Lifeboat ... new song coming

May 24, 2016, 10:08 am (Charlie)

Just wanted to let you know that we're working on getting a new song/single done.  Been in the studio with this one for a while - real departure for us, very earnest, more contemporary, featuring female vocals.  We've had the song written for a long time and looking forward to doing this one up right and showing our sentimental, pop side.  Stay tuned!

Tom Waits' Birthday - Our Favorite Tom Songs

December 7, 2015, 9:24 pm (Charlie)

Today is Tom Waits' birthday.

We've made some lists. What are YOUR Tom Waits favorites?

-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-

From Spud:

Celebrating Tom Waits’ birthday tonight with a listening session at Casa de Davenport … I love all the early stuff. But anything from Swordfishtrombones, Frank’s Wild Years, Mule Variations…. there’s soooooooo much great stuff even after he stopped being the piano playing crooner & got that artist bee in his derby-bonnet.  One of my all-time favs, the album that boasts such great melancholy tracks as Lost in the Harbour, Poor Edward, No One Knows I’m Gone, and the title track, Alice:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71juNRicCzo

Oh yea …. Happy Birthday, Tom. We’re all glad you were born :)

91X Radio - Plugging LawnChairs

November 23, 2015, 9:23 am (Charlie)

Always nice to be on 91X radio with friend of the band and dean of local music, Tim Pyles.  We were talking making LawnChairs video, live shows in 2016, San Diego music and girls eating Velveeta.

LawnChairsVid-Sunset

Our new music video for "LawnChairs" is officially released today.  Viewable several places but YouTube is probably the best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svwBB76yXGE

It's the tender story of the band having fun at the supposed end of the world while the neighbors are cowering.  Beer and nachos and fun rule the day.

Incredible production team made this thing, we are super proud of it.  Details about the filming are here.  We hope you like it.  If you do, liking/commenting/sharing at YouTube is a great thing for us.  Let's go viral, people.

xxxooo,
