Singer, guitarist, producer and DJ, Michael ‘Cub’ Koda is perhaps best known as a record collector, writer and critic. His work editing the All Music Guide, his journalism, reviews and album notes made his reputation for clear writing and thoughtful criticism. Cub’s music career reached it’s height when his band Brownsville Station took his song ‘Smokin’ in the Boy’s Room’ to No.3 in the Billboard charts, selling two million copies. In 1980, Cub joined up with the late Hound Dog Taylor‘s band The Houserockers. They played and recorded for twenty years before Cub lost his fight against kidney disease.
