It's a lot of guitar/guitar-synth and drums with unsloped bass (and tenor sax on a few tracks.) It swings, rocks and even waltzes but is loud and infuriated and in places it's totally loose
From the liner notes (by bassist Jack Helsley):
It was inevitable.
What Benny Goodman birthed in 1935, bebop did a grievous drive-by on
and so it goes
The end of the millennium found our heroes ....(oh, how shall we say) out of favor with the current regime?
on the run?
who am I kidding,
They were always the underdog
the end of the sci-fi/noir dance crazy left them high and dry
our boys were out sourced.
but I guess it was for he best: assembly line, balliwood, video game lip-sync soundtrack...
they would rather die first
You want the truth?
Well you better hurry up, because the bosses are rewriting history almost as fast as we can crank it out.
This ain't no truth sugar
You know what this is?
Yeah, that's it
drunk staggering out of the party with his musical lampshade askew
a crayon drawing, hung with care on the ice box full with cacophony
that middle of the night voice mail that you don't remember leaving
yeah, right...parting snapshot
we are not really sure of everything that went on...but it looked like a hell of a good time.
....they are gone....but they left this hastily scrawled note
Maybe if they can find a mail box out there, they'll send us back a post card...
