 30th anniversary tour, stopping at Milwaukee’s Shank Hall next week Thursday. Together, since 1993, their tag as the ‘best bar band’ is probably due more to their energy and whiskey-tinged alt country stylings than anything. Now, they present themselves as ‘The Best Band On the Planet!’, and with their staying power throughout years of touring and a brand new album out (Not So Loud), The Bottle Rockets are ready to keep up the pace. Tune into 91.7 FM WMSE today at 2 p.m. for Andy’s Zero Hour show, where he’ll be chatting on the phone with Bottle Rockets drummer, Mark Ortmann. Stay ‘tuned’ to Sonic Diet for a Q&A with the band, next week!
