Oh No! We've gone from #1 to #5 after 3 months! Oh Noes!
As I look at the latest list I notice that there are some pretty decent dang musicians on it. We're grateful to be included :-)
For all those listening to Mystery Train, David was saying some nice stuff about the album cover,here it is.
We're chatting on air right now. We had a nice chat and Dave played some stuff.
By the way here's that review I mentioned from No Depression
You know that thing about reviews where
A: you claim you don't care (you're too cool for that but secretly you weep like a One Direction Fan who cant download their screensaver! Zaynn!! NOOO!!!)
B: WTF was the reviewer thinking when they included a slightly bizarre polemic about the military/industrial complex in your review?
(dude talk about the product fer cryin out loud, we need to sell cd's here, what are you, a pinko?)
Well BLEEP all that because according to this review in No Depression, I've got a bigger pair of Cherries than James Taylor.
BEST REVIEW EVER.
Sweet Baby James, sorry dude, love your work (seriously, long time fan, first time caller) the Cod Piece has passed to me. I'm gonna get a gig in a Cameo videoclip.
I think the review also says some nice stuff about the band and other stuff, I dunno, I posted the boys the link, they can blog about themselves, but seriously, James Taylor con Cojones is just the sweetest thing I think anyone has ever said to me. (sniffle).
Thoughts of Giant 'Nads fill my head. My work here is done.
It's all good until they get a Big Head (ROFL) and go their own way for a solo project 'Just Nuts'.BWAHAHAHA (sorry, losing it here)
JV at the Blues Underground Network has included one of our songs from the new album in their most recent podcast.
In fact, we're first track :-) yup, it's Black Crow. Given their excellent taste in music, the rest of the podcast ought to be awesome ;-)
