2006-10-02 : Music blogging: Dog songs 3
This'll be a quick one. The straight-up rockingest band whose cds I own is The Stone Coyotes. I've seen them live a couple of times; I don't know whether they're actually local or just around here all the time. Let's see, the first time I saw them they were touring for Church of the Falling Rain and my friend Loren's band opened for them at Pearl Street in Northampton. I went to see Loren and then The Stone Coyotes kicked my ass for me.
That show may've been the very first time I ever bought a beer in a bar. Huh.
Also, I thought they'd've been better if they'd hired Loren as their drummer. But I understand that the band's a father-daughter-husband combo or something like that, and Loren wasn't any of those three things to them. So, no odds there.
Anyway! Here's a murder ballad: "Where the Old Oak Grows" from Situation Out Of Control. It's nice and Doggy. I'd also put up "Out of Harm's Way" from Church of the Falling Rain as a Dog song, but my cd seems to have gone missing.
We lie down on a bed of thorns
Walk through fire on feet of clay
Read a book with the pages torn
Sayin', "Keep us out of harm's way"
You can listen to a bunch of their songs on the music page of their website - and I see that they've included "Where the Old Oak Grows" but excluded "Out of Harm's Way" too. Oh well.
