I think this guy passed through Huntington Beach and lived under the pier for a while.

Yeah love it, I'd rather listen to this than the tired classics and formulaic pop you get on UK radio.

Aah thank you very much, Pauline. The cymbal was employed by the drummer Herman, but it was part of the whole drum set.

I freaking love this. The abandon and swing of this joyous psycho-western ghost-town romp are a singular treat for me-I agree with balcerebon and Richie and join IE in swooning... The words (and dialogue) are inspired and unique-the music continually engaging.

(BTW, are you employing merely a cymbol for percussion? It sounds just perfect no matter the case...I'd like to try that! ) I love so much great work from this old stash. Day-um.

Seriously, I don't get any of these references. This almost goes hardcore at points. I can't think of any comparisons. I think lyrically and melodically, this could be a Frank Black song. That's as close as I can get. Dude, if my current tune was a master piece like this, I would be so happy. My archival material, (and there is a bit) sucks in complete totality compared to this. I am humbled and in complete awe. To those who suffer indignation at my swooning, screw you. This is really good music.

Wow thanks Richie. I'm still surprised how well these 'oldies' are being received here.That's so great and where was Red Fizz back then. So good to find such a sweet and attentive audience here. Thank you all for listening , commenting. This was from the second demo of my band Hairy Love Gum, recorded in December 1996. the intro came from a Leadbelly recording.

It reminds me of David Byrne, Bob Dylan, with a tiny hint of Arcade Fire thrown in on the chorus....but it sounds like it's own thing completely. I really like this song alot.

right on! "wanna buy a bike" is the perfect ending.
when you do these americana tunes they always take on a appealing darkness..

Disjointed joy-Violent Femmes meets Neil Young meets a zombie western set in a dust-encrusted punk ghost town...Extra credit! Love the arrangement and fun attitude.
