Go, Go Girl

We all love the Replacements.  Paul Westerberg is an idol of mine. I love his lyrics and the Replacements “oh fuck it, let’s go for it” style. 

Go, Go Girl is one of my favorite songs off our new record. I love the lyrics. It’s the story of a spoiled girl who always gets her way.  Tony plays some sax bits here which really add to the feel of the song.  We do a lot of styles but sometimes it’s fun to just crank the amps and let it rip!  And I know our fans are really enjoying this one

The Crystal Ship

We love the sound of the Doors (a lot of our influences are from the 60’s & 70’s).  I always wanted to do a Doors cover & “The Crystal Ship” seemed perfect.  Such a beautiful song.  I just did a single guitar and vocal.  I really like the way this turned out. Hope you do too.

D.I.Y Already

D.I.Y. Already was written for a project on the @nottywood show.  The focus was “anti-Grammies”, due to the homogeneous nature of the music normally found there.  We have nothing against the Grammies, and actually enjoy some of the music for what it is.  We took this opportunity to write a song about our philosophy of music, which is definitely D.I.Y.  

The chorus riff is from a song from another of our records (self-plagiarized!), but what the hell.  Basic drums-bass-guitar (the basis of most of our songs) sets this one up.   Lyrically this one speaks to auto tuning, and boredom with the state of most commercial music today.  

We love to work with other artists , but our hearts are always in D.I.Y

She Just Cried

This one started out as a Motown style pop song but (as is usually the case with us) mutated into something a little different. Tony added some “sitarist” sounding bits and even played saxophone on the track.  Fred always amazes me with his creativity.  These guys are always a blast to write and record with because I never know where it’ll go.

Lonely Boy

This was a bit of a strange one for us. It started as a swinging acoustic track and Tony transformed it into what you hear today.  He’s playing the jazzy keyboard parts and Fred plays the jazzy drums.  I’m on vocals and of course I added slide guitar ( what else could I do lol).  This one was influenced by the Doors (I gave a little homage on the song’s coda).  The guy in the song is having a tough time in his love life (to say the least).  This is turning out to be one of my favorite tracks on the record (thanks Tony!)
