Kingston’s just a cool town; Home of The Tragically Hip. Starting point of The Inbreds. And there’s a lot of great music coming out of there right now. Everyone’s been so nice to us over the years and they’re always up for a sweaty rock n’ roll show. How could we not want to keep going back!?
We just thought it was the perfect summation of what we were writing about. As you go through life you can make your decisions with your heart or your head, and different people choose different paths.
Lyrically I did most of the writing on this one. It seemed to me that I was in a place where the songs were just kind of coming out and it’s usually easier for the singer to sing his own thoughts anyway.
Well we were kind of under the gun to get this one recorded fairly quickly so we had things fleshed out pretty well before we hit the studio. We were on a Canadian tour with Tim Chaisson at the time, so we only had a few weeks here and there. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for banging heads.
Umm?? There may have been one or two. We were pretty much maxed out for time so we just rolled with as many as we had.
I really like how Dress It Up turned out. Jon (Drew) is really good at getting cool guitar sounds and I love the guitar line in that song.
Black Lightning for me for sure. That song just seems to connect with people on some other level. And it’s a fun one to sing.
Oh I think we’d much rather tour the country than wake up early and work a 9 to 5. The pay might be better, but the stories will never be. 😉
