Brian J. Stafford of Michigan raves about the TwangTones:
"I just got an email from a friend of mine telling me about your band...I just listened to some of your music on CD baby...I honestly couldn''t believe that anyone would put that much effort into creating an album...So I thought that I would tell you...you''re one of the few bands...I...like...You guys are...the whole point of what music is all about."
Thanks BJ best of luck...the verdict is in BJ is our biggest fan!
Obscurity explores life on a treadmill, ill-founded relationships, violence, alcohol and addictions, perversions, liars, poverty, and failure. Obscurity also includes tracks that have fun with pop culture and love songs.
Here are the lyrics to "Drain", Track 1 on the CD.

Mary sits alone inside herself
wearing hurts real and imagined
Outside herself like a broken chain
A nail rusted and dented
She wears the slings and arrows of things
Left unsaid floating Poe-like in her head
Because she can''t because she won''t
Because she just won''t let it go
Mary lives life unlived
Mary lives life what if
Mary lives life unexplained
Mary''s life goes down the drain
Tommy has a house on a quiet street
He sits silently dejected in retreat
Listening to the swoosh, the swoop and gurgle
Of water running over dishes
Drip-drip goes the faucet of his tub
Clang-clang go the pipes in paneled walls
Blather-blather his favorite shows
Which change when cancelled why nobody knows
Tommy lives life unlived
Tommy lives life what if
Tommy lives life unexplained
Tommy''s life gone down the drain
