ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Happy Talk Band is a four piece group form New Orleans composed of exiles from, respectively, Massachusetts, New York, Arizona, and California. Drawing influences from traditional country, early rock, substance abuse, and crippling bouts of depression, Happy Talk has managed to amass a loyal following of terminally bored borderline suicides and fashionably dressed idiot savants. The band's happy-go-lucky compositions lament the joys and pitfalls of booze, fist fighting, bank robbery, murder, religion, dope, exotic dancing, and family values. Upright bassist, Mike Lenore; drummer, Andy Harris; and lead guitarist, Bailey Smith work tirelessly to orchestrate tragedy in singer/songwriter Luke Allen's life to insure the integrity of future material. As Mr. Harris says, regarding the music, "It's not about fun, buddy. It's about the truth."
