Bowery Boys


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
CBGBs inspired mayhem about the original Bowery Boys that were doing punk before any of us thought about the word. TG plays guitar and makes this a fantastically top tune that captures the vibe. CBGB CBshmeeeBs.....

TG and I are into it, but the place is shit so, Jeez-H, we SO know the score. T's guitar is immense. The Infinites want him to join us permanently.

Lyrics
Oh well The Bowery Boys love the high kicking strippers
Taking white lines, they say it makes your life quicker

Silver flashing leather coming thru the vents now
Dancing like they own you, they’re gonna get you somehow

Bowery Boys, oh they’re The Bowery Boys
Bowery Boys, oh they’re The Bowery Boys
Saying what they like and
Liking what they’re saying
They’re The Bowery Boys and they’re coming your way!

See The Bowery Boys with the rolled up sleeves
They’re fighting on the streets, they’ll show you what they mean

Scoring points all over, now it’s one to seventeen (strike!)
You’re gonna get their message as they’re kickin’ up your scene

Saying what they like and
Liking what they’re saying
They’re The Bowery Boys and they’re coming your way!

Bowery Boys, oh they’re The Bowery Boys
Bowery Boys, oh they’re The Bowery Boys

Kickin’ up a scene….

Enjoyable
This captures the vibe.

Nice guitar work and mix of sounds, with the trebly guitar and deep bass giving a nice contrast of tones.

When I used to play in a punk band I used chorus on my bass a lot so it's good to hear someone else who does it. :)

Bowery Boys
Didn't I see them at the 5 Ninth last week?

You guys really rock this one hard! Really hard!

Jim - this is one of your very best vocal efforts. I especially like the chorus and the very last hanging note in "Kickin' up a sceeeeeeennnnnnneeeeeeee......."

Tom - when you told me you spent some time in the mental ward, I didn't realize it was because of insane guitar solos!!

You guys are NUTS!

high kicking strippers galore
oh yeah man this is good stuff. reminds me of tin machine. love the stage mix - very gritty - has me playing air bass at my desk. the word for this tune is evocative - it takes me right to CBGBs. I'll be skating to this come saturday you bet.

Tin Machine
I quite liked their stuff - nice comparison. Thanks for visiting so long after the CBGBs event. Bud worked his socks off on this challenge. So did Tom.

Thanks for stopping by.
