by The KLOCKS

Spanning the decades of the 70's,80's,90's, and todays music. The KLOCKS Greatest hit's chronicle an aging cover band longing for a hit with clever satire with "Spinal Tap" references, and a dance re-mix of the Classic Rock Anthem "Time".

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The KLOCKS Greatest Hits

Time - 2005 (David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nicholas Mason, Rick Wright)

The KLOCKS dance remake of the classic Pink Floyd song. Available only on this special edition “Greatest Hits” collection. (Not available in stores)
Clocks Sample used by permission of EMI Records London.

When Worlds Collide - 1997 (Bill Caisse, Angel Cropper, Kim Day)

Previously available only on the MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK of Venus & Mars.
Richie Guy, producer / screenplay writer died of a broken heart on the release day of this picture. Ironically so has everyone who has seen the movie, drawing a strong cult following of suicidal loved starved baby boomers. Brent’s vocal performance landed the song a Grammy nomination in the Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or for Television category, , but was over shadowed by Diane Warren (songwriter) for "Because You Loved Me" (Theme from Up Close & Personal) performed by Céline Dion

Highway Drive-2002 (Bill Caisse, Eric Swanson)

From the album “Hold On Lucy”
The KLOCKS hit the road as they added southern rock guitar guru Bill Caisse to the line up with the demise of the Texas legends “The American Peddlers”
See http://www.aaronbarker.com/peddlers.htm which conveniently omits Bill’s reign as the guitarist for the group from 1981-1993.

It’s Amazing - 2003 (Bill Caisse, Eric Swanson)

From the album “You Can Tune a Piano, But You Can’t Tuna Turducken”
Best know for the jingle line for a popular pharmaceutical company’s Erectile Dysfunction pill.
(It’s Amazing, that I never felt this way before...)
Produced by L.A. native Mel Guenat, who says “This ballad is Amazing.” Asked for comment, lead singer Brent Fields said “It’s Amazing the way our fans have embraced this Amazing song. Just Amazing.”

Problems - 1982 (Ed Doran)

From the now out of print LP “Working Men”
The song has out lived the rest of the albums work because of the experimental CD Single. We were lucky to save this rare version for the fans of the original KLOCKS line up. Some say the song influenced Colin Hay's Sting-like, reggae sounding version of “Down Under” even if they had no idea what a "Vegemite" sandwich was.

The Pull of Your Love - 1999 (Bill Caisse, Angel Cropper, Kim Day)

From the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK of “Circus Smirkus”
I was dreamin' when I wrote this forgive me if it goes astray. The “Drummer Formerly Known as Mack” delivers an astounding performance in true Prince style, as Brent explores his darker side.

You Dog - 2004 (Bill Caisse)

From the CD “Get a Lawyer”
Inspired by the breakup of a close friends 20 year marriage, and other legal battles. This song’s target audience is anyone who has been screwed over by a loved one, and then again by their lawyer. The driving dance R&B groove leaves plenty of room for dancing alone, or with a great deal of space between partners.

Close Your Eyes - 1992 (Ed Doran)

From the LP “Surf Country”
With the popularity of “Gone Country” artists of the 90’s, The KLOCKS served up this “runaway” hit, mixing the contemporary country sound with a little California Surf music. This song was inspired by Ed’s wife Margie as well as his love for traditional Country and Western Lyrics.

Dot Dot Dot - 1986 (Bill Caisse, Brent Fields)

From the out of print LP “Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead”
The lyrics mysteriously came after smoking a “dube” and watching “The Dark Side of Oz” at a party. They became increasingly interested in Dorothy, much the same way Lewis Carroll was of Alice. (Alice in Wonderland) Neither Brent nor Bill will admit to writing the song, and both have stuck to the story that the words magically appeared on the back of a napkin from a Four Seasons restaurant.

White Out Front - 1980 (The KLOCKS)

Only available here on this greatest hit’s CD.
This is obviously a spoof on the 80’s classic by AC/DC “Back in Black”
The main riffs of the song are played backwards and upside down, which inspired the title. The aging vampire character was the obvious choice to bring the “Pasty White Goth” image to mind vs. the “Macho Badass” character of the AC/DC hit.

Great cover!
As always these guys are great musicians. Doing a great cover is so much more difficult than original stuff but these guys do cover songs as well their originals with style and panache. Klocks do Rock!

kewl version of time. I collect everything floyd.
I just played it, but bought it about a month ago in Dallas. I only got it for the recording of the Pink Floyd song you do live, but I was suprised by all the great original music. You should play some of these live too. Go Klocks Go!

Such a fine between clever and stupid!
I loved "THIS IS SPINAL TAP". The references to the movie are cool, but the only spoof on the CD was the AC/DC thing. It's kinda weird the way you played it backwards, or upside down. You guy's rock...saw you in Dallas.

THIS CD KICKS @$$!!!!!!!!
The cd is awesome, great cd to own and listen to on the run or while your cooking. Otherwise I would suggest hearing the band live because the concerts are 10 times better. I still think you should have used the song from The Good-for-Nothing Light Guy LP. You know the Spotlight on Ed song. Keep going tough guys...
