Music by the Campfire

Now that blatant shills are out of the way, I'd like to scratch making an album from my bucket list. We started practicing about two years ago in this awesome studio outside of Ann Arbor, MI. Ann Arbor was where The Stooges were born. Those were days when progressive music was encouraged and auto tuning was unheard of, mostly because it didn't exist. I'd like to think we could have played with The Stooges if we had a time machine, but we don't. Instead, they played with the MC5, who were arguably the first punk band. Ever. Although, The Monks can make a claim to that too. I don't mean the 80s version of the Monks either.

So here's the thing: if you like garage rock or punk, you'd probably really like us. I kind of wish we were all five years older, because maybe then we would have released this album in the earlier part of the century when all sorts of bands were getting signed up because they shared the same sound we do. Turns out a lot of those bands were somewhat superficial. The Vines aren't really all that deep. Turns out some of those bands were anything but superficial. The Strokes are pretty deep. 

Either way, what I'm after is non wrestling fans buying our album. That's because I know that lots of non wrestling fans read this. Nothing against wrestling fans, most are pretty cool guys who just dig action. But then there's some girls who are just sixes and sevens, man. Just nuts. Creepily nuts, I might add. Again, this is not ALL femme fans...I guess I really don't need to justify this, but whatever. I felt kind of bad typing it, but not bad enough to delete it, because there's some truth there.

I promise if you buy our album you'll really like at least three songs. Bet.
