lyrics

Hey Throwback, tell us all about your rock & roll,
your rockabilly psychedelic heavy metal of oh so long ago.
"Well the first thing I remember is a 4/4 beat,
living on Bolling Drive off of Hastings Street.
My uncle would drop by and settle into his buzz
and tell me Gene Vincent was the best that ever was.
He played bass and sang a little every Saturday night
in a Moose Lodge cover band, matching jumpsuits gold and white.
My dad called it jukin', my mother rolled her eyes,
my sister played "The time has come...", there were things to realize."
Hey Throwback, tell us more about your rock & roll,
your blues-infused, Brit Invasion preoccupation of oh so long ago.
"I inherited a tape deck from Radio Shack,
so my first seven albums were all on eight-track.
I thought Pigs on the Wing was just one song
with a guitar lead in the middle, and I really wasn't wrong.
My first vinyl tended to be 10 years old or more,
in 1983 I was into Vol. 4.
Finally got a drum set, started hi-in' with the hat,
no one came for miles around, Ian Gillan said that."
Hey Throwback, tell us what became of your rock & roll,
from syndication saturation to the nation of college radio.
"Well I'm the first to admit that it took me awhile,
but I started to catch up down on the left side of the dial.
Found out why Utah ended up with all the shopping carts,
but that answer never reached the modern rock charts.
I saw the Lakeview Man in the long moonlight,
while Mojo's drive-in showed Two-Lane Blacktop every night.
Before downloads killed the album, CDs killed the album side.
Beelzebubba spoke to me, it was my last roller coaster ride."

about

Milk Carton Superstars Orlando, Florida

Milk Carton Superstars make songs out of guitars, drums and some reasonable words. Later Never Now is their new album.
The band formed in 2007 when old friends Guy Larmay (guitars, bass) and Jim Myers (vocals, drums) began writing songs together again for the first time. Based in Orlando, they're often joined on stage by bassist Jeff Boyce and in the studio by producer Justin Beckler.
