"All Wrong" live at El Casino

El Casino in Sant Andreu de la Barca has a nice terrace and a fantastic theatre inside. It was altogether a really nice place to play.

Here's All Wrong, cobbled together from a couple of different videos.

New song: Wake Bill Up!

"Bill's our main man, number one; he can move quicker'n anyone; always on the ball, never missed the gun; tell us the score, Bill, what's going on?"

This song's loosely about Bill Pagel. We're not usually a punk band; we occasionally lean that way.

Lyrics here.

Bill, if you're listening, and you want something a bit more Bob, try No Other Road

New demo:The Kids Don't Like To Rock n Roll

"They'll swing to anything, from ragtime to soul but the kids don't like to Rock n Roll"

The second track from our recent session at La Universal in Hospitalet is in the fine tradition of paeans to Rock n Roll. Is Rock n Roll dead? Nah.

Lyrics here.

New demo: David Bowie's On Sale

"What you leave behind, you leave behind; Half a memory from another time"

We've been recording again at La Universal in Hospitalet, this time, electrically. Is that rhythm a result of being in Spain too long? Is that guitar line from a spaghetti western? Who else is on sale? Only two ways of finding out...

Lyrics here.

Music Video for No Other Road

"Is that... Jack Nicholson in a Mild Antics video?"

Yes, the Mild Antics video for No Other Road / No hay otro camino makes the most of The Wild Ride (1960), which thanks to various omissions of the Corman Brothers, has wound up in the public domain. No other road was open.





Check out the original movie here.
