MP3 Danny & Dusty - Cast Iron Soul

The long-awaited second album from the leaders of Green On Red and The Dream Syndicate

12 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Americana, ROCK: Modern Rock

My Lunch With Dusty

Interior: New Congee Village, Bowery and Houston Streets, NYC.

Scenario: In which two crusty songwriters confront each other''s entrenched as well as flippant beliefs on the who, what, where and why of a potential recording date.

Danny: How''s the ankle?

Dusty: Still broke... it''s got a plate in it... airport security is going to be a nightmare.

Danny: I''m on the search list...

Dusty: They must know you "hate America"...

Danny: I love America, I just hate the people...

A beautiful young lady brings them tea. They point to items on the menu and get back to it.

Dusty: So you got anything? You should have a decade of songs...

Danny: Just stuff from the last year... "the year of living stupidly".

Dusty: You''ve always been good at that...

Danny: I got a Waylon stomp, a Nashville Skyline thing, maybe a rock song or two... you?

Dusty: Nada.

Danny: Nada?

Dusty: The whole year''s been weird...

Danny: What happened?

Dusty: I don''t know... my well ran dry.

Danny: Maybe I can piss in it.

The China doll comes back with steaming bowls on congee. The two old friends let the bowls rest for a moment before digging in.

Danny: Oh sweet Jesus that''s good... well last time as I recall I laid some songs out and you came back with all the good stuff. How long did we write for?

Dusty: Maybe three or four sessions.

Danny: It shows... all those throwaway lines.

Dusty: That''s what''s great about it... no pretense.

Danny: Being purposefully half-baked isn''t pretentious?

Dusty: Oh you were fully baked all right... cooked right through.

Danny: I still haven''t forgiven you for taking out the nasty bits...

Dusty: Come on... "going down on transvestites?" ... real subtle.

Danny: He was the "King of the Losers" for godsake!

Dusty: I guess there''s good cringe and bad cringe.

Danny: No one would think twice if it was prose... that''s why the gangstas are making all the money.

Dusty: Please don''t rap, and no prog either.

Danny: Hobbit rock? Shit don''t swing.

The congee soon disappears and the bowls are whisked away. Danny notices a stuffed fawn on a ledge above his head.

Danny: Hey, who killed Bambi?

Dusty: Wasn''t on the menu. I think we should record in Richmond.

Danny: Yeah? As long as it ain''t all the same guys... I gotta fool myself somehow.

Dusty: Into what?

Danny: Believing that the last twenty years meant something.

Dusty: What has that got to do with them?

Danny: Fuck I don''t know, but it was never a band... I got a band.

Dusty: So I''ve heard. Don''t worry, there''s some great players down there... Hott, Rupe... I''m sure McCarthy would love to play.

Danny: Wait a minute, ain''t that Gutterball?

Dusty: How could it be? Jesus, you''re a cold bastard sometimes.

Danny: Yeah, okay... what am I scared of?

Dusty: What we''re all scared of.

The bill appears and they both throw in a five. Danny grabs a toothpick for second helpings.

Dusty: How come Iggy didn''t live on congee? Cheaper than dogfood.

Danny: What about Foster? I won''t do it without a producer.

Dusty: We don''t need anyone.

Danny: Yeah? Me and you screaming at each other, that sounds like fun.

Dusty: You mean you screaming at me.

Danny: And then feeling bad and letting you take over.

Dusty: JD''s cool, you think he''ll do it?

Danny: Depends if the electro-shock''s got enough kick in it.

Dusty: I was wondering why the lights were flickering. So we on?

Danny: You betcha, Danny and Dusty... back from oblivion... or at least Bakersfield.
