shit sandwich was recorded by eric mcconnell
the main performance on these songs was the saxaphone
he was and is a legend and some say these sessions
these songs are dedicated to the dennis taylor family
i sang and played the electric guitar both lead and rythmn
the east side bulldogs are made up of about 10 or 15 different people
yesterday over drinks i asked elmo buzz where these songs came from.
heres his thoughts on "hey pretty boy, go back to franklin"
"its about hanging out at the three crow
who gives a shit!
and i should add, bocephus sure as shit doesnt have to sit around the three crow
the second song is actually called bocephus
"this song doesnt feature my lead style vocals but rather my take off guitar.
"well thats just a kick ass party hardy shout out to my neigbors over here on the east side of nashville where the men are still men and the sheep are nervous because they've been led over the river to write songs about how country they supposedly are and how deep in the woods they drove before the cranked some country icon and drank a beer on a tailgate while hot chicks who also drove way out into the woods danced.
they know they will never be allowed back over to tomato country without a sound flogging and or a flog sounding. we just flat out kick ass over here and we got the bumper stickers and t-shirts to prove it. for my money you are either down with the east nashville vibe or you are down the road kicking a turd mumbling.
(at some point in this diatribe elmo called me a finger picker. ouch)
"thats about the night i whipped taylor swifts bass players ass in front of his girlfriend and my girlfriend and everybody elses girlfriends. he was all "i dont fight!" and "i won't defend myself" and i was all like "to late fonzie, nobody talks about bocephus like that in the three crowe. nobody. so after a couple a ka-zows and ka-pows i half nelsoned him (wasnt gonna waist a full one) out onto woodland and back off to where ever people go when they leave east nashville. there is no official 360 degree opposite of east nashville because it changes as big and rich travel. anyway, this song is about kickin ass and partying hard.
ways and means
this is a song i co-wrote with my friend peter cooper. he came over the night before the sessions and i told him i had to write an album before i went to bed and so i was just yelling words and not worrying about what they were. so i said just shout something and he said ok im shouting hey hey hey and in two and half minutes we had another song. its about a young girl who moves to the east side to become a rich and famous americana singer and also mentions a money loan from the east sides most successful songwriter warren pash who wrote private eyes for hall and oats which is explained in the song by our back ground style vocalists"
east side bullddog
"this is our band theme song. i was watching the monkees late that night before the sessions and when they said "hey hey were the monkeys" i thought yeah, we need a hey hey im a bulldog song.
of course were not to busy singing to put anybody down. in fact, for the most part were to busy putting people down to sing, but we are proud of how burned out we are and tonight we really might get our cars jacked and or write a hit song or both. in fact, if the car jacker knows anything about back woods bon fire partys you could be sitting in gods pocket and not even know it."
then he said .
"you know,, you've always bugged me snider.
then he yelled
"ROCK AND ROLL MOTHER FUCKERS!!!"
and thus ended my conversation with the man locals now as "the buzz"
enjoy the songs.
