ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From The Sidewalk Boys RPM Web log (www.rpmchallenge.com):

Sunday, 29 January 2006

Well, you walk down the road sometimes and find stuff that people throw away. So you take it home and find a use for it. We're a work in progress but we hope to find enough trash along the side of the road by February so we'll have enough material to cut 10 tunes. Probably pull an all-nighter or something like that.

Had a Garage Sale The Other Night

Worked on eight tunes. The night ended up more like a garage sale than a trip to the landfill. You know, as a guitar player you always dream of stopping at a garage sale and see an old Gibson or Martin sitting over in the corner. The woman having the sale says, "Oh yeah, that was my son's. He bought that about 25 or 30 years ago because he wanted to learn to play guitar. It's been sitting in his closet for years. Needs new strings I think. I'll sell it to you for $25.00."

We swapped old ditties and came up with some new licks. Traded "Tall Tales" about bands and gigs gone by. They got taller as the night progressed, with the help of some local brews.

Tom had the best quote; "The guitar gives you the planet to populate your lyrics."

Need a trip to the woodshed

Recorded nine tunes last night. Just over 35 minutes running right now. Tom thinks we need to "rough it up a bit Brian... things went too smooth." We're thinking that a trip to the woodshed might get the job done.

Something Shiny

Didn’t quite make it out to the woodshed last night but we cleaned out a few closets and got the dogs together to wrestle over the bones. They slammed about and interupted a song or two but were as well behaved as a yellow and black labrador retriever can be when they get together.

Tom’s digging this project because he say’s “everybody’s dragging their own prison around. You need something like this to get you out of the rut. Finding something shiny is the challenge.”

Just Under "The Wire"

We were worried that we’d have to take some of the tunes out with the trash, but we came in two minutes under "The Wire." Even Phil’s tracks from Brooklyn lined up pretty well.

Now it’s time to get back to the real projects at hand: Tom Richter’s Bernoulli Sailors CD, “Abandoned Appliances,” and Brian Goetz’s Chunkabilly CD, “You Are Invited to Brian.” More info on those releases will be up soon @ www.Chunkabillymusic.com or check out www.MySpace.com/chunkabillymusic

There are a lot of mysteries out there. The biggest one just might be the song that happens when you hit record.
