1. YOU AND ME PUSHIN' UP DAISIES (Travis-Greenberger) -from
the still un-released (for the most part) "Don't Leave with the Chimp"
sessions, this one was originally recorded by Men & Volts with
completely different, much more somber tune by Sean Slade.
2. DUMB ENOUGH (Spade) -an Aaron rocker, recorded live
at da 'Coma in August of '93.
3. ANYONE ELSE (Baker Knight) -also from the "Chimp" sesions,
this Ramones-ified Ricky Nelson song has been a staple of the live
shows for years.
4. YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE (I don't know -some friend of
Debbie Boone's?) -with
CARLOS, guest vocalist. recorded live at the dreaded Fiddlebee's, this
would certainly be one of the highlights of the projected "Drunks Can
Sing" cd, featuring great spotaneous drunk invasions of (hopefully)
various bands -submit your today!
5. MUST BE LOVE (Shook) -with
Steve Shook, guitar and background vocal. An ancient live recording of
the original trio, circa 1982. The original, non-ska version of this
one is on Travis & Shook's "Weekend on Mt. Cod" cassette.
6. BLU-ISH (excerpt) (Mason) -my lips are sealed.
7. TEMPER TEMPER (Spade) -with
Klem Klimek, sax, and Steve Wood gallantly standing in for Johnny on
guitar. This one was only performed once, on Labor Day, '92, a day that
yielded much fine tape-age, including the legendary White Prince
version of the "West Side Story" medley, which we're saving up for just
the perfect time and place. Be afraid, be very , very afraid.
8. IN MY DIRECTION (Spampinato) -an obscure Johnny song, recorded
live, circa '89-'90.
9. NOT ANOTHER CHANCE (Spade)
-by the HITCHHIKERS, Aaron's pre-Casuals band, produced by Chandler,
with Tom Carns (bass and vocals) and Dana Squire (drums), from the
great Hitchhiker's ep that never was, which also featured five other
smokin' tracks fromback when they was just pups.
10. SYNTHESIZER TRASH (Travis) -an
out-take from "That's That", newly re-mixed, that also features the
afore-mentioned Tom Carns and the legendary Ed Andrews...over a decade
in the making.
1. NINE O'CLOCK (Travis) -an
effort to unravel the mysteries of getting up in the morning, this is
an outtake from the "Ape" sessions, many of which were issued on the
"It is Balloon" cd.
2. I CAN ONLY GIVE YOU EVERYTHING (T. Scott-P. Coulter) -Aaron
nails the old Them favorite frmo back when Van was still the man,
recorded live at (you guessed it) da 'Coma, August 4, 1996, as was...
3. DON'T LOSE IT (Spampinato) -freshly re-arranged, please
ignore the frightening bass flubs on the bridge.
4. VISIT TO A DUPLEX PLANET (Travis) -a Chandler solo recording that
was used as the theme song to the David Greenberger stage show of the
5. LATIN LUPE LU (DUB) (Medley) -a (mostly) Rikki re-working of a
live version, we were thinking of Gerations X's "Wild Youth" dub.
6. BIRTHDAY GIRL (Travis) -from
"Ivan in Paris", Chandler's intended second solo cd, this version
features Tim Dickey on acoustic guitar and Dave on drums.
7. SUPERCOOLED (Spade) -another "Ape" outtake
8. NUBBETTE (Travis) -aw,
jeeze, I don't know, I just work here...
9. DUKE OF EARL (Williams-Dixon-Edwards) -another classic ripped to shreds
10. AT DA 'COMA (Spampinato-Travis) -I can't watch
11. ROCK 'N' ROLL, ALL MY LIFE (Casuals-Dave)
-with DAVE, guest vocalist, a timely return back to the "Drunks Can
Sing" project. At last, someone to sum it all up concisely. God bless
