about

Over the years we’ve ventured out on several “20-Tours”. A 20-Tour, for those in the dark, is completely booked and hosted by fans, usually at their homes (so we’re talking porches, backyards, living rooms) but sometimes at schools, taverns, breweries, reunions, veterans halls, nursing homes, etc. A “20-Tour” is thusly named because we encourage the host to cap the guest-list at around 20 people (not the case anymore, we’ll go way higher, but the name stuck), they usually charge guests $20, and we typically play about 20 songs.

This 20-Tour, May/June 2015, we thought it would be fun to try something new. After our first set, we would find a quiet place away from the stage and give ourselves 15-20 minutes to write a new song—totally from scratch—in homage to the host and their city. It was…difficult.

Our process soon became streamlined (Bonesaw and Sunny would go one direction with the guitars to write the chords and riffs, Smell and I in another with pen and paper to write lyrics), but that didn’t make it any easer. In fact, sometimes it made it harder because Smell and I would be working on a ballad-style cadence and rhyme scheme, only to have Bonesaw and Sunny come at us with an uptempo hip-hop groove. This led to many last second audibles and, obviously, arguments. (The band nearly broke up at Sheila’s in Chicago. Kidding. But not too kidding).

The myriad comedies of error will of course be on unfiltered display here on these recordings, so I won’t dwell, but I hope you all judge these tunes with very gentle gavels because YOU TRY IT, OK? IT’S IMPOSSIBLE! No but anyway…Ya gotta memorize chord changes, measure counts, ya gotta read the lyrics in real time, often in strange, shadowy stage lighting, ya gotta harmonize to a melody that is far from set in stone having just recently been devised. Oftentimes on the walk back to the stage Smell and I would completely forget the melody.

And so, for better or worse, we present to you our “20-Tour Host Theme Song Album”. You will hear false-starts, re-starts, baby’s crying, band members lashing out at each other, band members searching for the right key and groove, and sometimes you’ll even hear the audience fact-check us on the correct name of their town (particularly embarrassing). Which really sort of makes this a comedy album. Whatever…ENJOY! Oh, and PS--we recorded this on an iPhone. Sorry.

And fights the maple eating beetle
Awesome at a backyard game
And Leaves ya feelin' feeble

Throws a double decker party

But who has the best dance moves

Bust move on the driveway girl
Good golly

If you at this party

Full a twenty five year olds

Look like a fool

Cornhole a big game here
But ya heard a Spikeball though?
We'll beat any one Ya'll
But Rob whooped our ass though

Too bad she's a red teamer
Otherwise we'd be friends

It's Raleigh
It's Raleigh
It's Raleigh
Bust move on the driveway girl
Good golly
Track Name: In Buffalo
Big old yard throwin' frisbee hard
Straight at the Kan-Jam Can
You provide the deck and the pizza
And a pit that's full of sand

Rick is takin' pics
Moose is in the pit
Pam comes and jams the kazoo
Her solo was the shit

In buffalo
Everybody knows
The bugs get bad
And boy the snow blows
But they know how to play
They party full throttle
They can make up a game
With a half empty bottle
In buffalo

In buffalo
They turn a pool into sand
28 acres on the penny's land
Throw me a frisbee and pass me beer
Damn I think I might move here
To buffalo

CJ with a slo-mo hack
Spikeball's all about the overhand smack
It won't be another five years
'Til we're comin' back

In buffalo
Everybody knows
The bugs get bad
And boy the snow blows
But they know how to play
They party full throttle
They can make up a game
With a half empty bottle
In buffalo

In buffalo
They turn a pool into sand
28 acres on the penny's land
Throw me a frisbee and pass me beer
Damn I think I might move here
To buffalo
Track Name: Butter For Mayor
Butter
At this point we feel like you are our brother
Even though we do not have the same mother
We've all been on a big boat with each other
Now we're back in Pittsburgh for another

Butter on bread
Makes it taste real good
Oooh-oohhhh
But Butter the man
We'd take him in the whale with us
if we could

Cause butter on corn
Gives it all the flavor
But butter is the man
I'd vote for him if he ran for Pittsburgh mayor

Brad
Evan Sean and Lori
Chrissy Dave
Celebratin Ron on his birthday
This rooftop patio is our fave
Pittsburgh skyline behind us lookin great

Butter on bread
Makes it taste real good
Oooh-oohhhh
But Butter the man
We'd take him in the whale with us
if we could

Cause butter on corn
Gives it all the flavor
But butter is the man
I'd vote for him if he ran for Pittsburgh mayor
Track Name: Rockchester (aka East Rockchester)
People think they know this town
It's been Rochester for years
But after the show at the peters house
And more than a few of those beers
I think it's time for a brand new name
You guys rock so hard
Raising money and playing games
In the neighbors backyard

Let's call it...

EAST ROCK CHESTER
Where grandmas party hard
EAST ROCK CHESTER
Dance parties in the yard
Build a stage, call it a deck
Bake a cake, what the heck
EAST ROCK CHESTER
What do ya think of that?

Kevin can you tell me, are we in heaven?
This show is prime, like the number seven
Jeff you made the bar, you made the stage
It's just about time we start to rage

Kathy everyone would say
You raised a family a that looks so happy
Fund-raising, pass the jar around
Pizza's amazing, it tastes great goin' down

Because it's...

EAST ROCK CHESTER
Where grandmas party hard
EAST ROCK CHESTER
Dance parties in the yard
Build a stage, call it a deck
Bake a cake, what the heck
EAST ROCK CHESTER
What do ya think of that?
Track Name: MTK Tavern
Take a trip up the palisades
Parkway heading north
There's a little town that's tucked away
From the the bustle of New York

The streets are lined with trees
And the shops have open doors
Saw mill parkway take me to
The best place in New York

Mount Kisco
I want to hug and kiss ya
When I'm back in Texas
I'm sure gonna miss ya
MTK tavern
The tacos tasted great
And I'm so glad we had em

We rolled in this small town
Sun was just about down
School of Rock hittin' hard onstage
Nirvana vs. Green Day

Now Texas knows our tacos
So we checked out how y'all do
They came out pretty bangin'
Your chef knows tacos too

Mount Kisco
I want to hug and kiss ya
When I'm back in Texas
I'm sure gonna miss ya
MTK tavern
The tacos tasted great
And I'm so glad we had em

Pam bought a bar to put on shows
We met her on a cruise called Rombello
Andy comin' through with the artsy lights
Sounds good too, what an awesome night

Mount Kisco
I want to hug and kiss ya
When I'm back in Texas
I'm sure gonna miss ya
MTK tavern
The tacos tasted great
And I'm so glad we had em
Track Name: Ben and Evy
Front row rockin' out
The biggest fans, there ain't no doubt
They're up here bustin' moves
To our Austin Texas grooves
Evi and Ben are feelin' the flow
Enjoying the vibe, enjoying the show

Around the corner the malt is made
Thanks to Mark and the beautiful day
My old friend Poop put this show togetha
We couldn't ask for better weatha

Ben sticks his tongue out when I play
He makes a funny face and shakes his arms
Evy takes his hand they start to dance
I hope they have romance
It starts on this farm

Alfred shreds his mandolin
You better believe we'll be back again
Free Will brewed the beer
Burgers on the grille

Oh no check it out
The sheep is roamin' about
The sheep is roamin' about

Ben sticks his tongue out when I play
He makes a funny face and shakes his arms
Evy takes his hand they start to dance
I hope they have romance
It starts on this farm
