Jeff (aka Eclectic Music Lover) does a nice job of reviewing our music & focuses on our lyrics (which we’re really proud of). Read it here:

🎶You can’t buy my house. Unless the Board of Health changes their mind🎶
Tin City is a song from our first record. “Tin City” is also the nickname of the trailer park I lived in. Lots of interesting people there (as an aside, a lot of what “So Strange” from our latest record is about is based on conversations I heard my neighbors having through the paper-thin trailer walls). My trailer caught fire once in the Winter. Couldn’t get to the fire extinguisher so I and a neighbor put out the fire with snow!
🎶You can’t drive my car. You’ll never get it to start. You can’t drive my car. You haven’t got all the right parts🎶
“All the right parts” isn’t a sexual reference. My cars were always so crappy I had to carry spare parts and tools at all times for roadside repairs. I think I spent more time pushing them than driving em!
We were going for a New York a Dolls vibe on this one. Brings back memories…
Don’t You Listen originally appeared on our debut record “Make The Noise”. We re-recorded it as an acoustic tune on “Let’s Pretend”. This original version is more of a Byrds-REM kind of thing. “Deceptively Simple” it was called by a reviewer (there are quite a few chords in this one).
This track almost didn’t make it on the record. We were pretty much finished when we were sitting around watching movies. “Hedwig & the Angry Inch” was on (cool movie BTW, great soundtrack). We were inspired by the track “Angry Inch” and came up with “Girl”. Kinda reminds me a little of Material Issue in a way.
Guitar, bass & drums on this one. Tony came up with the “Oh La La La” bit. Used my Teisco copy guitar
This one turned out to be a fan favorite from our debut record
History Never Repeats is also from our debut record. This one features acoustic guitar, electric guitar with volume pedal, and various percussion .
🎶Parking lot nights locked in lover’s embrace. Seem so long ago, doesn’t matter now🎶
It’s lamenting a love affair that’s gone, but both people can’t quite get over it
🎶We see each other on the street. Are we really trying not to meet?🎶
