about

We recorded, mixed, and mastered the album at Modern Fuzz Studios in Pomona, CA with the help of Chris Jimenez. This album is the result of 3 and a half years of the Core Four (Sarah, Austin, Dalton, and Daniel) playing and writing music together. In January, we were lucky enough to find a ringer on the drums in Jeremy Adams, and we knew that it was time to put all our hard work into history. The album covers almost every era of the band's songwriting development, starting (chronologically) with the nostalgic Oaktown Shakedown, our first original song, and ending with the post-apocalyptic vignettes told in Nautilus, Only Show in Town, and Meltdown. The songs take influence from blues, funk, jam bands, and folk traditions, but are all rooted in our deep desire to Rock n Roll.

Track Name: Only Show In Town
He had the blues, Johnny
Not much to do, Johnny
But sit around and watch the needle
They found an old antenna
Hooked up the tunes, you betta bet
They kept it loose they kept it real

When theres nothing left on earth
And weve all gone underground
Well i bet youll tune in
To the only show in town

No one was safe from it
The human race was runnin out
They wouldnt make it very far
One day the calls stopped comin
They left the needle runnin
They rambled on into the dark

When theres nothing left on earth
And weve all gone underground
Well i bet youll tune in
To the only show in town

The starman said ‘youre doing a hell of a job’
You boys keep me going, please dont let the music stop

When theres nothing left on earth
And we've all gone underground
Well i bet youll tune in
To the only show in town
Track Name: Meltdown
Well they called it the countdown
Then the cable cuts out
Sure looks like a meltdown
What are we fighting about


Gonna have a, New Mexico Sunrise in the middle of the night
Now we’ve got 60 years of winter if we make it to daylight
Daddy bought you tickets on the Lazarus Express
Its funny how your money makes you better than the rest

Well you said that you loved me
That you’d stay by my side
But when they told you the way out
Baby you told me goodbye


Gonna have a, New Mexico Sunrise in the middle of the night
Now we’ve got 60 years of winter and the kids are not alright
Daddy bought you tickets on the Lazarus Express
Its funny how your money makes you better than the rest

Did you get what you paid for
When the curtain came down
Are you gonna be lonely
Livin in this ghost town

Gonna have a, New Mexico Sunrise in the middle of the night
Now we’ve got 60 years of winter if we make it to daylight
Daddy bought you tickets on the Lazarus Express
Its funny how your money makes you better than the rest

Bridge

Gonna have a, New Mexico Sunrise in the middle of the night

Track Name: Take Your Love
You ask me what it's like to live inside of my shoes
Don't you ask questions you don't wanna know the answer to
I'm going on the road
I can't make it on my own
I'm down on my knees
I beg you baby please

Don't ever take your love away
Why don't you see it for a rainy day
Don't ever take your love away
Take your love away

Where are you goin baby I can't take you there
I wanna feel you like I feel that midnight air
It's been so long, let me take you there
I'm going on the road
I can't make it on my own

I beg you baby please

Don't ever take your love away
Why don't you see it for a rainy day
Don't ever take your love away
Take your love away

It's been so long, let me take you there
She said just one more thing... You gotta cut your hair
Track Name: Oaktown Shakedown
Let me tell you bout a place I know, its the place to go, for that heart and soul

Gimme one good reason not to walk out that door

Tell me one more time what it is you like
Tell me where you gonna be tonight
Gimme one more chance to show you

Tell me why we can't relate
All I want to do is stay up late, (and talk to you my dear)
I'm running out of things to say
You're givin up, but wait, I didn't even get your name

Tell me why, Tell me why
Oh I can't sleep at night
Baby that's what I get for tryin
Tell me why, Tell me why
Oh I can't sleep at night

Track Name: Good Luck Kid
I don't wanna live alone
What if I choke and die
There'll be no one to save me
There'll be no one to cry

Good luck kid
Your in your own
Good luck kid
Your cover's blown

What if I leave my lights on
When I go away
I forgot to feed my goldfish
That boys seen better days

Good luck kid
Your in your own
Good luck kid
Your cover's blown

There's nothin in the fridge
I guess I'll order out
My neighbor's such a dick
So I play my music loud

Good luck kid
Your in your own
Good luck kid
Your cover's blown

My buddies said they'd stay
And we could have a time
Now they work in corporate boxes
And i must resort to crime

Good luck kid
Your in your own
Good luck kid
Your cover's blown
