The success of High Noon was instrumental in the rise of a number of other Austin rockabilly performers, including Marti Brom. When she and her husband Bob moved to Austin in 1991, he encouraged her to perform and with some very able assistance from her Jet-Tone Boys (drummer Shaun Young and bassist Kevin Smith of High Noon, plus guitarist Todd Wulfmeyer), Brom - compared most often to legends like Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin - caught the attention of Austin's small but dedicated rockabilly crowd. Unfortunately due to the demands of touring, Young and Smith were only sporadically available and consequently, it was hard for Brom to maintain performance and recording consistency. In addition, Marti was preoccupied with having and raising a child. Still, she managed to put out several singles, one live cassette, and contributions to several compilations that helped spread the word about her talents to both national and international rockabilly audiences. Then, came another pregnancy pause for about a year and a half during which the stars of new rockabilly divas like Kim Lenz and Josie Kreuzer began to rise. However, in 1998, Brom came back with a vengeance releasing a unique box set, Mean! with an eight cut CD and four singles (same songs on both). Produced by Brent Wilson (ex-Wagoneers), it's equally divided between covers and Brom originals and shows her back in peak rockin' form. To promote the recording, Marti began to perform more regularly in Austin (with drummer Lisa Pankrantz and guitarist Dave Biller) and on the road with her Jet-Tone Boys (Young, Wulfmeyer, and upright bassist, Billy Horton). Three of her songs were included on Renegade Rockabilly, the companion CD to Billy Poore's 1998 book Rockabilly: A 40 Year Journey. Lassoed Live was re-released on CD by Goofin' in 1999. see: High Noon --David Goodman, author of Modern Twang: An Alternative Country Music Guide and Directory
