Crush


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Eric had a dead end song about Carrie Brownstein. Bob and Craig desired a rock tune to pound about on. Then the magic bomb went off. Boom.

I challenge you to find anything hotter than your rock and roll crush. Up there on stage, rocking the hell out of your world. Who've you got your eyes on?

Lyrics
When I was 16
Saw Carrie Brownstein
On the cover of a Sleater-Kinney LP
But she won't want me
And she won't like me
I'm not her type, if you know what I mean.

And I say boom boom boom shake the room (uh huh)

I know you feel
When I saw Kim Deal
She's thumping loudly but my heart was thumping louder
She's so gigantic
I did a cannonball
Into the mosh pit but I hope I didn't crowd her.

And I say boom boom boom shake the room (uh huh)

It's never ending, It still affects you
(I've got a backstage pass)
I saw Tegan and Sara play when I was 32
(that I got from my cousin who works the concessions)
All I wanted was to hitch a ride on that tour bus
(I've got a backstage pass, backstage pass)
And follow them around like Pamela Des Barres

Boom Boom Boom shake the room (uh huh)

I love it! riffs, guitar sounds, vocals sound great, the chorus is suitably sublime. nice joyful vibe.
what a great sound, everything one could wish for from a virtual indie rock supergroup! downloaded.

Nah, not that bad. It's actually a pretty good book!
it's kind of a warts-and-all self-portrayal.

Groovy!

Digging this totally! - A supergroup indeed!

Well done the Shermans - we can hear ALL of your individual stylings, but merged into one it's a whole new concept. Bigger than the sum of it's parts, whatever that means...

single of of the week, of the month, of the year. Makes me believe in the concept of supergroup again. It's quite a seamless collab. This chorus has something kim-dealesque about it.

(personal rant: it's too bad the pixies never recorded cannonball. That would have been the top.)

by the way
having obviously drunk too much Southern comfort for my own comfort, I once offered my scarf to the girl guitarist of indie-pop underachievers Lush after one of their boston shows. She looked very surprised, and, well a little compassionate.

I kind of liked
Ricky Nelson. Of course, I met him on his parent's tv show. Twenty years later , Ricky played a Home Show in Omaha Nebraska. He was still cute. Not long after that, he was gone. But, I digress. Neat. Clapping along with you. Thanks.

Love the sparseness, just like it was live. No massive overdubs, no drummer with 5 (extra) arms. Cool. Keep it goin guys.

Teenage Crush
Not on this tune, this was our Rock n Roll crush tune - Eric happened to be 16 when Carrie Brownstein changed his life. I was mid twenties when Come on Pilgrim was spinning on my record player. Craig was a mature 32 when he chose a pair of alt rock chickies.

Thanks for the comments. We try to put a chorus in every song. I think that was Eric's idea, but I could be wrong.
